After eight seasons, it’s no longer a question whether America’s Got Talent. (American Idol, and The Voice, and The X-Factor also kind of answered that already.) But what makes NBC’s summer staple so special is that singing’s only one among many talents that can be displayed. Though host Nick Cannon arguably gave the night’s best performance by pretending to be a contestant named Larry the Mime who went off on the judges and audience (“Boo yourself!”), there were many great acts actually eligible for the million dollar prize. And sure, a few of them were singers — but you can find people just like them on any other reality competition. Here are 5 of the best premiere auditions from acts that didn’t just hit the right notes: READ FULL STORY
Tag: Nick Cannon (1-6 of 6)
Nick Cannon stirred things up on Instagram last week by posing for photos in which he wore skin-lightening makeup. Captions for the photos indicated that Cannon was playing a white character called “Connor Smallnut.”
Cannon went on Good Morning America this morning to talk about the stunt, which he did to promote his upcoming album — his first in over 10 years — which is titled White People Party Music.
“It was one of those things, obviously, even when naming my album title and doing the character, I knew it would spark some controversy,” Cannon said. “But I feel like it’s a conversation that’s needed because we all have differences, we embrace it.”

Nick Cannon and Amanda Bynes both found fame on Nickelodeon’s All That, but their careers have taken drastically different turns since, with Cannon hosting America’s Got Talent and marrying superstar singer Mariah Carey and Bynes retiring from acting and lashing out with a series of arrests and bizarre tweets.
But Cannon hasn’t forgotten about his former castmate, and he’s often asked about her in interviews, given her recent involuntary psychiatric hold following one of those arrests. He posted an open letter to his “sister” online Wednesday, trying to explain to the public the pressures child stars face and how Bynes’ behavior might look “crazy” to some but makes total sense to him.

Mel B’s laugh is infectious. Whenever I felt my interest in this show waning, all she had to do was let out a loud, deep, howl and I was back in. Heidi Klum continues to prove that she’s adorable and lovable. Both new judges have great chemistry with the guys. Everyone seems like friends and everyone’s having fun.
Now, I have to mention Howie. READ FULL STORY
