"America's Got Talent" Season 9 wrapped up earlier this week on NBC and a new champion was crowned. In the end, it was Mat Franco who survived this season's judges Heidi Klum, Mel B, Howard Stern, and Howie Mandel and eventually won over America's hearts.

"America's Got Talent" Season 10 is set to premiere on May 26, 2015 on NBC. 

"America's Got Talent" is a talent show that features singers, dancers, magicians, comedians, and other performers of all ages competing for the advertised top prize of one million dollars. The show debuted in June 2006 for the summer television season. From season three onwards, the prize includes the one million dollars, payable in a financial annuity over 40 years (or the present cash value of such annuity), and a chance to headline a show on the Las Vegas Strip. Among its significant features is that it gives an opportunity to talented amateurs or unknown performers, with the results decided by an audience vote. 

The original judging panel consisted of David Hasselhoff, Brandy Norwood, and Piers Morgan. Sharon Osbourne replaced Norwood in season two, and Howie Mandel replaced Hasselhoff in season five after his departure. Howard Stern joined the panel in season seven as a replacement for Morgan. Melanie Brown replaced Osbourne in season eight, while Heidi Klum joined as a fourth judge. Regis Philbin was the original host (Season 1 only), followed by Jerry Springer for two seasons, and Nick Cannon has hosted since season four.
