One Direction‘s Louis Tomlinson will join country superstar Reba McEntire, R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo, and comedian and TV host George Lopez for the guest judging panel on America’s Got Talent next month.
Each celebrity will assist AGT judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel for the Judge Cuts episodes, set to air July 12 on NBC.
That week will kick off the program’s twice-weekly air dates for the remainder of the season, according to an official release.
The Judge Cuts involves adding a celebrity as a fifth judge assigned to a specific member of the panel. Since Tomlinson was discovered on the British version of The X Factor and grouped by Cowell into One Direction — along with Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik — it’s safe to guess that Tomlinson will be seated at Cowell’s right hand.
America’s Got Talent airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
