AMERICA'S GOT TALENT Reveals the 36 Acts Headed to the Live Shows

"America's Got Talent," summer's #1-rated and most-watched show, has revealed its top 36 acts, including three previously eliminated acts, brought back as "wild cards."

These talented performers are headed to the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood to perform live for America's vote beginning Tuesday, Aug. 14 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT) as they vie for the $1 million grand prize and a headline show at the Paris Theater at Paris Las Vegas Nov. 2-4.

On Tuesday, the first 12 acts of the top 36 will take the stage to perform for judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and host Tyra Banks. Viewers will be able to choose their favorite act by phone, on NBC.com, and via the AGT app (available on the App Store and Google Play). New this season Xfinity X1 customers will be able to vote via their set-top box during the live broadcast of the show by saying "Vote for AGT" into the X1 voice remote or by pressing the remote's Info button.

Fans will also have the chance to save an act in jeopardy each week during the Wednesday results show via the Dunkin Save.

The results show on Wednesday, Aug. 15 (8-9 p.m. ET/PT) will feature a performance by last season's winner, Darci Lynne Farmer. The young singer/ventriloquist dazzled "AGT" audiences with her charming performances and undeniable talent. Farmer received the most votes ever for a winning act and sold out her four Las Vegas shows immediately following her win. Since last fall, she has been touring the country with her puppet partners Oscar and Petunia.

The top 36 acts of season 13 include:
