Cowell Channels Inner Lecter For ‘America’s Got Talent’ Promo

The very name of Simon Cowell strikes fear into contestants of reality competition shows everywhere. For the newest contestants on ‘America’s Got Talent’, this is a bad thing.


Cowell is the newest judge on ‘America’s Got Talent’ and knowing he fear strikes fear and he’s (as the brits put it) absolutely mental, they put him into a straight jacket and Hannibal Lecter-type mask for the promo shoot. This didn’t stop fellow judges Mel BHeidi Klum, and Howie Mandel from having some fun with him tied up. Check out this behind the scenes of shooting the promo with the judges and Nick Cannon here:


America’s Got Talent kicks off Season 11 on Tuesday, May 31, 2016, on NBC.
