About AGT:

America's Got Talent (also known as AGT) is an American reality television series on the NBC television network, and part of the Got Talent series. The show debuted in June 2006 for the summer television season. Starting in the third season, the Talent top prize included US$1 million, payable in a financial annuity over forty years (or the present cash value of such annuity), and a show as the headliner on the Las Vegas Strip.

Among its significant features were that it gave an opportunity to talented amateurs or unknown performers, with the results decided by an audience vote. The format is a popular one and has often been reworked for television in the United States and the United Kingdom.

The current incarnation was created by Simon Cowell, and was originally due to be a 2005 British series called Paul O'Grady's Got Talent but was postponed due to O'Grady's acrimonious split with broadcaster ITV. As such, the American version became the first full series of the Got Talent franchise.

Despite being heavily involved in the show's production, Simon Cowell does not appear as a judge. This is due to the conditions of his contract with FOX. However he does appear as a judge on Britain's Got Talent.

Fire Walking at Theemidhi

The Theemidhi Fire-walking ceremony is a Hindu festival originating in South India that is celebrated during the month of Aipasi (or Aippasi) of the Tamil calendar. This occurs between the Gregorian calendar months of October and November. The fire-walking ceremony is in honour of Draupati Amman, who is considered the incarnation of Mariamman, and is practiced not only in India, but also in Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa and other countries with large South Indian populations.

In Singapore, the celebrations begin at Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple in Serangoon Road around 2 a.m. and the priest leads the grand procession of people through the streets to Sri Mariamman Temple in South Bridge Road where the actual thimithi takes place. The priest starts the thimithi by walking through the pit filled with hot burning coals with the Karagam (sacred water filled pot) on his head. He is followed by male devotees intent on fulfilling their personal promises and proving their faith. The devotees may include a minority of non-Indians and non-Hindus.
