"American Idol" might not be the only talent competition with a judge exodus.
NBC's "America's Got Talent" may be in danger of losing Sharon Osbourne, according to a cryptic tweet she posted to her account ahead of Tuesday's show.
Addressing her co-judge Howard Stern, Osbourne wrote,“My darling @HowardStern, money is not the reason I’m not returning to @nbcagt, it’s because…” and then trailed off.
On Wednesday morning, Osbourne didn't address her earlier message, and instead said that she was going to miss "America's Got Talent" as it went on hiatus for NBC's 2012 Olympics coverage.
"Last AGT tonite b4 Olympic break. Looking forward to time off but will be counting the days until I see my AGT fam again whom I love & adore," she wrote.
According to reports, Osbourne didn't reference her impending departure while on the air (however her note was posted to her Twitter feed throughout the live show).
The 59-year-old joined "AGT" in 2007, and reportedly has a multi-year contract with the talent competition, which is now in its seventh season.
I think I will boycott.. If he can complete everything that is required I say give him a chance... Since NBC will not... i will also boycott NBC... I really only stayed watching AGT for Sharon and Howie. I cant stand Howard Stern. He is a Pierce wannabe! He will bring the show to the end along with NBC producers.
Three great judges, but the show is unwatchable, would anyone go to see any of these acts? It's the new Gong Show. Stern and Osbourne should be on A Idol as judges.
I continue to be amazed. Why on earth isn't Bristol Palin being asked to be on AGT or AI ? Anyone who saw her on DWTS has got to agree that she's got what it takes. A real beauty with a high IQ and an engaging personality. All she needs is a little exposure and she can be the next Gaga or Madonna.
The show you're thinking of is 'Game of Thrones'. 'A Game of Thrones' is a book. If you're going to insult someone try not to look like an idiot. Heck you have the internet at your fingertips it isn't that hard to search. Joe is a dummy.
Howard Stern is really the only reason I watch AGT.
I love sharon
Sharon as a talent show judge – ironic, she has no talent. Good – she needs to go.
You summed it up perfectly!!
Screw you, Jcrew. Sharon KNOWS talent, she knows the business. She's been a manager in the entertainment business longer than you can imagine. She's a sweet person and tells things like it is. She deserves to be a judge on this show, but personal matters often conflict with certain jobs. If she leaves, she will be sorely missed, but forever loved by all.
my sharon ... survivor all the way, looks great..she's not going anywhere..publicity attention
First American Idol judges, now this. Who cares?? Just cut the shows!
I don't watch the show, but I suspect it may have something to do with her son's medical problems. As it should be.
Who cares? The show is terrible.It is not about the judges.
Howard Sterntk would make an awesome Gandalf in the next 'A Game of Thrones' movie!
This annoys me too. I didn't even know she was on 'A Game of Thrones!' What part does she play? One of the dwarves?
