It’s been reported today that Simon Cowell is set to add to his already hefty work schedule by returning to America’s Got Talent as a judge, now that Howard Stern has stepped down.
According to The Sun’s TV Biz Simon will be undertaking to appear on America’s Got Talent in addition to X Factor UK and of course Britain’s Got Talent.
This could prove to be “a potentially massive logistical headache” as he will obviously have to fly between America and the UK, possibly at least twice a week, if not more.
The Sun also adds, “Simon has always wanted to do AGT,” but states that because it airs on NBC, and he formerly had a deal with FOX, “his hands were tied”.
However, a US TV source remarked, “Simon has been off the television in the last couple of years focusing on family life. But with his comeback to British screens, he also wants to make his way back into America."
"And he's more than used to the travel."
“He feels this is his show and one of the biggest NBC has to offer.”
No stranger to American TV audiences, Simon first appeared on US television on 'American Idol' from 2002 to 2010 before launching the US 'X Factor' in 2011.
However after the show failed to take off in the States, he decided to return to the UK version last year.
And if Simon does join 'America's Got Talent' he will be reunited with his former fellow 'X Factor' judge Mel B - who was axed in favour of Rita Ora earlier this year - who sits on the judging panel alongside Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and the departing Howard Stern.
What do you think? Would Simon be a welcome addition to the AGT panel? Tell us in the comments below...
