America’s Got Talent Live! Announces December Date Changes

December 7, 2009 by  

America’s Got Talent Live!, which has ended its successful ten week run at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, has announced a change in show schedules. The live show, hosted by Jerry Springer and featuring million dollar winner, singer Kevin Skinner and runner-up, opera singer Barbara Padilla will return to the CHI Showroom for a week of shows just after Christmas.

The newly announced shows will take place beginning on Saturday, December 26 and will run through Wednesday, December 30.  Show times will be at 6:30 p.m. each night.  Having just completed its fourth hit season on NBC as USA’s highest rated show of the summer with 15.5 million people watching the final and over 18 million tuning in during the final half hour, America’s Got Talent has drawn a great following nation-wide and has been a big hit with families in particular.  The new show schedule has been made, in part, to help accommodate families who want to enjoy the show during the holiday season. 

The live version of the show gives fans a chance to see some of their favorite acts from this season up close and personal.  Joining Springer, Skinner and Padilla in America’s Got Talent Live! at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino are many of the fan favorites from this season including drumming band Recycled Percussion, comedian Grandma Lee, break dancer Hario Torres and singing trio Texas Tenors.  Springer, who has hosted past seasons of the NBC series, and the previous sold out one-off America’s Got Talent Live! event last year in Vegas, acts as master of ceremonies each night.

“We are thrilled to bring America’s Got Talent Live! back for these special shows during the holiday season” said Tom McCartney, president and CEO of Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. “The show has been a great success, especially with families.  We want to give people a few more opportunities to catch their favorite acts.”

Produced by FremantleMedia Enterprises and SYCO in conjunction with Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, America’s Got Talent Live! at Planet Hollywood will run nightly Wednesday through Sunday at 7:00 p.m. through December 6 in the 1,300-seat Chi Showroom at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino and will then return for the limited run December 26 through December 30 with special start times of 6:30 p.m.  Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by visiting and or by calling (702) 785-5055.
