America's Got Talent: Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Nick Cannon All Returning for Season 11

Simon Cowell will be the only new kid on the block when America’s Got Talent returns this summer.

NBC confirmed on Tuesday that Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum will all return to the judges’ table — alongside the erstwhile American Idol fave and Got Talent creator, who’s replacing Howard Stern — for Season 11.

Additionally, host Nick Cannon will again play the role of emcee as AGT returns to Los Angeles for its live performance and results shows.

“Without sounding too arrogant I am going to call us the Fantastic Four,” said Cowell, in a release. “I like this panel because they are slightly nuts. And now let’s find a star.”

Klum and Mel B are returning as judges for their fourth seasons. Mandel will be entering his seventh.

    Glad Judges are staying on the show. Excited to see new season with Simon as new judge!

    I was hoping Simon would clean house when it came to the judging panel. Can’t stand those three. Oh well. Hopefully Simon liven things up and brings his needed snarkiness to this season.

  5. I thought he’d push Mel B out like he did to her on The X Factor. Glad she’s staying.

  10. Ron says:

    Sooooo…. Literally no judges on America’s Got Talent are actually American?!?!

  11. Annie says:

    OH how wonderful! I love the chemistry they all have and they really are great judges. Its a shame that Nick hasn’t won an Emmy yet for his hosting, cause he’s stellar at it.

  12. So once again, America’s Got Talent, but America Ain’t Got Judges. Not one US citizen on the panel.

    Simon is Piers in steroids. Not a good decision in my opinion.

  14. Diane Kerner says:

    So glad I can watch Americas Got Talent again after many years. I missed the show so much as it was my favorite night time show. I couldn’t watch because Howard Stern was on the show. Very bad choice.
