Jugglers, singers, magicians and dancers – get ready to face Howard Stern.

The shock jock radio and TV star will serve as a judge on season 7 of America's Got Talent, NBC announced Thursday.

"Howard Stern's larger-than-life personality will bring a thrilling new dynamic to America's Got Talent starting this summer," NBC's Paul Telegdy said in a statement. "He's a proven innovator and his track record in broadcasting is truly remarkable. Howard is very passionate about this show and is fully committed to its future success."

Stern, whose SiriusXM radio show is based in New York, won't necessarily be making cross-country trips for his new gig, as AGT is moving production of its live shows to the Big Apple. Stern, who is replacing Piers Morgan, will join judges Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and host Nick Cannon.



America's Got Talent is currently holding auditions for season 7, with upcoming open calls in Austin, Charlotte and San Francisco.
