Although Simon Cowell is the mastermind behind reality competition America’s Got Talent, he decided not to join the judging panel for the first 10 seasons of the show. However, NBC just debuted its 11th season and gave viewers their first look at Simon as the newest AGT judge. Replacing regular judge Howard Stern, Simon is sitting alongside Howie Mendell, Heidi Klum and Mel B, as well as host Nick Cannon. From X Factor UK to American Idol, Simon is no stranger to reality TV competitions.

He is well known for his blunt (often unapologetic) feedback and playful rivalries with his co-stars. Thus, it will be interesting to see how he interacts with his fellow AGT judges as the season continues on.
