Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden are all returning to 'Britain's Got Talent'.
The 2012 judging panel have all confirmed they will take their seats at the table again for the seventh series, while Ant & Dec will return as hosts for the talent show.
Show chief Simon is delighted to have the line-up back again and is looking forward to finding a "global star" following the success of last year's winners Ashleigh & Pudsey.
He said: "I loved doing the show last year, the new panel worked really well and I'm very happy they have all agreed to come back. Last year was a special year for talent and I hope that in 2013, off the back of an amazing year for Britain, we find another global star."
Amanda - who is the only other remaining original judge - added: "I'm thrilled to be back on 'Britain's Got Talent'. It's the best fun ever and I love it! I'm not even going to try to be cool about the fact that I'm back! I'm over the moon!"
Meanwhile, former 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge Alesha is looking forward to the auditions so she can see what the country has to offer.
She said: "We had an incredible series in what has been a fantastic year for Great Britain, the talent blew us all away and I can't wait to see what delights neat year brings."
And while the other judges are looking forward to checking out new talent, David is most excited about spending time with Simon again.
He said: "My Simon and I are going to be together again. I'm delighted to confirm I will be a judge on 'Britain's Got Talent' again next year. I am so happy I could cry."
