“My friend, Simon Cowell, is doing better now but was in an accident and won’t be able to make Tuesday and Wednesday’s live shows for AGT, but no worries America, someone far wiser, cooler, and hotter is taking his seat!” Clarkson wrote. “The unbelievably amazing Kelly Clarkson. You’re welcome in advance!”

Cowell injured his back while riding an electric bike and required surgery.

Cowell thanked well-wishers for their “kind messages” in a tweet on Monday.

Clarkson will join fellow judges Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara. Terry Crews hosts the program.

“America’s Got Talent” airs Tuesday and Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
