Earlier this month, Simon Cowell had injured his back after a tragic accident. Simon was supposed to judge ‘America’s Got Talent’ but it seems like he needs rest more than anything now. Meanwhile, Kenan Thompson has happily agreed to fill in his shoes as the judge of ‘America’s Got Talent’.
Kenan Thompson will be joining the fellow judges Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum, and Howie Mandel. Terry Crews will be reprising his role as the host of the globally renowned show. The panel expressed their love for Simon and wished him a speedy recovery.
Kenan Thompson also tweeted saying that he absolutely loves being on the judge seat. He has waited a long time for it and even though he loves Simon, he is enjoying his chair a bit too much. He asked Simon to take his time in recovery as he could do with another job at the moment.
Simon faced an accident earlier this month. He fell from an electric bike and injured his back. He had to undergo a surgery for six-hours and get metal rods inserted in his back. While he is out of danger, he still needs time to recover. The 60-year-old artist has started walking again but needs proper recovery.
