Kelly Clarkson Filling In for Simon Cowell on ‘AGT’ After Back Injury
Another “American Idol” alum will fill Simon cowellthe shoes while he recovers from his broken back – Kelly clarksoncomes under the spotlight for “America’s Got Talent”.
Kelly herself made the announcement Monday with a mock “AGT” memo sent to “All Staff.” It reads: “My friend Simon Cowell is better now but was in an accident and won’t be able to do the Tuesday and Wednesday live broadcasts for AGT but don’t worry America, someone much wiser, cooler and warmer takes their seat! “
He continues, “The Incredibly Amazing Kelly Clarkson 😜 You are most welcome in advance!” Kelly will record live shows from Tuesday and Wednesday alongside Sofia vergara, Howie mandel and Heidi klum. Looks like it will only take 2 days before Simon can get back to his judge’s chair.
As we reported … the label executive broke his back last weekend while electric biking in Malibu. He underwent 6 hour surgery and is now recovering. It’s unclear if he’ll miss any other live shows – but if he does, his seat will be in good hands if they do replace KC again.
Kelly has been doing a bit of judging herself lately – she’s been showing up as a regular on “The Voice” … and obviously she’s killing and making big TV. Quite naturally for “AGT”, obviously.
