Terry Crews is back in prime time, hosting the new season of “America’s Got Talent.” “Extra’s” Billy Bush spoke to Crews about the new season and his wife Rebecca’s battle with breast cancer.
Rebecca underwent a double mastectomy and Crews told Billy, “She’s amazing, 100 percent cancer free, recovering so well, but I’m going to tell you, man, it was scary, brother. It was really the most frightening news I’ve ever received… I’m the most thankful man in the world right now she’s doing so well.”
Things are also going well for “AGT,” which has contestants auditioning from home during the pandemic. “Oh, I’ve seen some amazing acts from home. Dude, we had a dog that was singing on cue, in tune — it blew my mind.”
This season, the judges include Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel, as well as Heidi Klum, who is returning to the show, and new addition Sofía Vergara.
Crews said of Vergara, “Listen, it’s like she was always there. She is so amazing.” He went on, “Being the first Hispanic judge in ‘America’s Got Talent’ history, it just brings a whole other side of the world.”
“AGT” premieres May 26 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
