Chronology

Season Five of America's Got Talent, an American talent show competition, began broadcasting in the United States during 2010, from June 1 to September 15. Unlike previous seasons, online auditions switched from being made via MySpace, to being made via YouTube, and the quarter-finals including two additional rounds to cover the best auditions from these and those selected as Wildcards during the selection process following the main auditions. As David Hasselhoff had left the program following the conclusion of the fourth season, NBC replaced him in his role with Howie Mandel.

The fifth season was won by soul singer Michael Grimm, with classical crossover singer Jackie Evancho finishing in second, and performance group Fighting Gravity placing third. During its broadcast, the season averaged around 11.02 million viewers, with its season finale becoming the highest watched of any season in the program's history by attracting around 16.41 million viewers.

Season Overview[edit]

Howie Mandel was appointed as Hasselhoff's replacement a week after his departure was announced.

Auditions for the fifth season's competition took place across Winter - mid-Spring 2010, with production staff holding the main auditions that would be filmed within the cities of Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Portland, and Chicago, and at the Universal Orlando Resort. Prior to production starting, David Hasselhoff had decided to leave the program and focus on a new project, leaving NBC to locate a replacement for his role in the judging panel.[2] A week after Hasselhoff announced his departure from America's Got Talent, the network unveiled his successor as Howie Mandel,[3] who had recently finished his fourth season as host of the American edition of Deal or No Deal before its eight-year hiatus began that year.

For this season, the production staff decided to include two new rounds in the quarter-finals. The first was arranged for online auditions - up until the fifth season, most audition made online were made via MySpace, but for this season, production staff altered the rules by stating that all online auditions would now be made via YouTube, in which amongst those submitted the judges would select eleven to participate in the competition alongside one additional act voted for by online voters. Those selected would then partake in a special quarter-final round and compete for a place in the semi-finals. The second new round saw the return of a Wildcard round, first used in the first season, although the format differed - it featured a mixture of those acts who failed to move past the Vegas Verdicts stage but secured a place after being chosen by the judges as Wildcard acts, alongside those who lost their initial quarter-final but were selected by the judges to be given a second chance at advancing into the semi-finals. Because of the new rounds, the rules on how many moved on into the semi-finals was altered and focused on four acts in each advancing - the top three voted for by the public, while the fourth spot would be decided upon by the judges between the acts that had placed fourth and fifth in the public vote. Despite arranging a variety of guest performers for this season, production staff were forced to cancel the involvement of Susan Boyle during the results of the Top 10 final, due to a legal complication - Boyle had been planned to sing a song performed by Lou Reed, but producers had failed to receive the legal rights for it to be used by her, and had to pull her off the program at the last minute.[4]

Of the participants who auditioned for this season, 65 secured a place in the live quarter-finals with twelve in each one - seven of these acts would later be given a second chance in the Wildcard quarter-final, after losing their initial quarter-final. Around 24 quarter-finalists advanced to and were split between the two semi-finals, with 10 of these securing a place in the finals, and 4 becoming grand-finalists. The following below lists the results of each participant's overall performance in this season:
