After the judging panel shakeup that left long time judges Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander out after 18 cycles, this season will see Tyra Banks on the judging panel with fashion PR rep Kelly Cutrone and the new judge, former boxer and male model Rob Evans.

But it's not just the new judges who make the tough decisions, the fans will get their opinions heard with opportunities each week to vote for their favorite contestants. And in a new twist, fan votes could bring back eliminated contestants. Game changer.
