The Judge Cuts of Season 14 of America's Got Talent aired through July 16, 2019 to August 6, 2019. A total of 72 acts will perform. 28 acts, along with 5 Golden Buzzer acts from the auditions and three wild card acts, will proceed to the Quarterfinals, and 40 acts will be rejected.


The Judge Cuts round returned for its fifth year.

Serving as the middle round between the auditions and the live shows, 72 acts were pulled from the 100+ acts that were accepted by the judges in the Auditions. The Judge Cuts took place over four days; each day, 18 acts performed with only 7 moving on to the Quarterfinals.

Joining the main judging panel were four guest judges. While each regular judge was given a normal buzzer, each guest had only a Golden Buzzer he or she could press to send an act to the live shows without further deliberation as one of the 7 acts.
