Simon Cowell smells fresh blood! The judge is joining ‘America’s Got Talent’ for season 11 and in the first trailer, his fellow co-judges are not so sure it’s a good idea. Watch here!
The trailer begins with multiple cop cars blasting in through a garage, and when they get out, they are carrying a body on a wheelie cart — very Hannibal Lecter style. They’re greeted at the door by Nick Cannon. “He’s here,” he says into his watch. From there, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Mel B. and Nick come face to face with Hannibal, er, Simon.
“Well we finally meet,” Howie starts. “Is he really going to behave himself?” Mel B adds. And with that, Heidi leans and says right in Simon’s face, “he better.”
After the mask is removed, Simon, in very Simon-like manner, asks “Is all of this necessary? I don’t actually bite.” Howie’s response is pretty cute, of course. “That’s not what we heard,” he said. We also see a few flashes of some of the talent — AKA, “dinner” as Simon puts it. The dynamic will definitely be interesting this time around!
“I am really thrilled to be joining ‘America’s Got Talent’ next season,” Simon said in a statement when joining the show. “What I love about this show is that it’s open to absolutely anyone. America has some fantastic talent just waiting to be discovered, and I would like that talent to come to our show, including any dogs who can sing!”
Season 11 of America’s Got Talent premieres Tuesday, May 31 at 8/7c on NBC! Will you watch? Do you think Simon will be a good addition to the team? Let us know.
