America’s Got Talent is back for Season 16 and the competition is shaping up to be a fierce one following the premiere episode.

Several talented acts ranging from musical performers to stand-up comedians took to the stage in hopes of earning a spot in the next round of the competition. Their fate depends on judges Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Sofia Vergara, and Heidi Klum who use their buzzers to determine who will advance and who will be dismissed from the stage.
