'America's Got Talent: The Champions' Season 2 premiered recently, and with just two episodes down, fans say they feel the series has lost the fire it had. 

'America's Got Talent' has been on the air for the past 14 seasons, and its spin-off 'AGT: The Champions' is on its second season. With many a year down the line, fans are now getting bored of the series, calling it out for it blatant bias, affirming that it seems to be a show that is fixed, stale, repetitive and boring compared to all the previous seasons that aired during the early days when the series just began. 

The sudden rise of fans who feel like the show has lost its spark started after Monday night's episode where Simon Cowell stole Howie Mandel's Golden Buzzer and used it on Boogie Storm, who fans claimed didn't deserve the Golden Buzzer. They also shared that though the series has introduced us to some really good talent over the past few seasons, they also feel like most of them are repetitive and that there's not a lot of originality left in the shows. 

Taking to Reddit after Monday night's episode, a fan wrote, "I've been watching the show for like 10 years and I feel like the show just isn’t as good as it used to be. It’s become stale, repetitive, and just boring. It’s so obviously fixed nowadays that the fun is just gone. Does anyone else agree?"

Agreeing, another fan wrote, "All I know is the last two AGT Champions episodes have been worse than the worst episode of any AGT regular season."

"The dancing Storm Troopers is about as stupid as it could get and for Simon to give that the golden buzzer takes away any cred this show has left," a wrote a fan.

While another shared, "I feel this was inevitable. Thers only so many magic or dance routines you can watch. Most of the stuff now its just kinda like meh...seen plenty like this before. Same for the singing, and especially the shadow acts and lights acts... so basically everything... nothing really wows us anymore as it did when we first exposed to these types of acts. Just my opinion, but it was inevitable the show would begin to lose its spark." 

Fans also were quick to add that they nowadays prefer to watch the clips of the acts on YouTube or other social media platforms where they are available rather than sitting through the whole weekly episode.

"Totally agree the more faker the show went the more the hype just blew away, 2-3 years ago would watch but now i just watch tiny youtube clips because its too fake and season last year had a mega drop in ratings so its going to need a real good change in 2020's summer series to get back a lot of old school viewers of the show." 

"I've quit watching it. I'll catch a clip or two on YouTube but the weekly ritual of watching the show with family has gone (they don't really care about the show anymore either)," shared a fan.
