Viva Las Vegas! What You Need to Know About the AGT Live Show's Headlining Acts

A variety show like no other, America's Got Talent presents Superstars Live is a sure way to see some of the show's best talent.

America’s Got Talent has helped send some of our favorite AGT talent into stardom, and we’re willing to bet the Acts are just as good in Las Vegas as they were on the show.

How to Watch

Watch AGT Tuesdays at 8/7c and Wednesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock

Right now, the live competition continues with Judges Howie Mandel, Sofia Vergara, Simon Cowell, and Heidi Klum, deciding which immensely talented Act is deserving of a $1 million prize and the chance to headline in Sin City.

But before the AGT Judges choose a Season 18 winner, fans can see a host of AGT talent live at MGM Resorts’ iconic Luxor Hotel & Casino — right in the heart of Las Vegas — as part of a variety show residency for fans everywhere.

Here’s everything you need to know:

What is Superstars Live in Las Vegas?

America’s Got Talent presents Superstars Live, a 75-minute live show on the world-famous Las Vegas strip, described by the Luxor as a “fast-paced, high action variety show” featuring “show-stopping moments” by past AGT winners and finalists.

“Showgoers will be treated to an over-the-top opening number, setting the tone for an immersive spectacle that never lets up,” according to the hotel’s website.

Superstars Live has nightly showings on Thursdays and Fridays, with double features on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Who can you find at the AGT live show?

Superstars Live has an impressive lineup of guests familiar to AGT fans. The show varies every week, much of it depending on the Acts’ personal schedules, though audiences can expect nothing less than jaw-dropping entertainment.

On the Luxor website, a promotional video shows AGT Season 12 Golden Buzzer favorite Light Balance, with the Ukrainian kids’ group of dancers in hypnotizing glow lights (they later returned for America’s Got Talent: The Champions in 2019). The singer and pianist Kodi Lee, who swept the AGT Season 14 competition and returned for America’s Got Talent: All-Stars earlier this year, is another one of the show’s highlights.

The Pack Drumline from AGT Season 17 frequently appears on Superstars Live, per their social media and website, headlining up to five nights a week. They want to leave “a long-lasting impression on the Las Vegas strip,” one of the members, Perry Donta’e, told Las Vegas Magazine.

“We want to make ourselves known as a staple in the Las Vegas city, culture, and community,” said Donta’e. “By striving to continuously evolve our performance and increase our network with other talented artists and management teams, we know we can turn our brand into a household name here in Vegas.”

The Pack Drumline isn’t the only group going the extra mile. The shadow-play group Silhouettes and the water-spitting Human Fountains also frequently headline at The Luxor.

Another mind-blowing must-see is the Virginia-raised aerialist Aidan Bryant, who placed second in AGT Season 16 and later won AGT: All-Stars.

The Human Fountains spit water out of their mouths onstage.

“This opportunity only comes once in a lifetime,” Bryant told Las Vegas Magazine about joining Superstars Live. “I’m going to put my best foot forward and to wow the crowd every time I step on that stage.”

According to the local magazine, other Superstars Live performers have included magician Mervant Vera, knife-throwing duo Deadly Games, trapeze artists Duo Transcend, and opera-singing ventriloquist Celia Muñoz.

Stand-up comedian Mike E. Winfield was named host of Superstars Live, with fellow AGT talent Preacher Lawson, Vicki Barbolak, Jon Dorenbos, and Peter Antoniou hosting in previous years.

Of course, the aforementioned acts aren’t the only AGT talent audiences might see, given Superstars Live’s ever-changing lineup. According to the hotel website, the show features a bunch of fresh material, too.

“With such a vast portfolio of talent to draw from, America’s Got Talent presents Superstars Live will regularly introduce new acts as well as welcome limited-engagement special guests,” the website states. “All Stars. All Variety. All Vegas!”

Superstars Live tickets start at $49. Anyone interested in attending the live event can also add the V.I.P. Experience, which includes premium seating, a red-carpet photo op, and a chance to sit in (a replica) of the Judges’ seats. Meet-and-greets with some of the talent, souvenirs, and early access to the V.I.P. room are also some of the perks of the V.I.P. Experience add-on.

AGT Season 18 continues, and soon, a winner will be revealed, adding to the star-studded Superstars Live lineup.

Watch America’s Got Talent on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8/7c on NBC and the next day on Peacock.
