We see them on our screens every week and eagerly await their decisions, whether we agree or not. But have you ever wondered who they go home to?
With a panel of judges as varied as the one on 'America's Got Talent' and a host as vivacious as Tyra Banks, the show is in its 13th season and is already inviting people to audition for Open Call starting November.
Let's meet the judges and their partners – past and present:
Klum is a multi-talented German model, television personality, businesswoman, fashion designer, singer, television producer, author, and actress, according to her portfolio and was the first ever German model to become a Victoria's Secret Angel.
Klum married and divorced stylist, Ric Pipino. They were married for five years and had no children.
She then began a relationship with the Managing Director of Renault's Formula One team, Flavio Briatore. They split up while she was pregnant with his child.
Klum began dating musician Seal while pregnant and he was present for Helene Klum's birth. She considers Seal as her father and Briatore is not involved in her life at all. Seal has since legally adopted her.
Seal married Klum in Mexico and the couple has three more children together, sons Henry Günther Ademola Dashtu Samuel and Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel, and daughter Lou Sulola Samuel. The couple divorced four years ago after ten years together.
Heidi Klum and her younger art-dealer ex-boyfriend Vito Schnabel were together for three years until they reportedly decided to take a break.
Klum is now publically dating Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz, according to Instagram posts and appearances at Cannes Film Festival.
Cowell is an English reality tv judge of "Pop Idol," "The X Factor," "Britain's Got Talent," "American Idol," "The X Factor," and of course, "America's Got Talent."
Cowell was engaged to Mezhgan Hussainy, a make-up artist, but they never married. He reportedly dated American model Carmen Electra too.
But the most controversial relationship he has been in is his current one. Cowell began dating his friend Andrew Silverman's wife, Lauren. The Silvermans had one son together, Adam.
When their affair led to her falling pregnant, Silverman filed for divorce, bluntly naming Cowell as a co-respondent to adultery. They are currently raising their son Eric together but have not married.
Mandel is a Canadian stand-up comedian, actor, and television host. He was also the creator and executive producer of "Bobby’s World," a critically-acclaimed animated series.
Mandel has been happily married to his wife Terry Soil for almost four decades. They have three children together; two daughters Jackelyn and Riley, and a son named Alex.
Mel B is an English singer, songwriter, actress, and television personality who arrived on our radars as Scary Spice from the "Spice Girls."
Brown's whirlwind relationship with Dutch dancer Jimmy Gulzar during the "Spiceworld Tour" resulted in her getting engaged, pregnant, and married in a six-month period.
Phoenix Chi Gulzar was born the following year and Mel even changed her stage name to Mel G after her marriage. Brown filed for divorce a year later and won custody of their daughter.
Brown dated actor Max Beesley for two years and was in a lesbian relationship with film producer Christine Crokos for 4 years.
Brown then hit the tabloids by falling pregnant with Angel Iris Murphy Brown. After the courts ordered a DNA test that confirmed Eddie Murphy was the child's father, he admitted paternity and paid a settlement.
Brown married film producer Stephen Belafonte in secret and gave birth to her third child, Madison Brown Belafonte, four years later. They divorced last year with Brown accusing Belafonte of abuse.
Banks is a well rounded American television personality, producer, businesswoman, actress, author, former model, and occasional singer.
The elusive Banks has been linked with many A-listers including Seal, Will Smith, Drake, and was even rumored to have dated Tyler Perry.
Her longest relationships were with Erik Asla and John Utendahl spanning around four years each. She and Erik used a surrogate to bear their son, York Banks Asla.
None of her recent rumored liaisons have been confirmed.
