If you don’t know the story, Timothy Poe faked being a war hero when he auditioned before Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne on America’s Got Talent.
The verdict is out as to whether he was also faking a stutter brought on by battle wounds. America and the judges loved his story when he auditioned for the show, and it turns out, he was actually a pretty good singer. But when it got out that he lied, people got mad.

America’s Got Talent premieres tonight, with shock jock Howard Stern coming on as the newest host of the prime time TV show. Some are a bit concerned that the outspoken DJ will not be a good fit for the family friendly show, but Stern has come out publicly promising to keep it clean for the kiddos.

The season premiere of America’s Got Talent was last night and viewers saw everything from a corny dancer and a medieval sword fight to two guys falling off stage. Aside from the total misses, the show packed in a ton of more than worthy acts. Will this season of America’s Got Talent be just as hot as X Factor? If ratings mean anything, all signs point to yes. Read on for the details!
We’ve been waiting all season to find out who would be the winner on NBC’s America’s Got Talent and last night we got an answer. Blues singer Michael Grimm took home the big prize of $1 million… and some viewers don’t think he deserved to win.
There is no doubt that the Heath Ledger-esque Michael Grimm has talent, but was he the most talented performer on the show? That is debatable (check out the video below to decide for yourself). He has a strong, raspy voice and a heartfelt story about wanting to help his family recover from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, but was he the most talented? Jackie Evancho, a 10-year-old opera singer who seemed to be the front runner got the world’s attention from the moment she opened her mouth. Shortly after, her videos went viral on the web.
Oh boy... it’s official: After hearing names like Anderson Cooper, Katie Couric and even Oprah Winfrey (really?!) as potential candidates for Larry King’s replacement, it has been announced that British television host Piers Morgan will fill Old Man Winter's role starting in January 2011. According to CNN today, Morgan, 45, a former British tabloid newspaper editor and current judge on America’s Got Talent, will take over when Larry King retires from CNN's Larry King Live after a notorious 25-year run. So what is Morgan's plan for the show? He told The Hollywood Reporter that he plans to bring "journalistic rigor" to the job and that he’d like one of his first interviews to be Barack Obama, followed by "Mel Gibson or Lindsay Lohan or whoever is in the news who is relevant and current." Good plan for a current events show, we think. We like how you think outside the box, Piers.Read More
Recently on America's Got Talent, the ineffable Sharon Osbourne declared with aplomb that the creature known to the world as Prince Poppycock is, indeed, the Male Lady Gaga. That's weird, I thought Lady Gaga was the the male Lady Gaga. Price Poppycock, a character created John Andrew Quale, describes himself as a "roguish operatic dandy." Of course he does. He shot to fame recently when he took season five of America's Got Talent by storm with his over the top theatrics, costumes and bombastic stage presence. And last night, his popularity was confirmed when he was announced as one of the final four contestants. Other finalists include soul singer Michael Grimm, child opera sensation Jackie Evancho and glow-in-the-dark dance crew Fighting Gravity.Read More
