America’s Got Talent just wrapped up auditions for Season 18, and some fans are sharing their honest thoughts on the show’s current judging panel — Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and Simon Cowell. Is it time for a change?


AGT Fans Think the Judging Panel Needs to Change

In a post on the AGT Reddit earlier this week, one user suggested that the show’s current judging panel is “getting kinda stale.” They pointed out that this is actually the longest-serving panel in the show’s history, with this being their fourth season together.

The post currently has 21 comments, with fans agreeing that the panel needs a shakeup. However, not everyone could agree on which judges should go, or who should replace them. Some think the entire panel should be replaced, while others think only one or two judges are the problem.

Some users think it’s time for Howie Mandel (the show’s longest-serving judge) to walk away, with one user writing that he’s “progressively become more of a bully over the years.” Another user complained about Heidi Klum “making the most obvious statements.”


Other users are tired of the same routine every season, such as Simon Cowell stopping singers mid-performance. One fan complained that none of the current judges “know talent.”

Who Should Join the Show’s Panel?

Fans had a few suggestions for who should join the panel for future seasons, including past judges Julianne Hough and Piers Morgan. One user suggested that Cowell should be replaced by former judge Howard Stern, calling him “the best judge to ever be on the show.”


“The show would be perfect if the judges were just four Terry’s,” another user wrote, with someone else agreeing that host Terry Crews is “the best part of the show right now.” While he doesn’t sit on the panel, Crews does to get to hit the Golden Buzzer each season.

I think so far this year there are only a handful of people that should be on there , I thought this is America has talent , not International has talent , Howe Mandel diffinitly needs to go , he thinks the stupidest acts are great , and the good acts he tears apart , I think the judges from the music industry should be judges , or the people from Vegas that books the acts , should have a.say in what acts they want , AGT is starting to lose its appeal , with the same O same O
