Wondering if Simon Cowell will be returning as a judge for Season 16 of America’s Got Talent? Cowell had to take some time off from the show after injuring his back in an electric bicycle accident last August. Several guest hosts filled in for the Idol judge while he was recovering from surgery.
AGT fans no longer need to wonder as NBC announced that Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, and Sofia Vergara will all be returning for season 16. Host Terry Crews is also slated to return when the new season airs this summer.
Crews dropped by Twitter to post a picture of the group announcing, “WE’RE BACK!” while also hyping one last chance to audition for season 16.
