America's Got Talent is the ultimate feel-good summer show that, over the years, has introduced some impressive musical acts. So in the spirit of looking ahead to sunny days, AGT, and some sure-to-be-impressive melodic auditions, we've put together an AGT-themed playlist that you can make use of all summer long. AGT 2022 can't come soon enough!

"Wannabe" - Spice Girls

How to Watch

Watch the Season 19 premiere of America’s Got Talent Tuesday, May 28 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock

An AGT summer playlist wouldn't be complete without a nod to former Judge, Mel B., and a hit from her internationally top-charting girl group The Spice Girls.

"I Don't Know My Name" - Grace VanderWaal

At just 12 years old, VanderWaal earned the Golden Buzzer with an audition featuring her uplifting original song, "I Don't Know My Name." The tween would go on to win Season 11 of the show.

"Footprint" - Joseph Allen

Howie Mandel used his Golden Buzzer and sent Allen straight to the Quarter-Finals following his performance of his uplifting R&B track, "Footprint." 

"Chai Tea With Heidi" - Heidi Klum and Snoop Dogg

Yes, you read that right. AGT's very own Heidi Klum teamed up with hip-hop legend and American Song Contest Host, Snoop Dogg, to bring fans the model's catchy first single.

"I've Got You Under My Skin" - Storm Large

Storm Large's take on Cole Porter's "I've Got You Under My Skin" (made famous by Frank Sinatra) will never stop being one of our favorite AGT musical auditions—so it makes for a perfect playlist addition. 

"Scandalous" - Mis-Teeq

This throwback track is a nod to our friends across the pond, specifically Britain's Got Talent and AGT: The Champions Judge, Aleesha Dixon. Dixon was a member of the U.K.'s hit 2000s girl group Mis-Teeq, and "Scandalous" was their most successful single.

"Hard to Handle" - Courtney Hadwin

Season 13's Courtney Hadwin shocked the Judges and the audience when she went from shy 13-year-old to powerhouse vocalist and belted out Otis Redding's soul hit "Hard to Handle." 

"It's Okay" - Nightbirde

Nightbirde—who died of cancer in February 2022—captured our hearts when she sang her heartfelt original song, "It's Okay" for her audition.

America's Got Talent Season 17 premieres Tuesday, May 31 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
