Well that didn't take very long.
When the only American on the panel for America's Got Talent announced that he would not be returning for Season 11, we were curious to see who would be his replacement.
And while Howard Stern is certainly a character, AGT managed to get an even bigger name in reality TV judging… Simon Cowell!

Despite the fact that American Idol is about to air its final season next year on FOX, Simon will be lending his talents to NBC for 2016 instead.
The 56-year-old will join Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mandel as the fourth judge alongside host Nick Cannon.
Are U excited for Simon's first American TV spot since X Factor??
