In addition to Douglas, Ciara will be joining actresses Sara Foster and Laura Marano, entrepreneur and Shark Tank star Mark Cuban and singer Cole Swindell at the judging table.

Chris Harrison will also return to host the 96th annual Miss America pageant, with ESPN anchor Sage Steele joining him on stage.

It's been a big summer for both Douglas and Ciara.

While Douglas spent this month claiming gold with Team USA at the 2016 Rio Olympics, Ciara has spent her time enjoying life as a newlywed.

The "Body Party" singer wed NFL quarterback Russell Wilson in a lavish ceremony at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England on July 6. 

Ciara has since shared tons of pics from both the gorgeous wedding and her Vegas bachelorette party on Instagram, but it's her new husband who can't stop gushing about married life!

"We had about 100-plus people there at the wedding -- really close friends and family," he told ET last month. "They understand it's about love and keeping each other close and keeping it real tight knit, so that was easy to do for the most part."

"We'll take it one at a time," Wilson added, on whether he and Ciara are thinking about having kids soon. The singer already has one son, 2-year-old Future Zahir, with her ex, rapper Future. "Ultimately, it's just about spending quality time with each other. We're excited."
