Kids did the darnedest things on TV this week. High school student Oscar pursued an affair with both mother and daughter on 90210. Little ones on Parenthood and One Tree Hill got confusing answers to their inquiries about sex. Jimmy Johnson rallied against youth on Survivor: Nicaragua. Eminem and Vince acted like children on Entourage. And precious Jackie Evancho, who came in second on America's Got Talent, occupies the first position in America's heart. 12. Creepiest Character: There are a many lecherous lads on 90210 this season, but Oscar, Ivy's family friend who's in town to do a postgraduate year at West Bev, won the premiere episode's ick-off. After establishing that the horndog is hot for Ivy, we learn that he's also been having a secret affair with Laurel, aka Ivy's mom. 11. Worst Question: It's just another innocent day at the park on Parenthood until precocious Sydney asks parents Julia and Joel if she came out of a vagina. Scared by her question (she's only 6!) and her language, Joel tries to kill her interest by explaining that everyone comes out of a vagina. Which she announces in full voice to her playmates when she returns to the slide. To Read More Click Here .

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the America's Got Talent finale. Read at your own risk.] On America's Got Talent, the final four vied for $1 million on the Season 5 finale: 10-year-old opera-singing prodigy Jackie Evancho, black-light illusion dance group Fighting Gravity, soulful singer/musician Michael Grimm and baroque dandy opera singer Prince Poppycock. Each contestant performed "with one of their heroes," as host Nick Cannon put it. The night kicked off with Poppycock, looking like an Elizabethan acid trip, as usual. He performed "Last Dance" with disco queen Donna Summer, and it was an oddly lifeless rendition of the 1978 hit. To Read More Click here .
To quote America's Got Talent's eloquent host Nick Cannon, 'It's the finals man!Ã¢â¬Â Yes, it's come to this, PopWatchers. Four acts are left in the running, each hoping for a career on the Vegas strip and beyond. Piers did his best Simon Cowell impression, crushing the dreams of Prince Poppycock (who he claimed he blew it) and Fighting Gravity, while praising Jackie Evancho as the greatest thing since DVR. But the Prince didn't seem discouraged. In a post-show interview with People, he described the dreaded XÂ he received from Piers as simply a means to create tension, calling the judge a big ninny. Â Point Poppycock? Prince Poppycock's performance was very straightforward, so I have to agree with Piers' assessment that it was less fun than his previous performances. Will America still embrace a serious Poppycock? And If you take away his elaborate costumes and makeup, is he as good of a singer as Jackie Evancho? To Read More Click Here .
Three vastly different singers and a special-effects performing arts group got votes - enough of them to advance to the finals of America's Got Talent. The final four who will vie for $1 million on next week's finale are 10-year-old opera-singing prodigy Jackie Evancho, a black-light illusion dance group of Virginia Tech fraternity brothers called Fighting Gravity, soulful singer and musician Michael Grimm, and baroque dandy opera singer known as Prince Poppycock. The four acts emerged from the Top 10 with the most viewer votes on Wednesdays' elimination episode. Source Here
Even though Michael Grimm was awarded his spot in the first half of the "America's Got Talent" results show, he was really the only finalist in question, right? We were a bit surprised they actually didn't hold his group until last, to be honest. The Michael Grasso vs. Prince Poppycock, Jackie Evancho vs. Anna and Patryk and Fighting Gravity vs. Studio One matchups were hardly surprises, right? I did feel a little bad for the Jeremy Vanschoonhoven and Christina & Ali fake-out, though when I initially thought one of them advanced, I was quite surprised. To Read More Click Here .

On "America's Got Talent," there is a lot of pressure to get bigger and and flashier every week. Nobody feels that pressure more than Michael Grasso, the first magician to make the "AGT" finals. Grasso was sent home during Las Vegas week, but he was brought back as a Wild Card. "I know what it's like to go home and I know what it's like to make it to the Top 10," laughs Grasso. "I'm the first magician to make it to the Top 10, so it's a dream come true." "For a magician, it's very hard and it's very expensive," he continues. "It's not like a singer where you can just come up with a new song. You have to come up with a bigger illusion and every act you do has to basically be a 'closer.' It's very difficult and the timeframe of practice is getting shorter and shorter." To Read More Click Here .

Patriotism was alive and well on America's Got Talent last night. I guess when America is deciding your fate, it can't hurt to pay a little respect to our founding fathers. Prince Poppycock's medley of songs sort of felt like a failed audition from the bicentennial (it even incorporated his own mini U.S. Capitol), but I still found myself rewinding his performance and watching it again. He's unlike anyone else in the competition - I'm not sure if that's reason enough to win, but it's certainly reason enough to watch. Check him out below. To Read More Click Here .
