NBC’s America’s Got Talent will add guest judges later in the season for its 4 week long Judge Cuts round to determine the 36 acts headed to the live shows. Former judge, Piers Morgan, had hinted about his involvement on twitter yesterday, now the network announces that Michael Buble, Neil Patrick Harris and Marlon Wayans will join the panel each week as a “5th judge.” Read more about the new twist below.


4-Week Long Judge Cuts to Determine the Top 36 Acts to Perform Live for America’s Vote Starting Aug. 11

NEW YORK — May 27, 2015 — Stage and screen star Neil Patrick Harris, Grammy Award winner Michael Bublé, former “America’s Got Talent” star Piers Morgan and actor, comedian and producer Marlon Wayans will serve as guest judges on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” joining judges Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel to determine which 36 acts will move on to the live performance shows at Radio City Music Hall. The four week long Judge Cuts will premiere Tuesday, July 14 (8-10 p.m. ET) and will lead into the live performance shows beginning Tuesday, Aug. 11 (8-10 p.m.).

A Critics’ Choice Television Awards nominee for Best Reality Competition Series, the 10th anniversary season of “America’s Got Talent” airs Tuesdays (8-10 p.m.).

Each week beginning Tuesday, July 14, a guest judge will join the regular panel to help decide which acts have what it takes to perform live for America’s vote. Howard Stern will invite Neil Patrick Harris, Heidi Klum will bring Michael Bublé, Mel B will work with Piers Morgan, and Howie Mandel will call on Marlon Wayans to serve as the fifth judge on the panel. The guest judges will also have an additional advantage: they can use the Golden Buzzer for their favorite act, sending them to Radio City Music Hall without any consultation from the “AGT” judges.

Tickets are available to be part of the Judge Cuts tapings in Bethpage, N.Y. on May 27 and May 29. Visit for tickets and more information.
