After what was an off season when it comes to the ratings, “America’s Got Talent” will be back on Tuesday, June 4 with the hope of restoring the series to its former glory. We have some familiar faces in host Nick Cannon and judges Howard Stern and Howie Mandel, but we also have some new ones to go along with it. Former Spice Girl Mel B is on board here after spending some time judging on Australian TV, whereas model / “Project Runway” host Heidi Klum has also signed on in what has to be the surprise casting choice of the year.
Based on the first promo for the new season below, though, it does not appear as though the new judges are going to be changing the show much at all. We are still going to have the same sort of silliness, the same good performers, and the same utterances of the judges saying various superlatives. Even Mel, who was notoriously awful to some of the contestants on the British version of “The X Factor” this past season, finds it within her heart to say a few nice things to some of the hopefuls.
Personally, we’ve found watching this show to be a mixed bag over the years. There were times in 2012 where we missed Piers Morgan, even if Howard is certainly entertaining in his own right. Not only that, but the talent level was also fairly questionable, and we had yet another winner that we have literally not seen a single thing from they were on the show last in Olate Dogs. So far, Terry Fator is really the only winner to make a splash, and you may not all too familiar with him unless you know the Las Vegas scene.
