How to Watch

Watch America’s Got Talent: Fantasy League on NBC and Peacock.

On October 15, Mandel posted the funniest clip of him and fellow America's Got Talent Judge Heidi Klum, and upcoming AGT: Fantasy League Judge Mel B goofing around behind the scenes. In the video, Mandel jokes that he feels like a "third wheel" to the two ladies before Klum holds up a camera to his face. Howie lets out a surprised chuckle, while Mel B gives the heartiest laugh ever. 

On Klum's Instagram, we see exactly what happened when Klum put the camera near Mandel's face: A bunny ear filter!

Mandel then shared an adorable photo of Klum and Mel B sitting on his lap and smiling. 

This isn't the only time that Mandel has had a fun get together with Klum. On August 20, the model shared some pictures of her hanging out with Mandel and Sofia Vergara before the AGT Season 18 Live Shows. In the picture, they all grab dinner together while sporting big smiles, before we get a closeup of them making silly faces. 

Then, on September 25, Mandel threw a lavish boat party for his AGT fam. "[Mandel] has this gorgeous boat, and he just wanted to just be nice and invite us on. He had an amazing chef there. We were eating yummy sushi. I think he wanted to show off his boat," Klum told People

However, Simon Cowell literally missed the boat, as he wasn't there at the party

"We all made plans. Who does not show up? Simon. We all [were] like, ‘Where the heck is Simon?’ We waited a little bit at the dock and then we left. Maybe he actually did come in the end, and we don't know," Klum added. "I was like, ‘Where were you?’ And he was like, ‘Oh, was that yesterday?’ He fully knows, but he's saying it with a smile on his face."

Premiering in 2024, the spinoff show comes with a twist. This time, the Judges will choose Acts to be on their team, but the results will be determined by an audience vote. Former Spice Girl Mel B, who was an AGT Judge on Seasons 8 through 13, is excited for her return.

“I think I just had been knocking on the door for way too long, they were like, ‘Okay, we will let her in, we will let her back,'" she told Extra. “I got asked. I thought, ‘Yes, who wouldn’t want to join this show?’”

She also touched on her close relationship with Klum. "We’ve never really been apart. We’re always kind of texting each other and sending silly photos and stuff. But to be back with everybody, that’s been quite surreal.”
