"AMERICA'S GOT TALENT" PREMIERES 10TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON MAY 26 WITH NEW FEATURES, EXTREME ACTS AND SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY EPISODE

Enhanced Boot Camp Round, Golden Buzzer and Two-Hour Series Retrospective on Tap for Upcoming Season

NEW YORK - April 2, 2015 - "America's Got Talent," NBC's hit reality-competition series, announced today new features and surprises to celebrate its 10th anniversary season, premiering Tuesday, May 26 (8-10p.m. ET). New features will include an enhanced Golden Buzzer, bigger and more extreme acts, new elements in the boot camp round of auditions and a two-hour series retrospective.

To accommodate acts that are simply too big for the theater, "AGT" will bring the show outdoors to showcase some of the biggest and most dangerous acts to ever audition. Similar to the acts in theater, the extreme contestants, filmed at the Fairplex in Pomona, Calif., will be subject to the judges' dreaded "X" buzzers.

This season's Golden Buzzer will send an act from the audition stage directly to the live performance shows at Radio City Music Hall. Each judge can hit the Golden Buzzer only once for an act they think has what it takes to win America's vote. Live performance shows will premiere Tuesday, Aug. 11 (8-10 p.m.).

A new version of boot camp will shake things up this season, beginning Tuesday, July 14 (8-10 p.m. ET). Each week, one judge will receive a special advantage over the others in determining which acts become part of the Top 36 to perform live for America's vote.

To celebrate a decade of talent, "AGT" will also debut a two-hour special featuring the best acts of the series, the most heartwarming stories, the oddest personalities and the biggest show-stopping moments from the last 10 years.

Tickets are available now for the final audition tapings, April 6-8 and April 10-11 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Calif. www.nbc.com/tickets

The only competition show open to all ages and all talents, "America's Got Talent" stars host Nick Cannon and judges Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howard Stern. Last summer, "America's Got Talent" remained the #1 summer show in total viewers for the ninth consecutive year. For the first time in the show's history, America chose a magician as their winner: Rhode Island native Mat Franco, who will star in two upcoming NBC primetime specials that will capture Mat as he prepares to open his own show in Las Vegas at the LINQ Hotel & Casino. Along the way Franco will perform magic for big-name celebrities and for his family, friends and everyday Americans who helped make his dream come true.

"Got Talent" is officially the most successful global TV format in history with 67 original versions across the world. The format airs in 193 territories globally. "America's Got Talent" began on NBC in 2006, and has launched the careers of Terry Fator, Lindsay Sterling and Jackie Evancho, among others.

"America's Got Talent" is produced by FremantleMedia North America and Syco Entertainment. Simon Cowell, Sam Donnelly, Jason Raff, Trish Kinane and Richard Wallace are the executive producers.
