When “America’s Got Talent” returns this summer for its 14th season, it will be with a new host and two new faces on the judging panel.
As Variety reports, Terry Crews will join the show as its new host, replacing Tyra Banks (who joined in 2017 to replace Nick Cannon). The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star is a natural choice, given that he’s currently hosting the special “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” edition.
On the judging panel, Heidi Klum and Mel B. will be following Banks out the door, with their spots to be filled by actress Gabrielle Union and former “Dancing With the Stars” pro Julianne Hough.
Simon Cowell (who is also the show’s creator, and replaced Howard Stern as judge in 2015) will return, as will longtime judge Howie Mandel, who joined the show in season 5.
“Our millions of longtime viewers have already embraced Terry as the host of ‘AGT: The Champions’, and we are excited to welcome Gabrielle and Julianne to the ‘AGT’ family,” said Trish Kinane, president of entertainment programming for Fremantle North America. “They are ready to bring a new level of expertise, energy, entertainment, and fun to our judging panel.”
