'America's Got Talent' Backstage Report: Should Piers Morgan's Buzzer Be Silenced?

GymkanaTake it from someone who's sat in the audience at 'America's Got Talent' -- the judges' buzzers sound even louder in person. So when trigger-happy judge Piers Morgan hits that red "X" button performers can understandably become rattled.
