America's Got Talent will have a very familiar look to it next summer:
NBC announced yesterday that all four judges from Season 8 - Heidi Klum, Melanie Brown, Howard Stern and Howie Mandel - will return to the panel on Season 9.
"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," Paul Telegdy, NBC's alternative programming head, said in a statement. "Along with Nick serving as an incomparable host, our talent onTalent is among the finest on all of television."
Auditions for new episodes are already underway, with contestants hoping to follow in the winning footsteps of Kenichi Ebina.
That dancer took home the top prize on Season 8.
