NBC's talent competition, hosted by Nick Cannon, differs from its counterparts, "American Idol" and "The X Factor," in that it includes not only singers, but a wider range of talents. Like the other shows, "America's Got Talent" does engage in product placement and brand integration.
The show features an Orville Redenbacher Lounge for contestants, text-in voting available only through AT&T, and even a segment with the Smurfs interacting with Cannon and the contestants.
These are among only a few instances of product placement that range from subtle to scripted segments featuring items from the show's sponsors, including Blackberry, MySpace, and Twitter.
