In a Monday teleconference with reporters, producer Simon Cowell revealed that a big tweak for the new round of America's Got Talent is that in order to level the playing field a bit, nonsingers will be sent to a mid-season "boot camp." "For a two-week period, we'll bring in experts ? vocal coaches, stylists, people from Vegas ? to work with these acts and find out how good they really are," he explains. Season 1's 12-year-old champ, Bianca Ryan, has signed a deal with Cowell's recording label and has her first album due out Nov. 14.
