Simon Cowell Seeking Fourth Judge for America's Got Talent
Howard Stern is in, but is everyone else? Simon Cowell’s not too busy with The X Factor finale this week to address any concerns with the upcoming season of America’s Got Talent. He’s pleased with Stern joining the panel, but it’s not the only change he’d like to make to the show.
It appears that Simon Cowell wants to add a fourth judge to the AGT judges table because he feels four people “leaves less room for error.” The executive producer spoke to The New York Post, explaining that it also “means you can have different skills sets on there.”
Simon Cowell’s defense on his decision makes sense, but let’s not forget what happened when American Idol added a fourth judge. Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi were more awkward and pointless than effective. However, four judges worked for The X Factor.
Though Howard Stern is officially joining the show, Howie Mandel, Nick Cannon and Sharon Osbourne have yet to sign on for the seventh season. Simon Cowell’s not worried though, he truly thinks that it’s a 99 percent chance everyone will return.
Just who is he looking for as the fourth judge? Someone who is younger and female. “Someone who will not be afraid of Sharon and Howard and fight for a different type of act than they would.”
Who do you think should join AGT alongside Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Howard Stern?
