AGT is one of the rare talent competitions to have any consistency. Every member of last year’s judging panel will return, including Howard Stern, who announced the news before NBC made it official. The other members of the judging panel are Howie Mandel, model Heidi Klum and former Spice Girls singer Mel B. Klum and Mel B were called in to replace Sharon Osbourne. Nick Cannon hosts the show.

“I am very excited to be going back to America's Got Talent,” Stern said on his radio show in November. “I will go back [for] one more season.”

The open auditions have already taken place, but you can still submit audition tapes online.
