"America's Got Talent," NBC's top-rated summer series from "American Idol" producers FremantleMedia North America and Simon Cowell's SYCO Television, returns for a sixth season this summer.

With the talent search open to acts of all ages, "America's Got Talent" has brought the variety format back to the forefront of American culture by showcasing performers from across the country. The series is a true celebration of the American spirit, featuring a colorful array of hopeful stars, including singers, dancers, comedians, contortionists, impressionists, jugglers, magicians and ventriloquists, all vying for their chance to strut and perform on stage hoping to win America's hearts - and the $1 million prize.

Singer/songwriter Michael Grimm was stunned and overwhelmed when he was crowned the winner of season five in front of a live nationwide audience. Grimm, who also took home the show's $1 million award, headlined the "America's Got Talent Live" show in Las Vegas last October.

FremantleMedia North America and SYCO Television produce "America's Got Talent". Cowell, Cecile Frot-Coutaz ("American Idol"), Jason Raff, Ken Warwick ("American Idol") and Georgie Hurford-Jones are executive producers.
