Howard announce that he planned to address his AGT co-judges, whoever they might be, during the show's first week: "Look, dudes. I know you're all excited and you're new and all this shit. Here's the deal. This is about the talent. I'm here to find really good talent. I want a superstar, goddamnit. And if you guys are gonna get in my way and start carrying on and promote your own careers, I'm not going to put up with it. No one is."
