America’s Got Talent 2016 Guest Judges Revealed: Louis Tomlinson, NE-YO, More

NBC has announced the guest judges for America’s Got Talent 2016, and some big names are on the roster for this season!

Beginning on Tuesday, July 12, the competition gets tense with The Judge Cuts round, as the remaining finalists who advanced from the auditions compete for judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and a Fifth Judge that alternates each week.

The guest celebrities in the role of Fifth Judge include comedian George Lopez, country music legend Reba McEntire, R&B singer NE-YO and One Direction star Louis Tomlinson (well, former One Direction star. But it’s hard to know if a band is ever truly done, in this day and age. I mean, NKOTB reunited, for crying out loud). The fun part of all this is that each guest judge will have a Golden Buzzer that will allow the celebrity panelist to save one act of his or her choosing.

Each of the current judges is responsible for bringing in a Fifth Judge, so if I had to guess, I’d figure George Lopez is Howie’s guest judge (considering the standup comedian connection), NE-YO is Mel B’s (Google Image Search tells me they’re friends), Louis is Simon’s, and Reba is Heidi’s by process of elimination. Then again, I could be hilariously wrong about all of this. Lord knows, it’s happened before.
