We knew Howard Stern was a great choice for America's Got Talent!
Sure, there was some skepticism, criticism, and just plain outrage from some viewers because of his radio show's mature content, but he's a smart, level headed guy who knows what he's talking about when it comes to quality entertainment.
In a recent interview, the shock jock revealed he has become "very confident" as a judge on the NBC talent competition by saying:
“I got my feet wet in Los Angeles, we moved along, and as a judge, I feel very confident now. I seem to have become the judge that America agrees with.”
The show premieres on May 14, so we can't confirm that, but we would not be surprised if we agreed with a lot of his feedback because Howard is known for his honesty. In fact, he believes that is the most important quality in any judge as he continued:
“I was a fan of [‘AGT’] almost from the beginning and I take judging seriously. I’ve called out other judges on these shows for being frivolous, for holding back their opinions, you can’t do that. People are coming to be judged. You can’t be mean to be the mean judge. You can’t be funny to be the funny judge, you’ve gotta come from an honest place [and] offer people criticism that they can take home and use. And that’s what I do.”
And if you heard any rumors about any conflicts between Howard, Howie Mandel, or Sharon Osbourne, it's all just that — a rumor! Howard set the record straight about his relationship with his co-workers by adding:
“Howie’s been nothing but wonderful, and Sharon too. When I came in, I was the new guy and they were very accepting, they were gracious.”
We can't wait to see what Howard is like on the show! How about U?
