America’s Got Talent, and its global franchise has helped more than a thousand talented individuals achieve their dreams and have been the stepping stone of some of the celebrities that we have right now. The success of the show, of course, can be credited from its front liners – those people who stand in front of the camera as judges or hosts.
For the last few seasons of the show, Simon Cowell leads the judges for the show that includes Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mendel. The show was also hosted by Top Model Tyra Banks.
A recent report from Variety had shocked the world when Simon Cowell allegedly fired Mel B, Heidi Kulm, and Tyra Banks from the show leaving him and Howie Mandel as the only remaining judge. According to the report, the new judges will be Julianne Hough and Gabrielle Union.
Furthermore, the NBC reality TV show will also have a new host in Terry Crews replacing the Top Model herself.
Meridith Ahr, President of alternative and reality at NBC Entertainment, told Variety:
“One of the many secrets to the success and longevity of America’s Got Talent is its fearless drive to reinvent itself.”
“The next evolution of the format brings in fresh expert eyes to join Simon and Howie on the panel.”
“Gabrielle and Julianne are two of the most aspirational women in the business, on top of being electric entertainers with talent across disciplines.”
“I am excited to see how their knowledge, compassion and sheer joy enhance the experience for acts and viewers alike. As their partner in crime, host Terry Crews will continue to light up the stage with his quick wit and unending charm.”
It is not new for the franchise to change their judges every season or two. David Hasselhoff, Piers Morgan, Howard Stern, Brandy Norwood, and Sharon Osbourne were some of the judges who left the show. Furthermore, presenters and host have also changed throughout the 14 seasons that it has been aired. Tyra Banks replaced Nick Cannon, the longest-running host of the show, in 2016 at Season 12.
For all of us watching the renowned TV show, is it a Yes or is it a No?
