As we ring in the New Year, America’s Got Talent: The Champions is quickly approaching! However, the series has already proven to be controversial, due to the firing of rookie judges Julianne Hough and Gabrielle Union. And, while Gabrielle has went on to tell her side of the story, host Terry Crews remained silent.
However, in a recent Instagram post, Crews has finally cleared up where he stands. And, it’s with Simon Cowell, NBC, and America’s Got Talent.
In the post, Crews posted a video of his Golden Buzzer last season, runner-up Detroit Youth Choir. However, the biggest part of the post is in the caption.
Crews said quote,
“I would host @agt FOR FREE. I love being able to give amazing talent their dream come true and change their lives for the better forever…”-Terry Crews
As such, it seems like Terry has clarified how he feels about the show. And, by saying that he would host for free, it contradicts the racism and negative work environment allegations that were reported in November.
