Piers Morgan Leaving ‘America’s Got Talent’

Morgan … Out!

Piers Morgan has been juggling two gigs, as a judge on ‘America’s Got Talent‘ and as the host of the nightly talk show ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’ on CNN. With all those plates in the air, Morgan decided that he’s had enough of the double duty and is bouncing from ‘AGT.’ Aw, we loved his cheeky British humor on the show.

Morgan tweeted the news of his decision posting: “I’m leaving America’s Got Talent after 6 wonderful years. Turned out that juggling’s harder than it looks, so I’m going to focus on CNN.”

Don’t look at us, Piers. We never said juggling (or pimpin’, for that matter) was easy. Morgan had been with ‘AGT’ since it launched six years ago and started hosting his own gabfest in January.

Morgan, 46, was also an original judge on ‘Britain’s Got Talent.’ He exited the show in 2010 after four successful seasons in order to take the CNN job.

Seems Mr. Morgan is more interested in the hard news network than anything! With the 2012 election on the horizon, Morgan wants to focus his energy and his attention on such matters. Oh, so the race to the White House to decide who gets elected leader of the free world is more enticing than sifting through the talent-less train wrecks to find a needle in the haystack-like talent, such as the lovely Jackie Evancho? We see you have your pop culture priorities in line, Piers. We kid, we kid.

We’ll miss him as he comments on both inane and talented acts!

The big question is: Who should replace him? What do you think, PopCrush readers? Should host Nick Cannon come down off the stage and sit on the judging panel or should they bring in an infusion of new blood on the panel?
