The America’s Got Talent judges will look a bit different for Season 14. In another effort to re-invent itself, the reality competition show is changing who will be on the panel.

That’s not all, as host Tyra Banks has also been replaced on the program. Prior hosts have been Jerry Springer and Nick Cannon, with Banks taking over following the exit by Cannon. Now, Banks has been replaced as well.

Union has been in Hollywood for a while, racking up for roles in films including Bring It On, Bad Boys II, 10 Things I Hate About You, and her new show L.A.’s Finest

Hough has also been in a number of movies, but she is best known for her time on Dancing With the Stars. Hough was a dancer before she took a seat on the judges’ panel of that show. Now, she can bring that experience to AGT.

Who is the new America’s Got Talent host?

Terry Crews is taking over as the new full-time America’s Got Talent host. Crews had been walking the stage as host of America’s Got Talent: The Champions this winter, and he will continue that role for the summer 2019 season. He has done a great job in the limited time viewers have seen him.

Changing the America’s Got Talent judges is not a new thing, as people like Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and Howard Stern have come and gone from the show.

The changes from Mel B and Heidi Klum over to Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough will bring a new freshness to the program, even if it seems like a huge change.

America’s Got Talent returns to NBC with new episode for Season 14 in summer 2019.
