In the USA, Simon Cowell is known as a very blunt reality television judge who doesn’t mince words and speaks his mind. Aside from being a judge, Cowell is a prolific producer and show creator. Cowell is one of the creators of two of the biggest and most watched talent competition television shows in the world, Britain’s Got Talent and the creator of the U.S. version, America’s Got Talent.
While Cowell is not a judge on America’s Got Talent, he is very hands on as a creator/producer of the series. Some might think that what entertains us here in the USA is much different than in the UK, but Cowell told us that he wasn’t a bit surprised that audiences in both countries have similar tastes.
