Looks like Simon Cowell decided to join in on the party!

How to Watch

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

On October 22, Heidi Klum posted a black and white picture of all four of the AGT: Fantasy League Judges behind-the-scenes (BTS) while filming. The best part? Cowell was holding up the camera to take the selfie with Klum, Howie Mandel, and Mel B. by his side.

While Cowell and his fiancé Lauren Silverman are close friends with the rest of the Judges, the executive producer is a bit lower key when it comes to their hangouts, as he wasn't there during Mandel's lavish boat party in September.

"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 lightheartedly said of the situation in an interview with PEOPLE.

All about America's Got Talent: Fantasy League 

Premiering in 2024, America's Got Talent: Fantasy League follows the premise of the original AGT, but comes with a twist. This time, each Judge will have 10 Acts on their team, and the Judge will mentor the acts and work with them closely to train them to take home the winning title. 

In an interview with NBC Insider, Cowell explained how the idea behind AGT: Fantasy League came to be. 

"We don't really get to do much other than Judge. So I thought of the idea of doing a show where we could actually work with the contestants. It would be more interesting than just sitting there," he told us.

Cowell then opened up about his hopes for his group of Acts. "I'm praying I get people I like. You'll see a different side of us, and see if we can't help them make better choices. I don't like losing," he added with a laugh. 

Along with Cowell, also joining AGT: Fantasy League are Klum, Mandel, and Terry Crews. Former Spice Girl Mel B, who was a Judge on AGT from Seasons 8 to 13, will also be making a return. 

According to a recent interview Mel B gave with Extra, she is pumped to be a part of AGT: Fantasy League. “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 the outlet. “I got asked. I thought, ‘Yes, who wouldn’t want to join this show?’”
