NBC's hit series "Little Big Shots" returns for season two on Sunday, March 5 (8-9 p.m. ET), with a fun, entertaining premiere featuring six talented kids. Steve Harvey hosts the feel-good, family-friendly series, executive produced by Harvey and Ellen DeGeneres, and goes toe-to-toe with them in humorous conversations and interviews.
Viewers will be treated to never-before-seen acts, including everything from a pint-sized cowboy and snail whisperer to a professional animal caller and remarkable young experts in anatomy, geography and even Shakespeare. Adding to the fun will be kids who are gifted in music - ranging from opera to pop to rap, on instruments that include piano, guitar and drums.
"Little Big Shots" will also showcase kids who took the internet by storm with viral videos, guaranteeing lots of comedy and surprises in this engaging series that celebrates phenomenal children from all over the globe. In addition to kids from the U.S., season two will also feature talented tykes from Romania, Costa Rica, Brazil, India, England, Russia, Japan, China, Canada, the Philippines and the Netherlands.
The March 5 season premiere will feature 5-year-old Lucy, who is a huge fan of Abe Lincoln and can recite the Gettysburg Address; charismatic 4-year-old worship leader Caleb; 12-year-old singing sensation Elha from Manila; and 6-year-old science wiz Mason, who enlists Harvey's help with an explosive experiment.
Also looking to "wow" viewers will be 6-year-old basketball phenom and YouTube sensation Jaliyah, who gets a very special surprise on the show; and 4-year-old anatomy expert Brielle, who impresses Harvey with her knowledge of every bone in the human body. Harvey shines a spotlight on their special talents and even participates in some of the acts with the kids.
