America’s Got Talent returns to NBC for a 13th season this summer. And the entire cast is also returning, including host Tyra Banks and judges Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Mel B. and Heidi Klum.

Audition episode tapings are booking NOW over at OnCameraAudiences, for sessions kicking off on March 6 in Los Angeles.
There was some gossip about Mel B, amid a messy divorce, maybe not returning to the show. But that turned out to be the usual click-baity goss. It’s good news, because the judges panel has good chemistry. I have to admit though, I would have been OK with Tyra Banks not returning. She is surprisingly awkward hosting live TV.
Twelve year old singing ventriloquist, Darci Lynne, is the reigning AGT champ. She presided over a season that regularly earned No 1 ratings, making America’s Got Talent a true summer smash for NBC.
