In the latest change to the ever revolving cast of America’s Got Talent, David Hasselhoff will be leaving America’s Got Talent.
â€œI am proud that I was part of making Americaâ€™s Got Talent the No. 1 rated show for the past four summers. Itâ€™s been a rewarding experience and now Iâ€™m thrilled to be able to follow my dream to do my own TV show, which will be announced very shortly,” Hasselhoff told People.
David is the second judge to leave the show. Brandy was on for season 1 before being replaced by Sharon Osbourne. The show has also seen the departure of two hosts, Regis Philbin and Jerry Springer. It took Idol 8 seasons to lose more than just a Dunkleman.
NBC is currently searching for Hasselhoff’s replacement for when the show returns this summer. No names have been mentioned yet, but I can imagine the 7 Paula Abdul fans are salivating at the potential. Whatever happens, I’m cool with it as long as Piers sticks around.
