America’s Got Talent! Yes, the best all-round show in television also deserves bragging rights for finding a cohesive yet diverse panel of judges.
The judging trio comprised of Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel are the epitome of what every judging panel should emulate – succinct critique blended with humorous and unexpected banter.
Last summer was the first time I actually watched the entire run of America’s Got Talent.
I tuned in specifically to see what Howie Mandel would bring to the plate. I think he is a brilliant comedian but what I didn’t expect was how quickly and precisely he could provide critique to the various acts throughout the show.
Through it all, I also developed enormous respect for Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne.
Sharon was indeed a classy, intelligent artist and, yet, was warm and nurturing to the performers, while providing them with excellent feedback.
Piers was slightly more penetrating in his critiques and quite a perfectionist in his assessment of excellence on the America’s Got Talent stage.
However, all three had an undeniable charm and a strong commitment to the entertainment value of the show.
The Season Premiere, a two-hour telecast, airs on NBC on Tuesday, May 31st.
The production elements in this show are spectacular and give us a strong indication of what we can expect from Simon Cowell’s X-Factor series in the Fall.
