David Hasselhoff, one of the three judges of America’s Got Talent, is leaving the show. How ironic, since he was the only American in the panel. His co-judges Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan are both British.
The 57-year-old Baywatch actor announced yesterday that he is leaving the NBC reality show to work on his own TV show. “I am proud that I was part of making America’s Got Talent, the No. 1 rated show for the past four summers,” David told People. “It’s been a rewarding experience and now I’m thrilled to be able to follow my dream to do my own TV show, which will be announced very shortly.”
NBC has been looking for a new judge to fill the empty slot since the fifth season of America’s Got Talent began open calls last October.
Who do you think should take The Hoff’s spot?
