As America’s Got Talent began taping audition episodes last week, the judges have begun posting from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California where the show typically films.

The entire gang is returning for the upcoming America’s Got Talent season 18, including Sofia Vergara who didn’t participate in the America’s Got Talent winter offshoot, All-Stars, which finished it’s 8 week run last month. Only Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel sat on the panel for that show, which crowned aerialist Aidan Bryant, while Terry Crews hosted.

The summer perennial, which has aired on NBC since 2006, does not have an official 2023 premiere date yet, but it usually begins the last Tuesday of May after The Voice finishes its run.
