Kelly said as her “friend” Simon Cowell won’t be able to take part in this week’s live telecasts, she is there to fill in for him. She stated, “.. no worries America, someone far wiser, cooler and hotter is taking his seat!” Then, she welcomed herself in the show in advance.

Simon has undergone back surgery as his back was severely injured. He is stable now and has expressed his gratitude via Twitter to the fans who have wished him a speedy recovery.

Singer and recent Daytime Emmy winner Kelly stated, “My friend, Simon Cowell, is doing better at the present but was in a mishap and will not be capable of making Tuesday and Wednesday’s live shows for America’s Got Talent, but no qualms America, someone far cleverer, calmer, and hotter is taking his seat!” Clarkson penned. “The incredibly amazing Kelly Clarkson. You’re welcome in advance!”
“America’s Got Talent” is telecast on NBC every Tuesday and Wednesday at 8 p.m. The program is hosted by Terry Crews.
