America's Got Talent 2020 start time, channel

America's Got Talent season 15 airs 8 p.m. ET, tonight and tomorrow night (every Tuesday and Wednesday), on NBC.

Let's watch America's Got Talent 2020 online tonight to see which acts shine in the live shows — and which move on to the next round in the results shows. Season 15 of the NBC reality show has experienced quite a roller coaster. The latest development is that Simon Cowell won't be at the judges table after breaking his back in an electric bike accident. While he's recovering, Kelly Clarkson will take his place alongside Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara. 

America's Got Talent features contestants of all ages performing a variety of acts, from singing to dancing to stunts to magic. They audition for the judges in the hope of making the live shows, where they compete for America's vote to make it to the finals for a shot at the $1 million prize.

America's Got Talent 2020 has been very different from previous seasons though, due to coronavirus pandemic. Some acts auditioned remotely from their homes. 

Now, 44 acts will show off during the quarterfinals round — 11 acts on Tuesday night's live show for four weeks. Viewers can vote at and via the "AGT" App (available through Google Play and on the App Store). 

Then, on Wednesday night's results show, five acts will move through to the semifinals. Fans will have a chance to save an act in jeopardy during the telecast, via the "Dunkin' Save."

America's Got Talent 2020 judges

For AGT season 15, as always, the judges table is led by Howie Mandel and Simon Cowell. Heidi Klum is also back; the supermodel was a judge from 2013 to February 2019 and is returning for this summer's installment. However, she will miss a few audition episodes as an illness forced her to leave production. 

Joining the judges table for the first time is Sofia Vergara, fresh off the end of Modern Family. 

She steps in for two departing judges, Julianne Hough and Gabrielle Union. There was controversy around the latter's exit. Various media outlets like CNN reported that NBC had undertaken an investigation into the show's "toxic" and "racially insensitive" workplace culture.
