However, while fans have gotten used to seeing the show switch from the big audition stage to the even bigger live shows, there will be an important change in that format for this season.

Unlike seasons of the past, season 17's live shows will take place at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, which is where the auditions have been taking place as well.

For seasons past, after auditions and judges' cuts wrap, the live finals have moved to the larger and iconic Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

However, the show will stick to their home theater for the live shows this season, which fans have become familiar with thanks to the many shots showcasing the spectacular venue during the audition episodes.

Howie was even absent from a few of the audition episodes, having taken a step away from days of filming due to having been diagnosed with Covid-19 at the time. While fans missed his presence then, they'll be delighted to see him back and live come the new AGT episodes.
