He’s the most notorious judge in the whole reality TV/talent show game. He was one of the main reasons people tuned into American Idol during its heyday, and a major reason for the success of others offerings like Britian’s Got Talent and The X Factor. Now Simon Cowell is part of the America’s Got Talent team and he’s talking the new season – and a possible replacement.
There Are Some Big Changes On AGT This Season
This year will be an interesting one for AGT. Host Nick Cannon, in a controversial move for some, is being replaced by Tyra Banks. Simon shared his thoughts on the replacement with Entertainment Tonight, and he seems relatively happy about it. While he says very little about Cannon, he’s praising the sassy supermodel and believes she will be an asset to the show.
There’s A New Host
Of course, the big draw is the talent, both excellent and inexcusable. A lot of amazing applicants make their way through the judging arena, and once the competition sets in, the voting provides the kind of edge of your seat interaction that makes these shows so popular. The personalities of those involved also add to the experience – something Cowell is well aware of.
