As the spring approaches, America’s Got Talent is returning. This year marks the 16th anniversary of NBC’s popular talent show. As you remember, fans who tuned last year were filled with many changes from the current coronavirus pandemic in Season 15. Amongst these was the failure of Simon Cowell, 61, head judge and executive producer, who, after falling off his electric bike and breaking his back in August, was forced to leave the show temporarily.
Simon recently told people that he felt far better and was ready to reassess AGT after a five-hour surgery and months of healing this summer.
That’s not that bad actually to break your back. He told the dealer. I must be honest with you. For three to four weeks, I mean, it wasn’t great, but you get through after that. Now I have a lot of workouts to do. He felt better than he did before the accident.
Now that we know that Simon is returning to the show, here is some more critical information about the next AGT season:
When will America’s Got Talent Season 16 start?
On Tuesday, 1 June 2021, AGT will be returning to NBC for season 16. AGT will air at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday nights and is expected to run until the middle of September, during the rest of the summer.
Who will be the Judges in Season 16?
Host Terry Crews on Twitter confirmed on February 24 that Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Sofía Vergara, all judges of the last season, will be coming back to 16. On Twitter, they will all go back.
“WE WILL SEE! So excited to say the gang is back for #AGT’s next season, “Terry tweeted next to a photo of the judges.
