"America's Got Talent," NBC's top rated summer series from "American Idol" producers FremantleMedia North America and Simon Cowell's SYCO Television, returns for a fifth season this summer with a two-hour premiere on Tuesday, June 1 (8-10 p.m. ET) followed by a Wednesday edition debuting June 2 (9-10 p.m. ET).

With the talent search open to acts of all ages, "America's Got Talent" has brought the variety format back to the forefront of American culture by showcasing performers from across the country. The series is a true celebration of the American spirit, featuring a colorful array of hopeful stars, including singers, dancers, comedians, contortionists, impressionists, jugglers, magicians and ventriloquists, all vying for their chance to strut and perform on stage hoping to win America's hearts -- and the $1 million prize.

Singing chicken farmer Kevin Skinner was crowned the winner of season four and the victory moved the humble country singer to tears in front of the live nationwide audience. Skinner, who also took home the show's $1 million prize, headlined the "America's Got Talent Live," show hosted by Jerry Springer at the Planet Hollywood Casino in Las Vegas this past October.

"America's Got Talent" is produced by FremantleMedia North America and Simon Cowell's SYCO Television. Simon Cowell, Cecile Frot-Coutaz ("American Idol"), Jason Raff, and Ken Warwick ("American Idol") are executive producers.
