Cowell Wants Carmen Electra for 'America's Got Talent' NY Post
There's a judge's chair to be filled on NBC's "America's Got Talent" since Sharon Osbourne will not be back, and executive producer Simon Cowell reportedly wants the new judge to be Carmen Electra, according to the New York Post.
A source told the newspaper that Cowell wanted Electra last year as a fourth judge, but “… the network said, ‘no.'" Cowell lobbied for "somebody younger. A girl. Someone who will not be afraid of Sharon [Osbourne] and Howard and fight for a different type of act than they would.”
Electra did fill in on "Britain's Got Talent" for Amanda Holden last February.
As for the other judges from last season, neither Howie Mandel nor Howard Stern has been confirmed for later this season, although the paper claims that Howard wants to return. The judges will not be needed for shows until February.
