America’s Got Talent 2024 LIVE — Menudo revives Ricky Martin’s former band but Howie Mandel admits he’s ‘not impressed’

AMERICA’S Got Talent returned on Tuesday night with more auditions, and boyband fans may have recognized a familiar group.

Menudo, a Latin-pop boyband, took the AGT stage and explained that they wanted to bring a new generation to the band that launched Ricky Martin’s career.

The original Menudo was formed in the 1970s in Puerto Rico. There have been multiple attempts to revive the boyband since.

The “new” Menudo stars members Andés Emilio, Nicolas Calero, Alejandro Querales, Ezra Gilmore, and Gabriel Rossell. Mario Lopez also backs the band.

Despite the history of Menudo, Howie Mandel said he “wasn’t impressed” by the group, and pointed out that only Nicolas was a star.

Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and Simon Cowell decided to send Menudo through, but Simon warned them that they had to “radically change.”

To see more auditions, tune in to America’s Got Talent on NBC next Tuesday at 8 pm EST. Fans can also stream the show on Sling and Peacock.
