“America’s Got Talent” Judges Preview Season Premiere On “Today” – WATCH!
“America’s Got Talent” has its premiere on Tuesday night, and the judges appeared on the “Today” show to tease the new season. Watch below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, Howie Mandel, Mel B and Heidi Klum will be joined on the panel by “AGT” executive producer Simon Cowell, who is replacing Howard Stern at the table. And during a behind-the-scenes sit-down with host Nick Cannon and “Today” anchor Natalie Morales, the group made several jokes about the new dynamic Cowell has brought to the NBC competition. Mandel noted, “The most surprising thing about working with Simon is how funny you are.”
Cowell deadpanned in response “I think I’m falling in love with you.” And after some praise from Klum, the mogul cracked, “Can we do this interview every week? I’m loving it!” But it wasn’t a lovefest all around.
Asked about “annoying habits,” Cowell hilariously called out Mel B for “humping.” That prompted Mandel to quip, “There’s sexual tension. I don’t think it’s ever come to fruition.” More seriously, the comic went on to address why the show remains a hit.
“There isn’t that much television where the entire family at every age, every gender, can gather around and there’s something for you,” he said. Check out the full segment below, and come back to Gossip Cop for “AGT” premiere highlights tonight!
