Simon Cowell is usually the face of AGT, but he has concerned fans tonight by not appearing on the panel for the latest episode of the popular show.

The talent scout and TV personality had to duck out of this week’s live shows following an accident on his new electric bike.

He was required to have surgery after the incident and is still in recovery, so Kelly Clarkson will be taking on the role of guest judge in the meantime.

The judge recently spoke out about the accident, which saw him break his back in a number of places as he tested it out at home in Malibu.

He tweeted: ‘Some good advice…If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time. I have broken part of my back. Thank you to everyone for your kind messages.’

America’s Got Talent is currently airing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays on NBC. This channel can be streamed on fuboTV, which comes with a seven day free trial for new customers.
