TV show description:
American Idol’s Simon Cowell created this show and judges the UK version, Britain’s Got Talent, but does not judge this US version due to contractual obligations.
The judging panel is made up of journalist Piers Morgan, actor/comic Howie Mandell, and reality maven Sharon Osbourne. Mandell replaced actor/singer David Hasselhoff and Osbourne replaced singer Brandy Norwood after the first season. It’s hosted by actor/rapper Nick Cannon, with Regis Philbin and Jerry Springer previously filling those shoes.
