With Piers Morgan the front runner to replace Larry King's talk show slot, his America's Got Talent co-stars have given him their seal of approval.

“If that happens, I just want to see if he can hook me up with an interview!” America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon told Access Hollywood.

“Even though on this show, my biggest goal is to annoy that man, and I do very well at it… I think he’s a brilliant journalist and interviewer. I go to dinner with him and it’s an interview!”

“It’s one of the biggest jobs in the world in terms of television interviewing,” he said before discussing his experience. “Back in Britain, I’m primarily known as a TV interviewer… I’m used to interviewing prime ministers and TV stars over there quite regularly.”

But he admitted: “Larry King’s suspenders are the biggest suspenders to fill in TV history. The guy, in my view, in terms of interviewing, is peerless.”
