The problem with AGT was they surrounded Howard with pals, kiss-asses. It was all lovey-dovey, and boring. They tried to create tension, but it was fake. American Idol, on the other hand,... http://www.tmz.com/2012/10/02/nicki-minaj-mariah-carey-fight-american-idol-audition/ I hope Howard signs on, and they put some young stuck-up bitch on the panel. That's gonna be fun.
