America's Got Talent season premiere Tuesday June 17 at 9/8c on NBC.

"America's Got Talent," NBC's hit summer series from "American Idol" producers FremantleMedia North America and Simon Cowell's SYCO Television, returns this summer with the hottest performers from across the country ready to compete in the blockbuster reality show's third season.

With the talent search open to acts of all ages, "America's Got Talent," hosted by Jerry Springer and presided over by celebrity judges David Hasselhoff, Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne, has brought the variety format back to the forefront of American culture by showcasing performers from across the country. Each week, the show features a colorful array of hopeful stars, including singers, dancers, comedians, contortionists, impressionists, jugglers, magicians and ventriloquists, all vying for their chance to strut and perform on stage in the hopes they'll win the viewing audiences' votes.

The third season kicks off with audition episodes shot on location in theaters across the nation, including a "virtual audition city" on MySpace, with the judges selecting the best acts who will advance to the Vegas Callbacks. The acts that make it through the Vegas Callbacks will then move on to the live semi-final performance episodes where the American viewing audience will vote for their favorites each week. The series culminates with a live finale where one act will walk away with a million-dollar prize.

Terry Fator, a ventriloquist from Dallas, Texas, had his life changed forever last August when he was crowned the second season champion. Not only did he win the million-dollar grand prize, but his lifelong dream to headline on the Las Vegas strip came true when he signed a contract with the Las Vegas Hilton in a deal worth more than 1.5 million dollars.

"America's Got Talent" is produced by FremantleMedia North America and Simon Cowell's SYCO Television. Cowell, Cecile Frot-Coutaz ("American Idol"), Georgie Hurford-Jones ("Britain's Got Talent"), Jason Raff ("Clash of the Choirs") and James Sunderland ("Dancing on Ice") are executive producers.

America's Got Talent

by TV Guide News

Episode recap: Auditions, Week Three

Piers, Sharon, The Hoff and Jerry embark on week three of scouring the country looking for the USA's best talent.

Remember, the contestants who get the nod move on to Vegas. The ultimate winner collects $1 million and a Vegas contract.

This week we start in Dallas (where, by the way, ventriloquist Terry Fator was discovered last year).

Corky Duke - does some kind of cowboy contortionist routine. Three quick X's. But, you know what? He can kick kind of high.

The Rodeo Rhythm Kings - Three cowboys (oh, right, we're in Dallas) playing the violin, bass and geetar. They also tried to harmonize. X-X-X.

Then a quick series of rejected acts: a guy jumping off a horse, a woman trying to catch hula hoops,a guy snapping and clapping his fingers.

The judges and the Springer-ized energetic audience appear to have seen enough.

Holly Hardin - She nahn-TAY-in (19). Sings These Boots Are Made For Walking and the audience is buying it. No X's, but Sharon is not in love with her singing. Piers likes her, but she's got Sharon and The Hoff perplexed, and they leave her hanging. After the break, Sharon reiterates, "you have such a nice personality" (Sharon apparently has been on the dating circuit lately) and Piers gives a second shot to sing something
