'America's Got Talent': Annoyed fans dub Top 15 Golden Buzzer auditions special episode as 'glorified rerun'
'AGT' fans had a myriad of feelings about the special Golden Buzzer episode that was aired instead of the auditions episode
'America's Got Talent' fans eagerly tuned in to watch another week of season 17 auditions, but were instead met with a Golden Buzzer Special episode. The special episode which was filmed in London featured judge Simon Cowell and host Terry Crews sitting down and watching the top 15 Golden Buzzer auditions of all time, since they were first introduced to the show in 2015.
As Simon ran through his list of the 15 of his all-time favorite Golden Buzzer auditions, fans had mixed feelings about it. While some fans were happy to see their favorite performers such as Grace VanderWaal, Waffle dance crew, etc, in action, others were, however, disappointed since there was no new episode. Fans took to Twitter to express their two cents on the special episode.
A disappointed fan tweeted, "It’s a filler episode tonight #AGT." "WTF this ain't a new regular show ? #AGT,#AmericasGotTalent," wrote a fan. "Wait, basically what I'm seeing on here is a major recap of golden buzzers? I wanted to see some new talent here. #AGT," commented a fan. "Is this a clip show but not a real one? #AGT," wondered a fan. "Just reminding everyone tonights #agt is a Glorified Rerun," added a fan.

Some fans felt that the show should have included a "where are they now" segment alongside a recap of the Top 15 Golden Buzzer moments. A fan expressed, "Like Simons Golden Buzzer favorites but I wish it included a where are they now section.#AGT." "I’d like to see an #AGT Golden Buzzer “where are they now?” Not for the ones that went huge, like Susan Boyle. But the ones whose names aren’t in lights," suggested a fan.
