According to The Mirror, Simon said at the weekend: ‘We open America’s Got Talent in Vegas at the Luxor this year. And Vegas and Got Talent is where they want to end up. We agreed to do it, so it happens this year.’

A source told the website: ‘It is no surprise that Simon is taking the next step. He can use his show to promote these stars. An added bonus is that Simon could introduce British acts from BGT.’

It was claimed the multi-million deal will feature twice-weekly shows with the winner of this year’s America’s Got Talent at the forefront.

It was also alleged that if the project proves successful, stars from international versions of the show, including Britain’s Got Talent, could appear.  

A Las Vegas showbiz source also told the website: ‘The market for the AGT acts in Vegas has been successful. So it is no surprise that Simon is taking the next step. 

‘On top of that he can use his show to promote these stars. This could work out really well in the short and long term. And of course an added bonus is that Simon could introduce British acts from BGT there by having them in as special guests.’

This won’t be the first time Got Talent stars have made their way to Las Vegas, Hungarian shadow theatre group Attraction were offered their own show in 2013.

Other iconic BGT stars who have enjoyed international success include Susan Boyle, Paul Potts and dance act Twist and Pulse. 

Magician Shin Lim (who appeared in 2018’s series), singer Michael Grimm (2010) and classical crossover singer Jackie Evancho (2010) are some of the most famous winners of America’s Got Talent, while the likes of Susan, dance group Diversity (both in 2009) and dog-human act Ashleigh and Pudsey (2012) are some of the UK’s biggest successes.
