In the premiere episode of the 'America's Got Talent' spin-off, 10 acts perform in front of the judges, including Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Mel B, as they're vying for a spot in Semi-Finals.

AceShowbiz - A new "America's Got Talent" spin-off officially kicked off its season 1 on the first day in 2024. In the "America's Got Talent: Fantasy League" premiere episode, 10 acts performed in front of the judges, including Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Mel B (Melanie Brown), as they're vying for a spot in Semi-Finals.

The new series saw each of the judges assembling a dream team which consisted of 10 acts with them serving as the mentor of their team. The first episode featured singer Kodi Lee and variety act Billy and Emily England from Simon's team, as well as magician Jon Dorenbos, singer Maria Seiren and comedian Tape Face from Mel B's team.

They were joined by pole dancer Kristy Sellars, sand artist Kseniya Simonova, dance/acrobatic group V.Unbeatable and variety act Shadow Ace from Howie's team. Meanwhile, Heidi sent out variety act Hans for the first episode. At the end of the night, Mel B would hit the Golden's Buzzer which could be used to send one of her own acts to the Finale or steal an act from another team.

The first performer was Kristy, who came in second to the Mayyas in "America's Got Talent" season 17. She incorporated a multimedia show for her performance and Simon was impressed. "You do something completely different…the best one we've ever seen," he gushed. Mel B added, "You took us on an intense journey."

Following it up was Jon, who showcased his magic at the judges table. He brought his cards before handing them out to the judges. He then successfully found specific cards that the judges got even after they shuffled them up. Howie thought Jon was "truly a champion," while Mel called him "incredible."

As for comedian Hans, he took the stage to hilariously play the "German superstar" before singing out of tune of Elton John's classic "B***h is Back". Mel B found Hans' performance funny, telling him that he "brings so much joy to the stage." Sand artist Kseniya followed it up, bringing an emotional story about the relationship between a mother and son. While Simon loved the performance, Mel B pointed out that she missed something.

Later, V.Unbeatable hit the stage to offer a spectacular performance involving full blown scooters, who flew around and tumbled dangerously as they glided across the screen. Heidi raved, "You are the Unbeatable!" Simon agreed, noting that the dance/acrobatic group was "world class."

Maria performed next. The winner of "Japan's Got Talent" flaunted her opera singing skills by belting out "Nessun Dorma". Simon admitted that he was surprised by the performance and that he liked the song choice. Howie, however, begged to differ as he said that the act wasn't so great.

Danger acrobats Billy & Emily England were up next. During their performance, Billy was seen skating while swinging Emily around so close to the ground as he spun. The two concluded their performance with flaming knives attached to their skates. Mel B said it was spectacular, while Howie dubbed it dangerous and outstanding.

Top Face opened his performance with a clever dancing puppet bit before he asked Simon to join him onstage. However, everyone was confused as he didn't do a trick that actually involved the judge. Shadow Ace performed later and invited Howie to the stage as he and his puppets performed "Baby's Got Back" and "Hot in Herr" while using Howie's bald head as a prop. The judges loved it as Simon called Shadow Ace "genius."

Kodi Lee returned to the stage with another empowering song. Heidi noted that she loved the blind and autistic artist's new vibe, while Howie shared that he would love to steal Kodi from Simon's team.

It was time to reveal the five acts who advanced to the next round. The first act moving on was V.Unbeatable, who was later joined by Kodi Lee. Terry Crews then named Shadow Ace as the third act to go to the Semi-Finals. Kseniya Simonova and Kristy Sellers were later revealed to be the fourth and the fifth acts advancing that night.

As for the Golden Buzzer, Mel B decided to use it to steal an act from another team. The Spice Girls star hit the button to get Billy and Emily England on her team and send them directly to the Finals.
