** Season 6 had an act called the Miami All-Stars ran by a married couple, a group of very talented dancers. Season 7 would feature the Untouchables, which the married couple from the Miami All-Stars had trained. Now Season 8 has the youngest Untouchable dancer, Ruby, and her partner, ''and'' her brother with ''his'' partner. Both were eliminated very early on in the final cut and the first set of live shows.

** The Russian Bar Trio that had to leave Season 3 due to injury returned in Season 11 to try again.



* 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.

* TheMeanBrit: Piers, although he really will compliment acts that are good more often than Simon does on ''Series/AmericanIdol''. Still, he's the only judge who still made regular use of his buzzer once the competition moved into the popular-vote phase.

** Simon Cowell himself (who's also the franchise's creator) became a judge starting with Season 11. One 13-year-old classical singer named Laura Bretan lampshaded this in her highlight segment, knowing that if you're not good enough, Simon will say so.

Added DiffLines:

** The campiest has to be Leonid the Magnificent from Seasons 1, 2, and 6.


Added DiffLines:

** Definitely worthy of mention is [[CampGay Leonid the Magnificent]]. He auditioned in Season 1 with a unique performance (and in a {{Stripperiffic}} outfit and was rejected. Hasselhoff brought him back, probably just to watch a train wreck. He performed a hula hoop dance wearing a tube thong and a pair of shorts and was again rejected. He returned for Season 2, eliciting an "Oh no" from David. Sharon enjoyed the camp of his act and [[ForTheEvulz Piers put him through just to piss off David.]] He was quite obviously eliminated later. He returned ''again'' in Season 6 with a quick change act (including one behind an "I Love Piers" banner. [[FacePalm Piers' reaction was classic.]] [[FagHag Sharon still loved him.]] Howie was impressed by his ability to change up his act.

* CelebrityResemblance: Dani Shay, the {{Bifauxnen}} 22-year old girl from Season 6 who looks and sings like Music/JustinBieber. She has a good sense of humor about it; her audition was a Beiber parody song poking fun.

** It's been theorized that the only reason that 10-year-old Music/JackieEvancho was the runner-up in Season 5 is that producers felt uncomfortable about having a 10-year-old act in Las Vegas. (Season 1 did not have a Las Vegas deal in its grand prize, allowing 11-year-old Bianca Ryan to win the competetion without any regrets.)

* ButtMonkey: Being the host, poor Nick is the go-to choice whenever an act needs an assistant of some sort. This usually results in him being put in danger or humiliated, sometimes both. Howie lampshades this during a clip show in Season 9, noting Nick has the toughest job on the show and it's to the point a performer just has to ''ask'' him to come on stage for the judges to crack up, because they know what's coming.

* FollowTheLeader: Since the success of Fighting Gravity in Season 5, every year has seen at least one notable group that uses similar light-on-a-darkened-stage effects (Team [=iLuminate=] in Season 6, two or three in Season 7 but Lightwire Theater is the most similar).
** After the success of Kenichi Ebina in Season 8, there have been several more acts that do a similar miming/dancing to video thing.



** Piers in Season 3 said no to Billy Dodson, a man singing female opera, yet on Series/BritainsGotTalent he said yes to another guy who did the same thing.

* JerkAssHasAPoint: Most people do begrudgingly agree with Piers' decision on bad performances.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Piers and Howard are nicer to more talented performers. Likewise, Howard feels guilty when he unintentionally makes a seven-year old rapper cry and Piers will sometimes let hopeless auditionees finish their act.
