The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

People have lots of different talents all over the world, and it feels good to share. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

The judges are excited, positive, and mostly complimentary. 


Some of the acts appear death-defying or downright scary. Swords are swallowed, folks spin dangerously in the air, etc. 


Occasionally male performers perform with naked torsos, and women sometimes wear body hugging outfits. Occasional jokes can have some mild innuendo, most of which will go over young kids' heads. 




Dunkin' Donuts cups are visible on the judges' table. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that America’s Got Talent: The Champions features previous Got Talent performers competing for an international title. Some of the acts are a little nerve-wracking, and involve the use of swords, fire, and other potential dangers. Comedians sometimes tell jokes that contain mild innuendo, most of which will go over young children's heads. There’s the occasionally tough word (like "hell"), and the Dunkin logo is visible on cups on the judges table. All this being said, it's fun and family-friendly.

What's the story?

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT: THE CHAMPIONS, a spin-off of America’s Got Talent, is giving auditioners, winners, and runners-up of previous cycles of the Got Talent franchise the chance be the named greatest talent in the world. Hosted by Terry Crews, each episode of the show features performers from Great Britain, Australia, Russia, Spain, and a range of other countries who appeared on their nation’s version of the series. Judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Howie Mandel offer their feedback. Two acts advance to the finale, either by receiving the golden buzzer from a judge, or by being selected by voters from all 50 states as that night’s fan favorite. The winner of the finale receives the title and the glory.  

Is it any good?

This entertaining, energetic series introduces the United States to a range of memorable and successful Got Talent acts from all over the world, while giving American viewers a chance to see some of this country’s more popular contestants. While some have become major celebrities in their own countries and are hoping to break into the American entertainment market, others, like runner-up-turned international sensation Susan Boyle, are returning in hopes of taking home a Got Talent title. 

Unlike other installments of America’s Got Talent, the main focus is on positively highlighting the genuine and unique talents different people have showcased over the years thanks to the internationally popular franchise. However, the voting system, which only has people voting from the United States, undermines the international scope of the show. Nonetheless, America’s Got Talent: The Champions is fun to watch, and will very possibly leave you rooting for many acts to win.
