Simon Cowell inks deal to judge 'America's Got Talent' through 2019

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 10/04/2016 

Simon Cowell will apparently be gracing America's Got Talent with his presence for three more years.

NBC has announced Cowell inked a new deal to serve as a judge on America's Got Talent through 2019. 

NBC had already announced Cowell and fellow judges Howie Mandel, Melanie "Mel B" Brown and Heidi Klum would all return as judges for next summer's edition of America's Got Talent in August, however the new agreement ensures he will also remain a judge for the show's 2018 and 2019 editions.

Nick Cannon will also reprise his role as host of the show's 2017 season.

"It was terrific to see Simon in his judge's chair this past season, bringing his unique expertise and enthusiasm to the show, night after night," NBC reality chief Paul Telegdy said in a statement of the  America's Got Talent creator.

"His brilliance has made AGT the industry leader that it is today and his ability to evaluate and spot talent is unmatched, so we couldn't be happier to have him seated at the judge's table for the next three years."

Cowell will be returning next year for his second straight season on America's Got Talent. Klum and Brown will be back for their fifth edition, while Mandel will be back for his eighth. Cannon has been hosting the show for nine seasons.

"America's Got Talent is a fantastic and -- most importantly -- fun show both to work on and to watch," Cowell said in a statement.

"NBC have been brilliant partners and the entire team who make this show are one of the best in the world. I've loved this past season and look forward to discovering more great talent together in the years to come."

The latest season of America's Got Talent concluded with Grace VanderWaal being crowned champion.
