AGT's Nick Cannon and Howard Stern Bond on 92.3 FM
America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon joined new judge Howard Stern for a rare interview on New York’s WXRK 92.3 FM to discuss the upcoming season of AGT. Stern is no stranger to the station having hosted the morning show for years before moving to Sirius. It was the first interview with both stars and though many expected it to be awkward, the pair got along quite well.
Cannon first advised Stern that he has to prepare for long work hours on the AGT set. He said judges work up to three 12-hour days in a row and Stern joked he may just fall asleep if the talent’s not good. The shock jock added that Cannon works too hard and that’s why he fell ill over the holidays. The host assured him he’s cutting back on work, even if AGT is demanding.
The biggest shock of the interview was that Stern did not attack Cannon and his wife Mariah Carey as he has in the past. Stern said he’s never said bad things about the pair despite what tabloids claim. The only thing he deserves “chastising” for is admitting that Carey gained weight (well that generally happens when you get old AND have twins). Stern does expect to hangout with Carey backstage at the show when she’s around.
Are you excited for the line-up change at the judges table for America’s Got Talent 2012?
