Piers Morgan announced on CNN that he will no longer be a judge on America's Got Talent.

The CNN host wants to focus his work on the 2012 election and said, "I've discovered that juggling, to my surprise, really is a bit more difficult than I thought."

However, the America's Got Talent judge added, "I've been a judge since the show began six years ago, and I've loved every single second."

Piers added a special thank you to "my great friend Simon Cowell, for giving me such a wonderful opportunity on that amazing show."

As for fellow judges Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and host Nick Cannon he said they, "will doubtless be very relieved that they no longer have to work with me."

But that didn't seem to be the case!

Nick Tweeted, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Now who's outfits am I going to make fun of?…First the FatBoys break up now @PiersMorgan is leaving Americas Got Talent?! We will miss you ol' friend."
