Wild Card

The judges chose the following acts as their two Wild Card picks, allowing them to return to the competition in the Semifinals:


  • Season 15 marks the first time since Season 10 that the live shows were not held at the Dolby Theatre.
  • The Season 15 acts used different parts of the Universal lot for their performances. Those that could not make the trip to California due to travel restrictions performed remotely.
  • It is the first time in series history that the audiences for the live shows are 100% virtual.
  • It is the first time since Season 9 that the Quarterfinals episodes were spread out over 4 weeks instead of the usual 3.
  • It is the first time since Season 10 that an act withdrew prior to the Quarterfinals and had to be replaced.
  • It is the first time in series history that a judge was replaced in the live shows.
  • It is also the first time in series history that the panel consisted of three female judges.
  • This is the first season where every Golden Buzzer act progressed past the Quarterfinals into the Semifinals.
  • Only one act was buzzed in Season 15's quarterfinals and live shows overall tied with Season 9's quarterfinals with the least amount of buzzers ever in the live shows.
