How America's Got Talent is working amid the coronavirus lockdown
According to Entertainment Weekly, the talent show must go on — even if it means judging singers, dancers, jugglers, and comics via Zoom.
When season 15 of America’s Got Talent returns in May, judges will accept submissions from performers who are sheltered at home due to the coronavirus pandemic. Though the NBC show was able to film audition rounds earlier this spring at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, it will still consider acts from those stuck in lockdown.
"We're all in new territory," says Cowell. "We've never done this before. We're at home doing this, so I love trying things for the first time”.
Simon Cowell has shared a glimpse of America's Got Talent much-anticipated new series, with one of the show's most inspiring auditions yet, Daily Mail reported.
Wrongful imprisoned Archie Williams "rises from ashes" and shocks audience with his incredible voice
The judge tweeted a clip of singer Archie Williams, who was wrongfully imprisoned for 37 years after a woman was stabbed and raped in her home in 1982.

He said: “I knew I was innocent, I didn’t commit a crime but being a poor black kid, i didn’t have the ability to fight the state of Louisiana”. Despite having no fingerprints at the crime scene, and three different people testifying that he was home at the time of the murder, he was sentenced to life without the option of parole.

He told Terry: “Freedom is of the mind, I went to prison but I never let my mind go to prison”. Thanks to DNA evidence and The Innocence project, Archie was finally released in March 2019, and mere months later he could finally audition for the show.
The judges unanimously voted to send Archie through to the next round, earning a delighted reaction from his loved ones.
