Contestants must receive at least three approvals from the Judges to proceed to the next round. Each Judge (plus AGT Host Terry Crews) also has the opportunity to press the coveted Golden Buzzer, which pushes an Act directly to the Live Shows. Season 18 also introduced the Group Golden Buzzer, in which Crews and all the Judges unanimously pick one Act to also advance.

"Always be as prepared as you can be," AGT winner Shin Lim told NBC Insider when asked about the advice he'd give to future Contestants. "The worst thing you can do, especially if you’re broadcasting your talent to the world, is to not be prepared. When you’re not prepared, then other factors come in that mess you up. There's music, there’s timing. 'Get the right shot for this camera angle,' or, 'Look at this camera, at that angle,' so they can show you well. If you’re not prepared with your own act, you can’t focus on the little things, which really do matter for TV. "
