Thursday, May 27, 2010 1:32 GMTLOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) As a new judge on Americas Got Talent, funnyman Howie Mandel is rooting for the weirder performers.
Mandel, whos replaced David Hasselhoff on AGT, is happily embracing his new gig and all of the craziness that comes with it.
He thinks we need more unusual performers in entertainment these days, so hes inclined to vote through the sillier acts on AGT.
The comic is a huge fan of quirky performers like Andy Kaufman and Tiny Tim, who, in his opinion, proved that weird can work in showbiz.
But his offbeat taste in talent isnt sitting well with veteran AGT judge Piers Morgan.
Because of their differing opinions, Mandel says things will get pretty heated on the panel this season.
He says his main thrill in life is to annoy Morgan and his ultimate goal is to get slapped by the crabby Brit on TV.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
