Trivia: America's Got Talent

  • Executive Meddling: A couple times, when the judges believed an act made a bad song choice, the performers mention that producers influenced that decision (Arcadian Broad in Season 4 with a High School Musical number, the Fiddleheads doing "Billie Jean" in Season 6).
  • Hey, It's That Act!: Quite a few acts appeared previously on other talent shows, including:
    • Kelli Glover from American Idol
    • Alice Tan Ridley, At Last, and Sideswipe, among others, from the short-lived FOX series 30 Seconds to Fame.
    • Strikers All-Stars, Ring Masters, and Status Quo (as SQ Entertainment) from America's Best Dance Crew
    • Also works in the reverse with AGT acts appearing on other shows — most notably Jabbawockeez on America's Best Dance Crew. One of the guys from Sideswipe also later landed a starring role in Kamen Rider Dragon Knight.
    • Professor Splash appeared in one of the clips on an episode of The Smoking Gun Presents World's Dumbest Daredevils and Busty Heart appeared on Would's Dumbest Performers.
      • Busty Heart had previously appeared on The Man Show, years before.
  • Real-Life Relative: Nick Cannon's wife Mariah Carey did a guest performance during Season 4's finals.
