Below is the synopsis of "America's Got Talent," per Rotten Tomatoes.

A talent search from the producers of `American Idol' features a variety of acts (singers, dancers, comedians, acrobats, jugglers and more) competing for fame and a million-dollar prize.

The long-running "AGT" now has 14 seasons under its belt, and a new spin-off premiered in January 2019 called "America's Got Talent: The Champions." Just watch a clip of best moments below and you'll see what we mean when we say these acts always shock and entertain.

On "The Masked Singer," performers sing in disguise, and judges and fans try to guess who is behind the voice. Viewers are intrigued by the new series, which premiered in January 2019, and it is still going strong in its second season. Per the Ringer's Rob Harvilla:

Welcome to Fox’s The Masked Singer, the strangest and most discomfiting reality-TV singing competition ever born. It is American Idol via Black Mirror; it is Eurovision via David Cronenberg. It is inspired by the 3-year-old South Korean program King of Mask Singer despite being nowhere near as weird or (presumably) as good. It is somehow both extremely self-aware and still not nearly self-aware enough. It is, impressively, all sorts of fucked up. “True strength comes from embracing all your vulnerability,” says the mystery celebrity wearing a garish, gold, full-body lion costume and speaking through a voice-modulation device, shortly before singing Fergie’s “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody.” Not yet, Fergie.
