A children’s talent show, Little Big Shots, features Harvey having light-hearted chats with gifted little ones, who exhibit a wide range of talents. NBC says they are “the world’s most talented and extraordinary kids.” Season three acts include a soap bubble artist, pint-sized aerialists, a golf prodigy, and the world’s strongest kid. Also featured are young experts in astronomy, mathematics, and archaeology. There are also musically gifted children, performing everything from pop to opera and country to classical, and on instruments that include the ukulele, drums, piano, more.
