America’s Got Talent
British cutie Cher Lloyd, who competed against One Direction on the U.K. version 'X Factor,' made her U.S. TV debut last night (July 25) on 'America's Got Talent.' Lloyd performed her breakthrough single, the more-addictive-than-street-drugs 'Want U Back,' and brought the diner motif, complete with stools, a counter, ice cream sundaes, milkshakes and a busboy, from the video along with her.
During last night's round of 'America's Got Talent' auditions in Austin, we met Eric and Olivia, who together sound more like a clothing line, but are actually musicians. Admit it: You were thinking the same thing.
In a reminder that you can't always judge a book by its cover, a contestant named Andrew De Leon appeared on 'America's Got Talent' auditions last night looking like a Marilyn Manson clone but ended up belting out opera music, winning over the judges and bringing some audience members to tears.
The new season of 'America's Got Talent' is merely two days old and it's already making a splash, from the critical raves Howard Stern earned as a judge to some of the actual talent America is showcasing on the boob tube. One of last night's (May 15) standouts was Tim Hockenberry, a middle-aged gent from upstate New York who delivered a gritty and emotionally impactful rendition of Joe Cocker's 'You Are So Beautiful.' It was, in a word, beautiful.
Howard Stern takes his gig as a judge on 'America's Got Talent' seriously -- and during last night's debut (May 14), the radio host earned rave reviews. We're not shocked. Stern is the best thing that could have happened to the show, as his frank and candid commentary is just what a show like 'AGT' needs!
Jorge Narvaez and his daughter Alexa stole the hearts of everyone in the audience and on the judges' panel on 'America's Got Talent.' Jorge, clutching a guitar, introduced the world to his tiny tyke in footage of her getting a piggyback ride from her pops and telling cameras, "My daddy is my favorite singer in the whole entire universe!"
