'America's Got Talent' Backstage Report: Did Piers Morgan Buzz a Little Girl Because of Nick Cannon's Dare?

The audience at home mostly has the final say on whether or not an act progresses to the next round on 'America's Got Talent,' but a strike ("X") from the judges is still pretty much the kiss of death for a competitor. None of the six performers/acts from Tuesday night that received a dreaded red buzz from judges Piers Morgan (who gave five) and Howie Mandel (who gave one) are advancing to the semi-finals. The lucky ones that did advance include dancer Beth Ann Robinson, bicyclist Matt Willheim, circus performers Gymkana and singer Kevin Colis. Morgan pretty much sealed the fate of agile tumbler Breena Bell when he gave her a strike on Tuesday's show. Why'd he do it? http://www.aoltv.com/2011/08/11/americas-got-talent-backstage-report-did-piers-morgan-buzz-a/

Rebecca Black performs 'Friday' on 'America's Got Talent' (VIDEO)

Most contestants on 'America's Got Talent' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC) can only dream of having the kind of overnight success that singer Rebecca Black has enjoyed thanks to her earworm single 'Friday' -- but does she actually have talent? The jury's still split on that one, and there was nothing particularly spectacular about her vocals on stage, but the kid seems determined to have her fifteen minutes of fame no matter what the haters say, and why not? If people keep buying, Black will keep selling. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/08/11/rebecca-black-performs-friday-on-americas-got-talent-video/

'America's Got Talent': Four advance, Wild Cards announced

This week we had the 12 YouTube acts on "America's Got Talent." I read a lot of comments last night that they didn't think it was that strong. I really thought it was - no one act blew me completely away, but it was all of their first time doing this show. I just thought it was really strong top to bottom, which you cannot say about any other quarterfinals nights.Anyway, the first group brought down is Gymkana and Powerhouse, the show choir. Gymkana is much stronger, I hope they advance. And they do! Excellent.I shall not be recapping the "Chocolate Rain" performance by Tay Zonday, other than to say that his smile will haunt my dreams. Pure nightmare fuel.Now it's Keenan Cahill, the kid who became famous for lip-syncing "Teenage Dream." Yeah, bleep bleep bleep.And now it's OK Go. Oh my god, how many people are ON this show tonight?!Back to results, finally. TNC... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/08/americas-got-talent-four-advance-wild-cards-announced.html

VIDEO: A Choir That Inspired Glee Performs on America's Got Talent

The Powerhouse Choir from John Burroughs High School in Burbank, Calif., performed during the YouTube round of America's Got Talent auditions. Before their shaky performance of Katy Perry's "Firework," one of them talked about how this troupe inspired Glee (and indeed, the show has been shot at John Burroughs). She also noted the choir members' tendency to sing "all day, every day" and be told to shut up by their non-singing friends. Ha, that's perfect... http://www.tvguide.com/News/Powerhouse-Americas-Got-Talent-1036273.aspx?rss=breakingnews

Real Glee Club Brings Fireworks to 'America's Got Talent' (VIDEO)

It obviously takes a lot to light Howie Mandel's night like the Fourth of July on 'America's Got Talent,' (Tues., 9PM ET on NBC) because apparently a Glee Club full of snazzily dressed teenagers dancing around to Katy Perry just doesn't cut it. And sure, maybe towards the end, the group was getting a little -- dare we say it? -- pitchy, but those dance moves and harmonies were nothing to sniff at; they used pyrotechnics, for crying out loud! http://www.aoltv.com/2011/08/10/real-glee-club-firework-americas-got-talent-video/
