Reportedly, Simon Cowell is in the mood for an America’s Got Talent shakeup.

“The word on the street is they are replacing all ‘AGT’ judges except Simon [Cowell],” a source told Page 6.

“It started with [talk about replacing] Mel B and now it’s everyone. Tyra [Banks] is gone.”

Along with Mel B, the judges panel includes Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel.

But another insider told Page 6: “It’s inaccurate. The brand is extending, and is doing phenomenally well.”

Meanwhile, a source told us, “There hasn’t been much buzz about who’s replacing them .?.?. Simon’s ready for new judges.”

However, according to the source, the plan may need to be executed too quickly to make it happen for the new season.

Why would Simon try to fix something that isn’t broken? AGT is still the #1 summer show.  Also, it will soon be time to tape auditions.  If Simon plans to replace the panel, he’d better do it soon.
