A day after Howard Stern said he would return to the show, NBC announced that fellow judges Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel are also in for Season 9. Nick Cannon will also be back as host, a role he's held for the past five seasons.
"Howard, Heidi, Mel and Howie have proven that they are a dynamic quartet of judges who aren't afraid to share their opinions, while at the same time creating fireworks of their own," says Paul Telegdy, head of alternative programming at NBC. "Along with Nick serving as an incomparable host, our talent on 'Talent' is among the finest on all of television."
Auditions for Season 9 of "Agt" are underway. The show will be back on NBC in the summer.
