Us British will decide if you have talent or not!

I don’t watch it (any of those “talent” shows) . Don’t care.

Makes sense. Who can judge whether a country has talent better than foreign people?

Does it really matter , the show is a farce .

RareDenver’s question wasn’t “Do you like America’s Got Talent?” or “Is America’s Got Talent a legitimate show?”

His question was whether you find it amusing that America‘s Got Talent has two British judges.

I find it more hilarious that it gets any viewers. That show is awful.

I see it as all part of this latest British invasion (last one was in the 60s). Have you not noticed that if it is British, it’s got a job on TV in America? The Geico gecko, Cat Deeley, Nigel Lithgoe, Simon Cowell, the spokesperson for Monex. They even play Americans and do the accent almost perfectly: Hugh Laurie on House.

Close behind comes the colonial expansion with actors from former British colonies dotting the prime time landscape including Aussies like the star of The Mentalist.

@Marina – And even Christopher Guest is a goddamn English Baron! How lucky is Lady Haden-Guest?

It’s the contestants that are American. I don’t think there’s any requirement for the judges to be American.

I have seen the show a couple of times, and yeah, I do;)

I don’t watch it (I don’t watch any tv) but maybe the judges should be Indian or Pakistani, just for a new slant on accents. Apu from the Simpsons says “you suck, tankyouverymuch.”
