Simon Cowell appears on both the American and British version of the show, meaning both shows have had to replace the TV judge after his nasty bike accident earlier this month.

Kelly Clarkson and Kenan Thompson were featured as guest judges in the most recent episodes of America’s Got Talent’s live shows.

The show, however, has just announced that they are ditching a guest judge for tomorrow’s episode and plans to keep it ‘all in the family’ for the next batch of live performances.
