NEW YORK, NY - Nov. 20, 2013 - Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel are set to return as judges to NBC's top-rated summer competition series "America's Got Talent." Nick Cannon will also return as host.

The announcements were made by Paul Telegdy, President of Alternative and Late-Night Programming, NBC Entertainment.

"Along with Nick serving as an incomparable host, our talent on 'Talent' is among the finest on all of television."

"The judges on 'America's Got Talent' this past season were fun, astute and really knew how to spot talent," said Trish Kinane, Executive Producer and President of Entertainment, FremantleMedia North America.
