But according to Cannon, there’s even more in store.
âThere are so many twists and turns this season that help adapt to the phenomenal talent of these people that they can show they’ve never shown before,â said Cannon. “So there will be some great performances that I guarantee that have never been on TV before.”
The former âWild ‘N Outâ and âAmerica’s Got Talentâ host also revealed that the season will feature âDiva Battlesâ.
“There are going to be diva fights. I’ll just give this to you,” Cannon teased shyly. “It’s the only thing I can reveal.”
