The Talent Recap Show: Why Howie Mandel Is The New Simon Cowell On ‘AGT’

Jack Tomas | Talent Recap

On this week’s thrilling episode of The Talent Recap Show, Mel and I talk about something we’ve noticed with AGT host and comedy legend Howie Mandel…he’s slowly turning into mean old school Simon Cowell. Check out the show here:

Howie As The Old Simon On ‘AGT’

We’ve been seeing Howie be more of a stickler on the show for a while now but this past episode we saw several instances of it. For example with the Emerald Belles dance team or with Duo Togni. Even after the acrobatic dup took Howie for a ride in the air, he still didn’t vote for them.

It’s been clear for a long time that the old villainous Simon Cowell from back in the day is gone. Now he’s been replaced by a man who loves dogs and kids and is very supportive. Mel and I think that Howie had to step up to the plate and become the harsh critic. After all, you need that on the show. First of all, without it there is no conflict. Secondly, sometimes the acts need constructive criticism so they can get better.

Don’t forget also that Howie is celebrating ten years on the show. I imagine at that point you are probably pretty jaded. You’ve seen it all. Nothing surprises you. So, it’s no surprise that you would be a little pickier on what you choose to move forward. Either way, I’m here for it. Howie is a really nice guy, but he’s a total pro and his job on the show is to JUDGE people, you know?
