The panel of celebrity judges is made up of singer Nicole Scherzinger, actor Ken Jeong (Community), actress and TV personality Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg and singer Robin Thicke.

The series is also hosted by actor, rapper and comedian, Nick Cannon — so you know there’ll be plenty of on and off-stage shenanigans.
