Three engaging new episodes of NBC's hit comedy/variety series 'Little Big Shots' will feature an incredible lineup of amazing kids in fun, feel-good episodes airing Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on April 3, 10 and 24.

Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey are executive producers of the popular series, with Harvey hosting and going toe-to-toe with the kids in hilarious interviews and conversations.

Averaging a 2.7 rating, 9 share in adults 18-49 and 14.1 million viewers overall in "live plus same day" ratings from Nielsen Media Research through its first two weeks, "Little Big Shots" is the most-watched new series of the season on the "Big 4" networks and the No. 7 primetime series on those networks overall. The show's March 13 regular-slot premiere was NBC's most-watched regular Sunday entertainment program since March 2005.

Kicking off the month in the April 3 episode is an adorable 3-year-old mayor named James (Dorset, Minnesota) and talented string performers making up Joyous Quintet (Long Island), as well as a spunky, 5-year-old singer and dancer (Hidden Hills, California) and a sibling magician act (Branson, Missouri). Also featured is U.K. teen singing sensation Toby Randall, who grew to fame on Vine and YouTube when he started recording covers of hit songs from his bedroom and has now racked up in excess of 200 million online views.

An 11-year-old fiddler (Piney Flats, Tennessee) and a 14-year-old Motown performer and Broadway star named Nathaniel (San Antonio) are just two of the impressive acts showcased in the April 10 episode of "Little Big Shots." Also featured are a 5-year-old math whiz (Wahiawa, Hawaii), a 13-year-old martial arts world champion (Valencia, California), lively Irish dancers (Burbank, California) and a 6-year-old girl (Carrollton, Virginia) who became a viral sensation after declaring to her Mom that she was "moving on" and leaving home to go live with a friend.

On the April 24 "Little Big Shots," a 9-year-old "piano man" (Miami) impresses with his charm and his musical talent, while a 12-year-old yodeler (Branson) tries to teach Harvey to yodel, too. A rock band (San Francisco), an orchestra conductor (Mesa, Arizona) and a 6-year-old hip-hop dancer (Carbondale, Illinois) whose "Whip/Nae Nae" moves went viral are also featured, along with a 9-year-old jazz singer from Norway.
