Talent Show judges come from all different walks of life before appearing on some of our favorite shows. Each celebrity has a different background before judging, so each have different personalities at the panel. Take this quiz to find out which type of talent show judge you are.


Simon Cowell is The World’s Favorite Harsh Judge

The most notoriously known judge with a distinct personality is Simon Cowell. He began his career on Pop Idol in the U.K., but soon was known as the harshest judge on television with American Idol in the U.S. Since his American Idol days he’s gone on to judge The X Factor, The X Factor UK, Britain’s Got Talent, America’s Got Talent, the spin off series: AGT: The Champions and AGT: Extreme, and more.

Cowell is loved by fans because he is brutally honest with how he is feeling. In recent years, he’s warmed up since becoming a father, but he can still be pretty harsh on occasion. Would you be like Cowell as a harsh talent show judge? or would you be a nice judge? Take this quiz to find out.

There are plenty of nice judges on television. This bunch of elite judges include Katy Perry on American Idol, Nick Lachey on Alter Ego, and Meghan Trainor on Clash of the Cover Bands. What I love the most about them is the fact that they’re able to sprinkle compliments into even their harshest critics. Perry, Lachey, and Trainor always have a comforting smile on their face no matter the act.


Cowell and Perry are returning to their respective judging panels this spring. Beloved harsh judge Cowell returns to NBC as a judge on the AGT spin off series, AGT: Extreme, while Perry returns to American Idol for her fourth season. AGT: Extreme premiered on NBC on Feb 21, while American Idol premiered on ABC on Feb 27.
