Chelsea Handler's Twitter Fight With Nick Cannon Gets Out of HandThe social networking service Twitter only lets you send 140 characters at a time. But in a way, those little messages can say so much more. And sometimes, things get out of hand.

Chelsea Handler
has been feuding on Twitter with actor Nick Cannon for a while now. To be fair, Chelsea started it -- when she mocked the fact that Nick was doing a comedy tour. "Who's going to provide the comedy?" she Tweeted. Nick said this in reply, slamming Chelsea's looks: "Chelsea Handler looks like she got hit in the face with a bag of nickels." Ouch!

The winner is annoubced on 'America's Got Talent'Southern soul singer Michael Grimm pulled a shocking upset by winning Season 5 of 'America's Got Talent' over front-runner Jackie Evancho, the 10-year-old opera singer from Pennsylvania.

"It's really still sinking in," Grimm told TV Squad after the show. "But I do want to thank America, 'America's Got Talent,' the judges and, most importantly, I want to thank God."

Prior to his victory, Grimm, an aspiring singer, had trouble getting record labels to consider him. They'd want to know how big his following was because they didn't have money to invest in him. "Well, now I have a little money and I have fans," he says gratefully.

"I haven't talked to my grandparents yet," he said. "But it's going to be an emotional moment."

"When you stand there and you see a guy who's never had a break in his life and he starts crying, you say, 'This was the right decision,'" judge Sharon Osbourne says about Grimm's victory.

America's Got Talent FinalistsPint-size opera singer Jackie Evancho and soul crooner Michael Grimm gave knockout performances in the season 5 finals of 'America's Got Talent.' But missteps from Fighting Gravity and Prince Poppycock may have hurt their chances of winning the competition show's million dollar prize.

Judge Piers Morgan stood by his decision to give Poppycock, an audience favorite, a strike.

"I have to be honest," Morgan told TV Squad. "I buzz when I think they can't progress any further. [Poppycock] blew it big time. He lost the humor that he had in his act. He's an OK [opera singer,] but opera is not his bag. When Jackie [Evancho] sang 'Ave Maria' it became a different kettle of fish altogether."

America's Got TalentDespite dark horses stepping up their games, there weren't any real surprises when the 'America's Got Talent' final 4 were revealed to be Prince Poppycock, Michael Grimm, Jackie Evancho and Fighting Gravity.

"The four that made it into the finals have kind of been the favorites the entire time," noted host Nick Cannon. "It's tough because of the great performances we had [in the Top 10.] But America chose the ones it felt like it always wanted to choose."

Is Cannon ever even tempted to read a name other than the one written on the card?

"No. I just hope I don't say the wrong name," Cannon laughed. "It's live TV so I have to focus on exactly what those cards say."

America's Got TalentHow great was the Season 5 Top 10 performance show of 'America's Got Talent?'

Judge Piers Morgan didn't even come close to hitting his buzzer. "Not once," host Nick Cannon says. "He had all positive things to say."

"I got to the end of the night and realized I've never been through a whole show without buzzing anyone before," Morgan told AOL TV Squad after taping. "I couldn't believe it. Any of these acts now will have a great career. This is the first time we've had that."

"All the acts rose to the occasion," judge Howie Mandel said. "What a show this Top 10 was. Can't we just have a Top 10 and go home?"

"I agree," judge Sharon Osbourne said. "They're all so different and they're all at the top of their game. How do you pick?"

The last five acts have been chosen as the finalists in 'America's Got Talent.' They include the physics-defying Fighting Gravity, magician Michael Grasso, stunt bicyclist Jeremy Vanshoonhoven and judges' favorite Jackie Evancho, the pint-sized opera singer.

Studio One Young Beast Society was selected as the last finalist by the judges over singer Alice Tan Ridley. Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne voted for the young dance group first making judge Howie Mandel's selection a moot one.

"I am so thrilled," Mandel told TV Squad after taping. "I love not being part of that decision. I don't want to be responsible for sending anyone home. Tonight, I got to sit back and be like the audience. At this point in the competition, all the talent is worthy of going through." (Mandel says he'll save what his choice would have been for his memoir.)

"There was no shadow of doubt in my mind," Osbourne said as to why she picked the dance troupe. "Alice has a really good fan base. She's popular. Her life will change for the better."

But in the case of singer Jackie Evancho and the 'America's Got Talent' judges, things just haven't been very suspenseful. The judges clearly loved the 10-year-old opera singer from the first second that they saw her.

Future Funk, America's Got Talent'America's Got Talent' threw a few curve balls at its audience on Wednesday night's results show. Traditionally, the show invites three to four acts up on stage and then host Nick Cannon announces which one will advance to the next round.

Lightning performers ArcAttack, magician Dan Sperry, the dance duo known as Future Funk and singer Kristina Young had every reason to think that at least one of them was going to the finals after they were called up to face the judges.

But Cannon shocked the crowd by saying that it was the end of the road for all four acts.

"I'd never seen that," said judge Piers Morgan after the program. "I had no idea it was going to happen."

'America's Got Talent': Who Will Be the First Finalists?Well, it's been a long road to make it to this point. But tonight on 'America's Got Talent' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC), we at last got to see the first batch of contestants who heading to the final round. However, there were some twists and turns along the way.

[Spoiler alert.]

The initial group of potential finalists consisted of: ArcAttack, Future Funk, Dan Sperry, and Christina Young. Host Nick Cannon stood at the side of the stage, and read from a card announcing the winner of this group. And the winner was ... none of them. "Wow," Nick said. "No one is moving on." That's the first time this has happened all season, and the judges looked shocked. "Is that real?" Howie Mandel asked. Yes; yes it was. The entire group was sent home.

[Spoiler alert.]

Based on tonight's performances, one man seems like a cinch to make to the next round. And that man is ... Prince Poppycock. The fairly bizarre singer -- who is best described as sort of a "glam rock opera diva" (or something), was able to pull off a fairly incredible rendition of the song 'Bohemian Rhapsody.'

The duo's paso doble to Lady Gaga's 'Paparazzi' (butchered performed by Kate Gosselin last season on 'Dancing With the Stars') earned positive remarks from the judges.

But the night belonged to the final act of the evening -- Prince Poppycock's smashing operatic rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody -- brought down the house.

"Poppycock is amazing," raved judge Piers Morgan. "He's got an incredibly creative brain. He took a massive song by Freddie Mercury and did it brilliantly. He brought down the house. He's camp, fun, brilliant...he's got everything you want in a contestant at this stage of the game."

Mandel's decision to side with Michael and Ashleigh had everything to do with talent and nothing to do with the fact that his on-air nemesis Morgan had championed the harmonica player.

"First, I apologized to Pierre for buzzing him on Tuesday's show," Mandel told TV Squad after the results show broadcast. (Mandel hitting the strike button at the top of the harmonica player's act was meant for Morgan, who kept buzzing the acts that Mandel and Osbourne had invited back to the show.)
