America's Got Talent is an NBC staple with 16 action-packed seasons under its belt. Magician Dustin Tavella was crowned the Season 16 victor last September, and fans are eager to learn which Act will win the million-dollar prize next. AGT always attracts a diverse variety of talent, from angelic singers like Victory Brinker to jaw-dropping aerialist Acts like Aidan Bryant. With the AGT Preliminary Auditions ending back in April, fans are even more thrilled to learn who will be appearing in front of the Judges this year. 

Here's everything we know about the new season of AGT.

When did AGT return in 2022?

Tuesday, May 31 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. 

Who are the Judges for AGT in 2022?

Being a Judge for AGT is an exciting gig, and fortunately, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and Howie Mandel are all returning to the table for Season 17. 

As a veteran Judge, Klum explained how her experience on the show continues to surprise her. "We're having the best time," she told Access Hollywood in April. "I always call it a 'rollercoaster of emotions,' because a person comes and they're singing. The next is an aerialist. The next one is a contortionist or a comedian. Everyone has a story to tell because they're real people. They're not actors. This is not a movie. This is real life. It's always fun to hear the stories...it never gets boring." 

Who is hosting AGT in 2022?

Host Terry Crews will be returning to AGT for his fourth season. You can expect Crews' iconic pec-popping and hilarious hype-ups on the horizon. 

What is the Audition process for AGT in 2022?

COVID-19 has impacted the AGT Audition process in recent years, moving initial casting online, with Acts signing up for virtual Auditions. Despite the changes, Season 17 is the first season back with full audiences for Auditions in front of the Judges' table.
