 Everything to know about the AGT: Fantasy League Finale

After their initial introduction to the AGT stage as part of Judge’s Dream Teams, multiple acts performed again in the Sem-Finals before the entire competition of 40 was down to the Top Ten best of the best Acts in all of Got Talent history. 

They'll head into the two-part Finale where there are no more Golden Buzzers and their fate is ultimately left up to the studio audience. With one performance to prove that they deserve to be crowned the first AGT: Fantasy League champion, the following Top 10 are still in the running to win $250,000 and bragging rights for their Mentor: 

SPOILER ALERT: Below are the Acts that advanced through the first rounds of AGT: Fantasy League.

  • Aerialist: Aidan Bryant, competing for Mel B’s Dream Team
  • Variety act: Billy & Emily England,  competing for Mel B’s Dream Team
  • Dancer: Musa Motha, competing for Simon’s Dream Team
  • Musicians: Pack Drumline, competing for Simon’s Dream Team
  • Choir: Sainted, competing for Simon’s Dream Team
  • Hand/head balancers: The Ramadhani Brothers, competing for Howie’s Dream Team
  • Musician: Kodi Lee, competing for Howie’s Dream Team
  • Variety act: Shadow Ace, competing for Howie’s Dream Team
  • Contortionist: Sofie Dossi, competing for Heidi’s Dream Team
  • Dance/acrobatic group: V. Unbeatable, competing for Heidi’s Dream Team

While the Top 10 Acts alone would make for a world-class Finale, they won’t be alone. Joining them to celebrate the culmination of this competition will be a bevy of guest Acts including performances from Calum Scott, Robin S., Sheila E., and Steven Sanchez.

In addition, AGT fan-favorites Drake Miligan, Chapel Hart, Loren Allred, and Brian Justin Crum will take the stage once again along with Olympic gold medalist David Taylor, who will join one of the finalists for an absolutely unforgettable performance. 

What are the Judges’ Final Dream Teams?

After the Semi-Finals, there have been a slew of Golden Buzzers that allowed the Judges to take Acts from one another. However, the Dream Teams are set in stone going into the Finals with Cowell and Mandle at a distinct advantage with three Acts each while Mel B and Klum only have two. Still, there can only be one winner, so all four Judges have a chance of earning bragging rights over the others if the audience chooses their Act to win it all.

Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, and Howie Mandel stayed in their seats behind the Judges' table, and the one and only Mel B came back, too. The Spice Girl previously served as a Judge on Seasons 8 through 13, in addition to AGT: Champions.

“I think I just had been knocking on the door for way too long, they were like, ‘Okay, we will let her in, we will let her back,'" Mel B explained to Extra about her return. “I got asked. I thought, ‘Yes, who wouldn’t want to join this show?’”

She also told the outlet ahead of the premiere that she was looking forward to working with close friend Klum again. "We’ve never really been apart. We’re always kind of texting each other and sending silly photos and stuff. But to be back with everybody, that’s been quite surreal.”

For those who haven't tuned in yet, you may be curious if Howie scoop up all the comedy Acts and sent the singers to Simon and Mel. Or, did Heidi shake it up and draft all the dancers? You'll just have to catch up on AGT: Fantasy League on Peacock to find out. 

The 40 Acts have already been announced

A full list of all 40 Acts returning to AGT for Fantasy League were announced on November 15, 2023, including past winners Kodi Lee, Darci Lynne, Adrian Stoica & Hurricane, and Aidan Bryant.

The Judges are a part of the competition

Out of a pool of Acts, each Judge chose 10 for their roster, and every week the audience vote determined who moved forward, granting that Act's Judge bragging rights and getting them one step closer to seeing their Act crowned champion. Just like in a sports fantasy league, the Judges are invested in the performance of their players as they acted as Mentors for each round of the competition.

The Golden Buzzer is back...with a twist

Once again, the Golden Buzzer can send an act straight to the Finals, but Judges can also use their Buzzers to take acts from another Judge's team! This could get just as exciting as the instant save. But the final reprieve is, as always, viral fame, which is available to exciting Acts at any time.
