Simon Cowell will be back on TV in the US. We haven’t seen him since his US version of ‘X Factor’ went off the air. It’s important to note that Simon has been judging performers on TV in his native UK, but he’s coming back across the pond for ‘America’s Got Talent.’
Simon said of his new venture:
I am really thrilled to be joining America’s Got Talent next season. What I love about this show is that it’s open to absolutely anyone. America has some fantastic talent just waiting to be discovered, and I would like that talent to come to our show, including any dogs who can sing!”
Simon created the ‘Got Talent’ property; he’ll still be an executive producer on the show ;).
Robert Greenblatt, the Chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement:
Simon knows this format better than anyone and he’s been producing the show with us since the beginning, so we’re thrilled to have him to step in front of the camera and take his rightful place at the head of the judges’ panel. We welcome him to the on-screen NBC family.”
Simon will replace Howard Stern, who left the show after last season. Are you looking forward to seeing Simon return to the judges’ table?
