Howie Mandel Joins ‘Canada’s Got Talent’ Judging Panel, Set to Premiere Next Year
Canada’s Got Talent is coming back to Citytv after a nine year hiatus. This branch of the Got Talent franchise has been revived after facing cancellation in 2012. Fans of the franchise were happy to hear that this series would be returning to television, now with our favorite America’s Got Talent judge on the panel.
Howie Mandel will sit at the judges’ table along with Canadian comedian and YouTuber Lilly Singh; professional wrestler Trish Stratus; and Canadian rapper, music producer and DJ, Kardinal Offishall. Canadian country pop singer Lindsay Ell will host the upcoming series.
“This dynamic and powerhouse team of globally celebrated Canadian heavyweights – Howie Mandel, Lilly Singh, Kardinal Offishall, Trish Stratus, and Lindsay Ell – set the stage for ‘CGT’ to uncover the nation’s most unique and mind-blowing acts,” said Nataline Rodrigues, director of original programming, Citytv.
The judges for this series are setting this show up for greatness. Each of them are talented in their own ways and have had a lot of experience in their industries.
