This weekend Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions will be airing on ITV, and we’re definitely excited to see what some familiar faces bring to the table! Yet, for the sake of this article, we’re looking to spotlight all of the America’s Got Talent alum who are taking part — as there are a few notable names that you may want to keep your eyes peeled for if you’re planning to watch clips of the show in the United States. Or, if you’re in the UK, consider this your primer of a few of our stateside acts.

Alex Magala – Sword swallower. He’s appeared on America’s Got Talent (and America’s Got Talent: The Champions), but also a number of other shows across the franchise.
Ashleigh & Sully – These two debuted on AGT: The Champions earlier this year, as Ashleigh originally performed with her late dog Pudsey on Britain’s Got Talent years ago.
Bello and Annaliese Nock – One of the most intriguing additions, mostly because Bello and her daughter never performed together in their time on AGT.
Billy & Emily England – While the roller-skating duo has appeared on both the original AGT and The Champions, they actually performed first on Britain’s Got Talent.
Cristina Ramos – The Spanish singer made it to the finals on America’s Got Talent: The Champions.
Darcy Oake – The magician (originally from Canada) appeared on both AGT: The Champions and also Britain’s Got Talent.
Deadly Games – The knife-throwing act has done both AGT and The Champions, and even received Heidi Klum’s Golden Buzzer following their performance there!
DJ Arch Jr – Originally he was on the South African version, but the young DJ appeared on AGT: The Champions, as well.
Kseniya Simonova – She’s appeared in multiple editions of the franchise, but finished third in America’s Got Talent: The Champions.
Paul Potts – While he did appear on America’s Got Talent: The Champions, he’ll always be remembered as one of the most notable Britain’s Got Talent stars ever.
Paul Zerdin – He’s the only America’s Got Talent winner on this list, and he’s a stellar one!
The Sacred Riana – The scary magician found success in Asia, and as a participant on America’s Got Talent last year.
Preacher Lawson – Despite doing very well on both the regular and Champions versions of AGT, he hasn’t captured the title!
Tape Face – We’re honestly surprised that BGT: The Champions was able to get the famous mime, given that he has been very busy with a show in Las Vegas.
Vicki Barbolak – Following her time on AGT last summer and also Champions, this marks her third franchise appearance in the past year and a half. She’s bringing her “trailer nasty” persona across the pond!
Here’s the bummer with this show in the UK — this is a good chunk of their contestant pool, and the majority of the contestants we’ve mentioned here were on America’s Got Talent: The Champions earlier this year. The Sacred Riana and Bello and Annaliese Nock are really the only exceptions. What makes this show different?
