* {{Ventriloquism}}: A few show up every season. In Season 2, the judges dreaded them and prepared themselves for the worst when they saw Terry Fator... [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome and then he started singing]]. Also notable were Paul Zerdin and Darci Lynne, who won Seasons 10 and 11, respectively.

** Season 12 has ''two'' child performers, singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne, and singer Angelica Hale, who made it all the way to the Top Two, with the former eventually winning.

** Occasionally an act is someone who had one been in the entertainment business, but had to leave for some reason or another, and now they're on AGT to give it another try. One notable example is the Masqueraders in Season 12, a black singing trio who had a hit song during the days of segregation. Their first live show performance was the premiere of a single they had originally planned to release nearly fifty years prior until the Creator/MartinLutherKingJr assassination disrupted recording plans.

** Awesomely subverted when a hypnotist, well, hypnotizes Howie so he temporally thinks that people are wearing gloves, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9dFLXV9hs0 he fearlessly shakes hands with the other judges]].

** The biggest subversion of them all? '''Kenichi Ebina''', the Japanese immigrant who many thought was going to be another train wreck based on the fact that his English was broken and the claim that he didn't dance so much as do "dance-ish" moves. Then his performance began, and his "dance-ish" moves were actually pretty impressive. He got even better in the live shows, where he flawlessly combined his moves with prerecorded footage, and he ultimately '''''won'''''.

Added DiffLines:

* ReclusiveArtist:[[invoked]] Oskar and Gaspar in Season 12. They've never even showed up in person; their act involves videomapping projected on people's bodies, so they design the music and visuals at home and execute the actual performances through proxies.

* DudeNotFunny: In the Season 12 Quarterfinals, Simon compares Demian Aditya's botched act to "Mel B's wedding night" prompting her to throw her drink at Simon and storm off in a rage. At the time Mel B was going through an ugly divorce with producer Stephen Belafonte, whom she has accused of emotional and physical abuse.

* MyGreatestSecondChance: Donald Braswell, who finished fourth in Season 3, got into the Top 40 because a Russian Bar act had to withdraw due to injury. Since then the judges get to make Wild Card picks of previously-eliminated acts to give another try in the semifinals. The Russian Bar Trio would later get their own second chance when they returned to compete in Season 11.

** Subverted with Puddles the Sad Clown in Season 12. He appears on his audition interview in frowning makeup, miming that he has a broken heart. Then he gets on stage... and just '''belts out''' an opera-quality version of [[Music/{{Sia}} Chandelier]]. Then goes right back into Silent and Sad mode when the judges praise his performance.

** UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump to Mel B. So much that she buzzed the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUTtQPMuA1Y Singing Trump]], purely for whom he impersonated.
