Nick Cannon also set to come back as host
The “America's Got Talent” judges’ panel is remaining intact.
“AGT” judges Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel will be returning to the NBC reality competition, the network said Wednesday, following the news Tuesday that Howard Stern had also re-upped for the show's upcoming ninth season.
Nick Cannon will also return as host.
NBC's president of alternative and late-night programming Paul Telegdy made the announcement, calling Stern and crew “a dynamic quartet.”
“Howard, Heidi, Mel and Howie have proven that they are a dynamic quartet of judges who aren’t afraid to share their opinions, while at the same time creating fireworks of their own,” Telegdy said. “Along with Nick serving as an incomparable host, our talent on ‘Talent’ is among the finest on all of television.”
Stern signed on for the series in 2012, while Klum and Mel B came aboard last season.
Auditions for the upcoming season are currently underway.
