America’s Got Talent host Terry Crews took to Twitter on Monday to encourage fans to audition for Season 18 of the show. The tweet might have also confirmed the judging panel for the upcoming season.

Did Terry Crews Confirm the AGT Season 18 Judging Panel?

“Auditions for Season 18 of @AGT are underway!” Crews wrote in his tweet, alongside a photo of himself and the Season 17 judges posing with winning dance group Mayyas. “Sign up now at AGTauditions.com!”

Crews then tagged Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Sofia Vergara. Is this confirmation that all four judges are returning to the panel for Season 18 of the show? If so, it’s exciting news for fans of Vergara.

The actress skipped the current season of AGT: All-Stars, and some viewers were disappointed by her absence. It wasn’t clear exactly why Vergara didn’t join her fellow judges for the spin-off, which led some fans to worry about her future on the show.

What makes Crews’ tweet even more encouraging is that Vergara retweeted it on her own account. Hopefully that’s even further confirmation that she’ll be back for the next season.


Auditions for Next Season Are Open Now

In addition to possibly confirming next season’s judging panel, Crews’ tweet is also a reminder that talented hopefuls can now audition for the chance to be named the new America’s Got Talent winner.

Virtual open calls are coming up on February 8, 19, and 27. You can also submit your audition video at any time for consideration. Visit the AGT auditions website to sign up and learn more about the requirements and what to expect.

A premiere date has yet to be announced for Season 18, but the new seasons typically kick off in late May or early June. Let us know in the comments if you’re excited about Sofia Vergara potentially returning to the panel.
