This promising update comes via fellow judge Heidi Klum, who revealed (via The Mirror): "He is going to come to the finale, but do not tell anyone."
It's currently unknown whether or not this will be over video call or in person, but fans will find out next week when the episode airs.
At the time of Cowell's accident, an America's Got Talent spokesperson told Digital Spy: "Simon has broken his back in a number of places in a fall from his bike whilst testing a new electric bike in the courtyard of his home in Malibu with his family.
"He was taken to hospital where they operated overnight, he's under observation and is doing fine."
Pop star Kelly Clarkson was immediately brought in as his replacement on the judging panel, with Kenan Thompson also taking on his duties for an episode.
Announcing her appointment on social media, the 'Since U Been Gone' singer wrote: "My friend, Simon Cowell, is doing better now but was in an accident and won't be able to make Tuesday and Wednesday's live shows for AGT.
"But no worries America, someone far wiser, cooler, and hotter is taking his seat! The unbelievably amazing Kelly Clarkson [winking emoji]. You're welcome in advance!"
America's Got Talent airs on NBC in the US and on Netflix in the UK.
