Simon Cowell will be sitting out of two of the live shows for America’s Got Talent this season.
Shortly after it was revealed that the 60-year-old producer has broken his back following a bicycle accident, the announcement came that he would skip the live shows coming up on the reality television series.
According to Deadline, Simon will not be on the shows for Tuesday, August 11 and Wednesday, August 12, which are the first two live shows of the season.
After Simon broke his back from the fall in multiple places, he underwent surgery and is currently in the hospital recovering from the near six-hour surgery.
America’s Got Talent has had a multitude of hiccups this season, as the pandemic shifted the series from on stage and in person to over virtual platforms.
