Howard Stern is hoping for a miracle to bring Sharon Osbourne back to "America's Got Talent" for next season.
"I'm kind of sad to hear that," Howard told Access Hollywood on Wednesday night backstage at "America's Got Talent" about Sharon's plans not to return. "I'm more than sad. I think that there's a great dynamic between Sharon, Howie [Mandel] and myself. I think we've been doing a good job judging. I enjoy working with Sharon, I've known her for years. I hope some sort of miracle can happen. Maybe she's got to walk into [NBC top boss] Bob Greenblatt's office and get down on her knees and beg him. I don't know what's going on I'm, I'm not privy to it, but I hope that she does return and maybe has a change of heart."
Howard's comments hint that he is interested in returning to the show. He originally singed a one-year deal with the program.
Howie opted for humor when Access brought up Sharon's impending departure at the end of the season.
"I'm still working on the Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart thing. I want to get Kristen to stay," he said when Access asked if there is a way to get Sharon to stay on the show.
"I am one man. So I'm working with Kristen right now and then I'm going to move on to Sharon," he added.
