Simon Cowell has joined AMERICA’S GOT TALENT season 11 as a judge, NBC announced. Cowell — who created the GOT TALENT format — previously served as a judge on Fox’s AMERICAN IDOL and THE X FACTOR.

“I am really thrilled to be joining AMERICA’S GOT TALENT next season,” said Cowell in a statement. “What I love about this show is that it’s open to absolutely anyone. America has some fantastic talent just waiting to be discovered, and I would like that talent to come to our show, including any dogs who can sing!”

“Simon knows this format better than anyone and he’s been producing the show with us since the beginning, so we’re thrilled to have him to step in front of the camera and take his rightful place at the head of the judges’ panel,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “We welcome him to the on-screen NBC family.”

“As the creator of the ‘Got Talent’ format, he genuinely loves the show more than anyone and is uniquely qualified as we take ‘AGT’ into its next decade,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment. “We can’t wait to see the incredible acts the show will uncover as we head into season 11.”
