On Saturday, “America’s Got Talent (AGT)” judge Simon Cowell injured himself while trying out an electric bike. However, the day before the accident, Cowell actually spoke about the possibility of his AGT team riding on bikes.
During the interview, AGT’s executive producer spoke about his excitement at going back to filming live telecasts. He confessed that he was skeptical about the show returning due to the many rules surrounding filming during the novel coronavirus disease.

THE ALL-NEW AGT
The star added: “I like that thrill of being on a roller coaster when you're like, this is gonna have its ups and downs but I don't know what's coming. I love that." As if he was having a premonition, the AGT judge also shared:
"We are going to be in golf carts, motorbikes and probably God knows what else.”
The golf carts and motorbikes would be used to ride around the Universal Studios set in Universal City, California. On Saturday, the star was testing out an electronic bike at his Malibu home when he fell and injured his back.
He spoke about riding motorbikes and the next thing you know his back is broken the next day.
GOING FOR SURGERY
HOW COWELL IS DOING
His representative shared that he was “doing fine, he's under observation and is in the best possible hands." The judge’s injury means he won’t be taking part in Tuesday and Wednesday's live telecasts as he continues his recovery from surgery.
STILL TAKING IT EASY
The executive producer was said to be back at work via his iPad.
