Simon Cowell is taking the judging position that’s been left vacant by radio mogul Howard Stern.
Cowell has become known as “Mr. Mean” on shows like “American Idol” and “The X-Factor”, so we are kind of curious as to whether or not he will rein that in.
With regard to his taking the judging spot, Cowell said, “We’ve been talking about it for a few years, funny enough, my and NBC. This year, everything worked. So it was perfect.”
If you think that being a father is making Simon soft, think again. He said, “I’m not going to lie to people when I think they’re hopeless, I just couldn’t do that! But no, of course I’m not going to be rude for the sake of being rude. That would be ridiculous. I’ll take it act by act.”
“America’s Got Talent” is hosted by Nick Cannon and is judged by Howie Mandel, Mel B., Heidi Klum and now Simon Cowell. It has yet to be confirmed as to whether or not Klum, Mandel, or Mel B. will be returning for the show’s eleventh season.
