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??
