Calvin Harris was left feeling slightly sheepish when Howie Mandel made a rather teasing pun about his former relationship with Taylor Swift when he was compering the Caesar’s Palace 50th anniversary gala at the weekend in Las Vegas.
The 60 year old ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge blindsided Harris with the crack, when he commented upon his choice of suit as he presented the Scottish DJ with the Future Icon Award on Sunday night (August 7th).
The ex-CNN talk show host will be returning to 'America's Got Talent' as a guest panellist later this year.
Four years after he left the show, Piers Morgan has announced that he’ll be returning to the panel of ‘America’s Got Talent’ this year – as a guest judge. The British columnist and talking head announced the news on Twitter on Tuesday just ahead of the premiere of the show’s new season.
The tenth season of the NBC favourite kicked off last night (Tuesday May 26th), and the sometimes controversial journalist posted on Twitter: “BREAKING NEWS: America's Got Talent returns for Season 10 tonight... and I return to the judges' desk later this summer.”

Veteran popstar Cyndi Lauper and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker were spotted on the red carpet among arrivals at the 'America's Got Talent' finale event at Radio City Music Hall in New York. Cyndi looked sensationally gothic in a black lace number, sequined jacket and heavy choker.
After filming the 'Top 12' section of the ninth season of 'America's Got Talent', stars and judges were seen posing for photos on the Red Carpet. Amongst them was the runner up for the fifth season Jackie Evancho, the young classical singer. Also appearing was Quintavious Johnson who sang 'I'm Goin' Down' by Mary J. Blige and advanced to the finals.
The 'America's Got Talent' judges posed on the red carpet at an aftershow event held at Radio City Music Hall in New York and were joined by 12-year-old contestant Quintavious Johnson.
Spotted at an 'America's Got Talent' post show event which took place at Radio City Music Hall in New York were the show's judges Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Mel B, as well as E News correspondent Alicia Quarles who turned heads on the red carpet with an aqua-coloured snakeskin-effect playsuit.
Following the final round of the quarter-finals for the ninth season of America's Got Talent, the judges were pictured on the red carpet. Howie Mandel was photographed first, before a surprise 'photo-bomb' by last year's runner up, comedian Taylor Williamson. Williamson became judges Mandel and Howard Stern's favourite act, although he was unable to win the competition.
Following this, Heidi Klum was captured, also with Williamson and the pair adopted an 'air kiss' pose together. Finally, Mel B. - also known as Scary Spice - was seen posing on the red carpet. Williamson was absent from her pictures, however, possibly due to her nick-name from her Spice Girls days. The event took place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
Dismal ratings all round this week.
The reality singing competition landscape is changing and Heidi Klum’s appointment to the America’s Got Talent judging panel is probably the starkest proof. But with televised talent contests floundering left and right, what made the successful model and entrepreneur decide to branch out of fashion? Apparently, Ms Klum wants to share her experience and the business strategies that got her to where she is now. Even her occasional nuggets of wisdom during AGM’s premiere last Tuesday however, couldn’t help the show keep its head above the water.
America’s Got Talent saw some of its lowest ratings for a season opener this week - down 16% among Adults 18-49 from last year’s Season 7 premiere on May 14, 2012. according to Deadline. Still, it did see a mild increase in viewership from last season’s opening numbers – and we do mean very mild, with just 6% up to 11.102 million watching. Obviously, something is a miss. It should be pointed out that, however low the ratings were, America’s Got Talent was still the most watched program of the night. However, even with the addition of Klum and Mel B to the judging panel – which this year also includes vets Howard Stern and Howie Mandel – AGM is struggling to make up for lost ratings.
AGM’s competitor, The Voice, also took a beating this week. The 8 PM show slipped 6% from its live original at 9 PM last week to hit a Tuesday results show low. NBC still managed to take the night in terms of ratings, but it’s obviously an uphill battle at this point. And with the original reality talent competition – American Idol – having just capped off its worst ratings season yet – it’s becoming increasingly clear that the talent shows are fighting a lost war at this point. With or without the drastic lineup changes, the future is looking bleak.
