Got Talent is a British talent show television format conceived and owned by Simon Cowells SYCOtv company. A pilot was made in the United Kingdom in 2005, hosted by Paul OGrady, but after OGradys split with ITV, the series was postponed, resulting in NBCs Americas Got Talent – the first full series of the format.It has spawned spin-offs in over 58 countries (as of April 2014), in what is now referred to as the Got Talent format,[1] similar to that described by FremantleMedia of the Idol and The X Factor formats. Unlike those shows, Got Talent showcases several artistic disciplines in addition to singing. In April 2014, the format was named the worlds most successful reality TV format ever by the Guinness World Records.
