“America’s Got Talent” will be visited by a lineup of celebrity guest judges in the coming weeks, including musician Brad Paisley and former “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno.

Paisley will be the first to join the regular judges panel — made up of Simon Cowell, Gabrielle Union, Julianne Hough and Howie Mandel — on the July 16 installment of the NBC talent competition show.

NBA star Dwyane Wade joins his wife, Gabrielle Union, on July 23, followed by “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” star Ellie Kemper on July 30 and Leno on Aug. 6.

The guest judges will sit through four weeks of the show’s “middle rounds,” armed with their own Golden Buzzers and the power to send an act they like straight to the live shows, which will begin on Aug. 13.

Any act sent through to the live shows will join the five which have already been awarded Golden Buzzers by one of the judges or host Terry Crews — The Detroit Youth Choir, violinist Tyler Butler-Figueroa, singers Luke Islam, Joseph Allen and Kodi Lee.
