It’s summer!  Well, almost – but, as I write this, the sun is shining and you can smell and feel the warm weather in the air.  So, good times ahead for all! 

And with the warmer weather comes our favorite summer time reality show – America’s Got Talent. However, I also love MasterChef which debuts tomorrow evening – but more on that in 24 hours. 

Are you excited to see Simon Cowell at the judges’ table?  I am!  I hear he has mellowed and is more, shall we say, accommodating to some of the more ridiculous acts we will undoubtedly see on that AGT stage.  Nothing like parenthood to put everything into perspective, right Simon

Joining Simon will be returning judges Mel B., Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel  and, of course, your lovable host, Nick Cannon– so we are in for a very entertaining time both on and off stage.  

The Premiere Show airs on Tuesday, May 31st at 8:00 PM on NBC. 

Check out the promotional trailer below. You even get a glimpse of Simon’s adorable little son. What a sweetie!  And are you excited to see this season’s show? Please share in the comments section.
