Set your DVRs to fun because America's Got Talent is back and ready for action! Season 9 of the NBC series officially kicked off last Tuesday with a two-hour premiere and if that was any indication of what's ahead, this season is going to be nuts. 

In case you missed it, here's a small sampling what went down last week: First, host Nick Cannon dressed up as a mime and royally pranked the AGT judges. Like, honestly, he even had us, seasoned reality TV viewers that we are, scratching our heads wondering if that mime could really be going off like that on national television.

Second, the viewers loved it! The show debuted with the night's high numbers. True, it wasn't anything to write home about if you're looking at previous years but still, nothing to sneeze at either!

Tonight we can only imagine Nick and Crew (that's Heidi Klum, Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, and Mel B, in case you forgot) have even more up their respective sparkly sleeves as we continue with Season 9 auditions. Tune in tonight at 8 p.m. for the latest two-hour installment. Oh, and if you want to really wow the folks you're watching with, read up on our full list of past winners so you can drop AGT trivia like a boss.
