The famous stand-up comedian was present at the judges' table alongside his peers- Simon Cowell, Sofia Vergara, and Heidi Klum, for the first hour of the episode, giving his valuable feedback and insights to the performers. So, when Howie was suddenly missing from the panel and none of the judges or the showrunners gave any explanation behind his absence during the second half of the episode, fans began growing worried and concerned. Thankfully, Howie seems to be just fine and was down with Covid 19 at the time of filming, so he had to step away. Though Howie assured his fans that he was fine, many of them took to Twitter to express their concerns for his health.
