“America’s Got Talent” Season 12 is close to airing its fourth episode, and for the past three weeks, the ratings for the NBC reality TV show have been improving.
According to TV Line, “America’s Got Talent” Season 12 premiered with a total of 12.1 million viewers and a 2.6 demo rating. On its second week, the reality TV show garnered a total of 12.2 million viewers and a 2.6 demo rating among audiences aged 18 to 49. But the NBC show experienced a huge leap on its third week with a total of 14.97 million viewers or a 3.3 demo rating. These figures made the reality TV show the top non-sports program last week, according to TV by the Numbers.
Meanwhile, a slew of new contestants will be taking the stage on Tuesday night’s episode of “America’s Got Talent Season 12. Prior to its release, a clip featuring an adorable 9-year-old singer named Celine Tam was leaked online. the young girl sang a beautiful rendition of her biggest idol Celine Dion’s song, “My Heart Will Go On.” The crowd cheered Celine on throughout her performance, and she also received a standing ovation from the judges.
Even though it is certain that Celine will make it to the next round, it doesn’t seem like she will be receiving the last golden buzzer from the judges this season. Over the past three weeks, none of the contestants featured in the leak video received a golden buzzer. Additionally, those who received it were not shown until the end of the episode.
As of late, only judge Heidi Klum has not given away her golden buzzer. Last year, the supermodel gave the privilege of automatically advancing to the live shows to singer Sal Valentinetti. In Season 12, Mel B was first to give away her golden buzzer to 12-year-old ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer. Simon Cowell followed by giving his to 29-year-old deaf singer Mandy Harvey. Howie Mandel gave 16-year-old formerly blind contestant Christian Guardino his golden buzzer last week.
Meanwhile, the promo for the upcoming episode states that Tuesday night’s installment will be the biggest one in the history of “America’s Got Talent.” But there was no mention of whether or not Klum will be using her golden buzzer.
“America’s Got Talent” Season 12 airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EDT on NBC.
