And along with the insanely talented and the insane, viewers can expect to see a lot of famous faces appear throughout the season as celebrity judges.

“We got a lot of big stars on the show,” Will Arnett told E! News. “We are excited about some of them. We’re excited about all of them. When I say some of them, I’m doing a bunch, so we’re not as excited about me doing it.” (Speak for yourself, Arnett!)

So aside from The Lego Batman Movie star, which other celebs can we expect? A bunch!
