Everything you need to know to tune into the next season of America's most popular talent competition.

By Elizabeth Logan

America's Got Talent fans, you don't have to wait long for the return of your favorite talent competition series. While it may be a summer show, the franchise held us over with its newest spinoff, America's Got Talent: Fantasy League, in early 2024. And then, yes, AGT as you know and love it will start up again next summer, bringing us new singers, acrobats, dancers and impressionists to root and vote for.

How to Watch

Watch the Season 19 premiere of America’s Got Talent Tuesday, May 28 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock

Will any animal Acts be able to top Season 18 winners Adrian Stoica and his pup Hurricane? Will a puppeteer best Terry Fator, the super-successful AGT champ whose Vegas act has made him a multi-millionaire? We can't wait to see which talented artists come out of the woodwork... maybe it'll be someone you know. Maybe it'll be you!

Who will be the Judges?

Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Terry Crews, Sofía Vergara and Simon Cowell sit at the America's Got Talent Desk for Season 19

The core four will return! Howie Mandel, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara are all set to sit in their usual seats, so barring some extraordinary circumstance, expect to see them.

...unless Mandel permanently defects to The Voice. During the blind auditions, he crashed the show to fangirl over new Coach Reba McEntire and get his I [Heart] Reba shirt signed by the country queen herself. On the one hand, thirsty, but on the other, well, it's Reba!

Terry Crews will also return as Host.
