He'll eat your liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti — AND insult your singing voice!

Simon Cowell may be famous stateside for judging American Idol and X Factor, but he's about to complete his trifecta.

That's because, as you may already know, the boisterous Brit is replacing Howard Stern for Season 11 of America's Got Talent!

We first heard about Howard's exit way back in June of last year, but it looks like NBC wants us to get excited for Simon's return to TV because the competition series' first teaser is too much to handle!

We all love to hate Simon as an on-screen villain, but Heidi Klum, Mel B, Nick Cannon, and Howie Mandel, aren't taking any chances with their evil costar — going as far as locking him up Silence of the Lamb style!

Will U be tuning in for Simon on AGT??

Ch-ch-check out a sneak peek of America's Got Talent ahead of its premiere on May 31 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC (below)!!!

Now this is how you give an answer!

The winner of the final season of American Idol, Trent Harmon, is faring far better than the show's runner-up, La'Porsha Renae, after she was embroiled in a scandal over saying some pretty unwelcome things about LGBT people.

Speaking to TV Guide, the singing sensation shared his very level-headed thoughts on his home state of Mississippi's blatant anti-gay legislation, as well as his runner-up's response (below):
