AFTER a difficult season dealing with injuries and the pandemic, America’s Got Talent is back.
This season will welcome back last seasons judges and a live audience.
Season 16 will begin airing auditions for America’s Got Talent starting Tuesday, June 1 on NBC with episodes airing weekly at 8 pm EST.
The show will air auditions throughout July, with live shows beginning in August.
A winner will be named in September 2021.
America’s Got Talent airs on NBC and streams on Peacock. The show will also stream on Hulu.
The 2021 season will welcome back Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and Howie Mandel.
Terry Crews will also be back as host to lead us through this season.
Cowell took a mid-season hiatus last August due to an electric bike accident that broke his back.
He was immediately taken into a five-hour surgery which led to a long and difficult recovery.
The show welcomed him back to his seat on the panel in March after several weeks of recovery.
