Howard Stern on ‘America’s Got Talent’: How Did He Do? (POLL)

Has he Got Talent?

Shock jock Howard Stern made his debut as the new judge on America’s Got Talent in a two-part premiere Monday and Tuesday, surprising critics with his mild critiques rather than outrageous commentary.

The first audition rounds saw Howard hugging people around him, jumping on stage to hug contestants — and he even tried to hug the famously germaphobic Howie Mandel, one third of the AGT judging panel along with Sharon Osbourne. Is this a whole new Howard?

We want to know: Did you like Howard as the new judge?

Take our poll and give us your review in the comment section below!

Stern is one of many new personalities joining the collective reality show judges’ table, although he may have the highest paycheck — a reported $20 million!

Britney Spears is said to have signed on to The X Factor for $15 million, which is creating quite a buzz and building excitement for a number of talent shows.

Not to mention, Howard has talked some smack about Miss Spears and her ability to serve as a judge.

Is there a feud brewing? We’re used to seeing judges spat — but that’s usually on their own show! With Howard stirring up drama already, it looks like the more things change, the more they stay the same. Here’s  something we know for sure: If the clip below of Howard getting upstaged by a young girl is any indication, this is going to make for some great TV!
