In NBCs reality competition series AMERICAS GOT TALENT, aspiring performers duke it out on stage before three celebrity judges who will decide if they get to go on to the next round to compete for the chance to win $1 million. Performers attempt to impress by dancing, singing, playing instruments, and other creative performances. If the judges dont like what they see, they can hit an "X" button in front of them -- and once performers have racked up three Xs theyre sent packing. But if they impress, they graduate to the next round. Throughout it all, the judges offer their criticism, and explain why they believe the contestant has/doesnt have the star quality they are looking for.
