Chronology

Season nine of the reality competition series America's Got Talent premiered on May 27, 2014[1] and was won by magician Mat Franco. Nick Cannon returned for his sixth season as host. This is Howie Mandel's fifth season, Howard Stern's third season, and Mel B and Heidi Klum both returned for their second season on the judging panel.[2][3]

The live shows were shot from Radio City Music Hall in New York. The season ended on September 17, 2014. Emily West took second place while Acro Army, a gymnastics group, took third place.

New additions[edit]

On April 8, 2014, NBC announced that America's Got Talent returned to Radio City Music Hall for the live shows, which began on July 29. The Las Vegas rounds were eliminated. Instead, the "bootcamp" round of auditions was held in New York City in front of a live studio audience. Stern confirmed on his radio show that after three acts were taped during "Judgement Week", producers scrapped the live audience concept. Others asserted that the reason was because the show was having a hard time filling seats.[4] Also in this season came the initiation of a "golden buzzer"—which was also unveiled on Season 8 of Britain's Got Talent. Each judge was permitted to press the buzzer only once during the season to have an act go through to the next round, typically used when there is a tie.[5] This is regardless of the other judges' opinions. However, rather than sending acts straight through to the live shows as in Britain's Got Talent, an act on which the Golden Buzzer was used would only be given a free pass to the next round of the competition, Judgment Week. That format was added in the next season.

Forty-eight acts were sent through to the live shows. The judges chose 47 of these acts, with the last contestant chosen by the general public. For the last slot, contestants uploaded their audition videos to the Today website, and the top 3 performed on Rockefeller Plaza. Viewers voted for their favorite act to be sent straight to the live shows.[6]

Preliminary auditions[edit]

The producers' auditions began on October 26, 2013 in Miami. Other audition sites included Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New York City and Providence, Rhode Island.[7] Contestants could also submit a video of their audition online.[8] Auditions in front of the judges were held February 20–22 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, which hosted the live shows during season seven. Judges' auditions were held in New York City at Madison Square Garden from April 3 to April 6 and in Los Angeles at Dolby Theatre from April 21 to April 26.[9]

Golden buzzer[edit]

The Golden Buzzer was only used thrice in its debut season. During the first episode, Stern used the golden buzzer for "Dustin's Dojo", a comedic martial arts act, and they were sent through to the next round. On the July 1 episode, Mandel pressed the buzzer to save "Emmanuel & Phillip Hudson", another comedy act with a popular YouTube channel. Klum used pressed her buzzer for a cyr wheel act named "Brad Henderson". However, her golden buzzer was not televised. However, both televised acts were eliminated at Judgment Week.

Mel B was not seen to use the golden buzzer to save any act. Either she did not use the buzzer, or she did but the acts audition did not air.

Special episode[edit]

A special audition episode aired on Sunday, June 22, 2014 (instead of Tuesday, June 24), showcasing the "best talent on the show this year so far". NBC also announced that two acts (who were not auditioning) would attempt, on the episode, to break one of the Guinness World Records. One act was successful, while the other was not. The successful world record breaker was Professor Splash, who was a contestant on season six.

Judgment Week[edit]

Judgment Week, the second round of auditions, aired as a two night special from July 22–23, 2014, and featured all the acts who made it through the first round of auditions competing for the first 47 spots in the live shows. The 48th spot was later filled by the winner of Today's Got Talent, as described below.

For the first time in the history of the show, this round of competition took place in New York City instead of Las Vegas. However, the format of this round remained the same.
