ENTERTAINMENT NEWS (CNN) — "American Idol" might not be the only talent competition with a judge exodus.
NBC's "America's Got Talent" may be in danger of losing Sharon Osbourne, according to a cryptic tweet she posted to her account ahead of Tuesday's show.
Addressing her co-judge Howard Stern, Osbourne wrote,"My darling @HowardStern, money is not the reason I'm not returning to @nbcagt, it's because..." and then trailed off.
On Wednesday morning, Osbourne didn't address her earlier message, and instead said that she was going to miss "America's Got Talent" as it went on hiatus for NBC's 2012 Olympics coverage.
"Last AGT tonite b4 Olympic break. Looking forward to time off but will be counting the days until I see my AGT fam again whom I love & adore," she wrote.
According to reports, Osbourne didn't reference her impending departure while on the air (however her note was posted to her Twitter feed throughout the live show).
The 59-year-old joined "AGT" in 2007, and reportedly has a multi-year contract with the talent competition, which is now in its seventh season.
