If you’re like me and never watched any previous seasons of this show don’t worry, you don’t need any back story or previous knowledge of the show…its a fun show, basically it’s just an over glorified version of the Gong Show boasting a panel of three judges consisting of Stern, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne and is hosted by Nick Cannon (Mr. Mariah Carey).
It features contestants performing everything from dance, song, and even being launched from a cannon! With controversy looming with a recent contestant who claimed he was an injured war vet who stuttered due to brain trauma and found he was able to overcome this by singing. Unfortunately as touching as it sounded it was just a lie. No word yet if the contestant was disqualified or not, but Stern is trying to get him to come on to his Sirius/XM morning radio show. I’ll let you know what happens.
Besides this the show is actually quite interesting and captivating.
America's Got Talent airs on NBC Mondays and Tuesdays @9pm
