About two months ago, Simon Cowell met with an accident, breaking his back, but the popular television personality is all set to make an impressive comeback to America’s Got Talent for the grand final.
This piece of news from fellow judge Heidi Klum, who told The Mirror, “he is going to come to the finale, but do not tell anyone.” It remains to be seen whether or not this will be in person or over a video call, but fans will find out when the episode airs next week.
At the time of Cowell’s accident, an America’s Got Talent spokesperson told Digital Spy: “Simon has broken his back in a number of places in a fall from his bike whilst testing a new electric bike in the courtyard of his home in Malibu with his family.”
“He was taken to hospital where they operated overnight, he’s under observation and is doing fine.”
Pop star Kelly Clarkson was brought in to replace Cowell on the judging panel, with Kenan Thompson serving as his replacement for an episode. The ‘Since U Been Gone’ singer took to social media to announce her disappointment, writing: My friend, Simon Cowell, is doing better now but was in an accident and won’t be able to make Tuesday and Wednesday’s live shows for AGT.”
“But no worries America, someone far wiser, cooler, and hotter is taking his seat! The unbelievably amazing Kelly Clarkson [winking emoji]. You’re welcome in advance!” she added.
