Simon Cowell Replacing Howard Stern as 'America's Got Talent' Judge!

Simon Cowell is set to return to your TV screens soon because he is replacing Howard Stern as a judge on America’s Got Talent!

“The good news is America’s Got Talent is back next year and the even better news is so am I!” the 56-year-old producer wrote on his Twitter account.

“About five or six years ago, I was offered the chance to be on the show and, at the time, I couldn’t do it. But I was a bit disappointed that I wasn’t able to. For the years (Howard) was on the show, he did a great job. I think at the point we really knew Howard wasn’t going to come back, we then had serious conversations with NBC. I thought, ‘I think this is the right time.’ So, I’m excited about it,” Simon told USA Today.

Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel are the other judges, though it’s unclear if they are all set to return.

Simon Cowell Doesn't Know if One Direction is Done for Good

Simon Cowell flies into the wind while riding a jet ski during vacation on Tuesday (August 25) in Capri, Italy.

The 55-year-old X Factor UK judge recently opened up about One Direction‘s split and whether he thinks it will be permanent.

“I don’t know if they’re going to split up to be honest with you,” Simon told Yahoo UK. “Even though they were young, that was a grueling schedule and after a while I could see they were exhausted so when they asked how I felt about it I said for them to do whatever they want. I’ve known for a while that they were going to take 2016 off, and they had to on their workload.”

He continued, “I said, ‘Make your own decisions, I hope you stay together but you’ve got to want to do it for yourselves.’ But they’re smart guys and they’ll work it out.”

Simon Cowell Gave Louis Tomlinson Advice After Baby News: 'Man Up'

Simon Cowell is opening up about talking to Louis Tomlinson after the news broke that he would be having a child with his friend Briana Jungwirth.

“I said to him, ‘You man up,’” the 55-year-old music producer told The Sun. “‘You’re fortunate because you’re in a position to be able to look after the baby and not worry too much about that.’”

“But I also told him, ‘I’ve received bad calls in my life but this is not one of them,’” Simon continued. “This is your business but I’m here for you.’ He didn’t kill anyone. He got someone pregnant. It happens every day all over the world. Again, Louis has got great family around him and, look, it’s a plus, not a negative.”

Louis and Briana‘s baby is due next year and he wants to be a “hands-on dad.”
