When NBC announced that Howard Stern would be joining America’s Got Talent as a judge, many folks were torn on whether or not he would make a good judge, despite reassurance from Simon Cowell. If you had any doubt that Howard Stern would be a good judge, you may be in for a surprise as the shock jock endured his first round of auditions recently, and he’s been behaving quite well. Read on for more…
Shock jock Howard Stern took on his first round of auditions for the new season of America’s Got Talent this week, and he has even surprised himself with his behavior. Stern talked to NBC about his first audition experience, where he revealed: “There were times when I was downright compassionate. It was really unsettling,” adding: “I’ve taken more no-talents and made them talents. There is a way to sculpt people, to mentor people, and a way to find something that would tap into the national psyche.”
Howard Stern also wants viewers to know that he is not trying to “be” Piers Morgan, but instead he is bringing a new perspective to the show – so, don’t expect him to buzz everyone in sight. Howard Stern went on to say that it was strange at first, especially when it came to the children as he explained about his first day on the job: “I buzzed a nine-year-old kid. The kid was adorable, but I did it, man, you got to do it. I said, ‘Look, you’re cute, you’re adorable, but goodness gracious, you don’t belong on America’s Got Talent,’ and you just feel like the devil himself.”
It sounds to us as though Howard Stern may be settling in nicely at America’s Got Talent. What do you think of Howard Stern heading to America’s Got Talent? Will he make a good judge, or will he deter you from watching? We think he will do fine, and after all, Simon Cowell assured us that no crazy antics would be tolerated, so we should have no worries!
