Reality TV’s Newest Stars: Barbra Streisand and Cher

They’ve got Talent, yes they do.

With Season 8 right around the corner, America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon spoke out about his dream team for the judges’ panel.

“[Barbra] Streisand, Cher, call us. We’re ready!” Cannon told Celebuzz at the Cartoon Network’s Hall of Game Awards in Santa Monica, Calif.

When it comes to revamping NBC’s judging lineup on the reality competition, Cannon would love to “put some ladies in the mix” following Sharon Osbourne’s controversial departure.

“That would be amazing. That’s what I’d aim for,” he said about the idea of bringing Streisand and Cher on board. “I think [the producers] should reach that far and get those people, absolutely.”

As for the male mentors, Cannon expressed his love for Howie Mandel and Howard Stern, who signed on for another season in December.

“I got the best judge in the game, Howard Stern. He and I can hold it down,” he said, adding, “I would love to see Howie [Mandel] back. I want Howie to come back. Howie’s hilarious and awesome on the show.”

Good news for Cannon: Mandel announced his return to the judge’s chair on Wednesday. (via USA Today)
