The sound made when the judges "check" an act was originally the sound used when spins are passed on "Press Your Luck". The sound made when the judges "X" an act is the strike sound used in "Family Feud".
Right before Piers Morgan left and Howard Stern joined, Stern was interviewed by Morgan on his talk-show, "Piers Morgan Tonight". Stern had personally told Morgan that he actually enjoys him as a judge.

The shape of the X each judge has to use has had four different designs. In seasons one and two, the X was digital and the person's name would be in blue if they buzzed an act. In season three, the X exactly matched the design "Britain's Got Talent" uses. For the beginning of the live shows for the seventh season, the X's edges were sharper. In the next season, the name of the judge would have a white background, instead of blue, the past four seasons, around their name.
