Q: You can be biting and have no compunctions about speaking your mind, yet you are very gentle with the people auditioning for this. Why?

A: You can provoke people to just be mean. Over the last two seasons, it has been so accepting. They know they are safe here. We change people’s careers -- Collins Key opening for Demi Lovato.

Q: It makes perfect sense for those with talent, but why do you let some people go on when there’s no obvious talent?

A: You want to see where it goes. Howie (Mandel) and I have a debate. If you find a Tiny Tim, a loveable kook -- he was amazing. It’s the nuance.

Q: There are a lot of strange, fun, weird acts. Does that remain fun for you?

A: Where else could you go? We are like a beacon of light. Where do these people go? “The Gong Show” never took the talent seriously. This is network TV. This will survive that format because of variety.

Q: Have you considered being a judge on other shows?

A: I would be bored on a show because how many times can you listen to a singer?

Q: Have you changed as a judge?

A: Now I am really relaxed judging. I give constructive criticism. You want to make sure you are encouraging. Most people are very serious. You don’t want to humiliate acts.

Q: How does shooting some of the show at Radio City Music Hall make a difference?

A: Radio City just matters. It makes it more important.
