Sharon Osbourne signed off from "America’s Got Talent" Thursday night, following up on a threat she made in her anger over NBC’s treatment of her son Jack, Deadline.com reports.
NBC executives have started the process of finding a new judge to fill her spot, the story notes.
Osbourne made her departure official during Thursday’s season finale while consoling the dance troop The Untouchables, who were eliminated from the program. "Don’t be sad, because it’s my last show, too. So we’re leaving together!” Osbourne told them, according to the piece.
Howard Stern didn’t talk about his plans after his contract ends this season, although NBC would like him to continue, the piece adds.
As previously reported, Osbourne last month said she would quit "America’s Got Talent" in a dispute with NBC involving her son, Jack Osbourne. Sharon Osbourne has accused the network of dropping Jack from the NBC show "Stars Earn Stripes” because Jack has multiple sclerosis.
