It’s been a week since Nick Cannon quit America’s Got Talent. Still, the long-time emcee of the popular show has no plans of returning – soon or ever, even if he’s about to get sued for breach of contract. Now, a lot of people are asking: what’s next for Nick Cannon after quitting AGT?
Nick Cannon quits AGT after being threatened
According to Cannon, he decided to quit America’s Got Talent after NBC threatened to fire him due to a joke he said in a recent stand-up comedy special in Showtime’s Stand Up, Don’t Shoot. Instead of waiting for NBC to actually fire him, Nick released a statement on Monday, February 13, that he is quitting AGT. On February 16, Nick made an even stronger statement that he will not return and stood his ground.
