America’s Got Talent will be losing two talents when it returns next season.
Judges Julianne Hough and Gabrielle Union, who both joined the reality competition show for its most recent season, will not return for the upcoming season 15. Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel and Terry Crews are expected to be back for the next season.
Variety was the first to report the news.
Union, 47, and Hough, 31, were announced as the newest judges of AGT in February, replacing Mel B and Heidi Klum. Crews also joined the show during season 14, taking over hosting duties from Tyra Banks.
It’s unclear who will replace Hough and Union for the upcoming season.
The winner of AGT season 14 was announced in September. After weeks of competition, singer Kodi Lee, who is blind and was diagnosed with autism, was crowned the champion. Lee bested fellow finalists opera singer Emanne Beasha, violinist Tyler Butler-Figueroa, dance troupe Light Balance Kids, singer Benicio Bryant and Ndlovu Youth Choir.
Newcomer Alesha Dixon, who is a longtime fan-favorite judge on Britain’s Got Talent, will join Cowell, Mandel and Klum as judges on the spinoff, replacing Mel B.
We enjoyed Gabrielle on AGT. We wonder what she’s getting herself into next?
