The 14th season of America’s number one on-screen talent show, America's Got Talent, is set to premiere later this year. However, this upcoming season comes with a twist — two beloved judges are leaving the show and will be replaced by two new judges receiving the power of the red "X" and famous golden buzzer.

According to Variety, judges Heidi Klum and Mel B will not be returning to AGT. Both Supermodel Klum and former spice girl Mel B had been judging since season 8, which aired in 2013.

Host and top model Tyra Banks, since 2017, will also not be returning. Although fans were initially disappointed by the news, AGT’s new host and two new judges are guaranteed to bring a fresh and fun vibe to America’s favorite talent show!

Terry Crews has been named the official host of AGT season 14. The comedy actor has already been a hit with AGT’s fan base after hosting an AGT special — America’s Got Talent: The Champions.

Klum and Mel B are being replaced by award-winning actress Gabrielle Union and dance star Julianne Hough. Union’s acting breakthrough came in 2000 with the film “Bring it On,” and she starred in her latest movie “Breaking In” last year. Hough first rose to international fame on “Dancing with the Stars,” but has since appeared in several movies including “Safe Haven” and the remake of “Footloose.”

Hough and Union shared messages with their social media fans to confirm the news. Both ladies are extremely "excited" about their roles on the hit tv show.
