America’s Got Talent received two special nominations for the 2022 People’s Choice Awards! The reality competition series is nominated for Best Competition Show of 2022. And that's not surprising, considering the show this season was filled with an abundance of mind-blowing performers.

How to Watch

We saw Season 17 unfold with some immensely talented singers, comedians, dancers, and more. The female dance group The Mayyas took home first place, winning the million-dollar prize and a headlining spot in AGT's Las Vegas residency. The group has also been nominated for Best Competition Contestant of 2022 at the People’s Choice Awards.

The Mayyas blew America away from day one, winning a Golden Buzzer from Sofia Vergara during their Audition. Judge Howie Madel said the group’s performance “shook him to his core” during the Live Shows, with Simon Cowell adding that their Act was a “performance that changes the world.”

When NBC Insider spoke with The Mayyas’ choreographer, Nadim Cherfan, he said, "Every girl in this group now believes that dreams do come true. And if you work hard for them, success is 'gonna be there waiting for you. And to never, never doubt yourself. To never, never stop doing what you love.To fight for it. To have a voice. To dance.”

Other finalists of Season 17 included saxophone player Avery Dixon, country trio Chapel Hart, and deepfake technology Act Metaphysic, all of whom helped AGT receive their exciting nomination.
