'America's Got Talent' Backstage Report: Why 'Those Funny Little People' Might Go to the Finals

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 13th 2011 7:00AM
Those Funny Little PeopleA dozen of dynamic (and some not so dynamic) acts appeared in the first quarter-finals on 'America's Got Talent' last night. 'Miami All-Stars' is arguably the best dance group that's ever appeared on the show while 'Sandou Trio Russian Bar' performed a death-defying act that served as a memorable show-stopper.

But it's 'Those Funny Little People' that may stand the best chance of advancing to the next round. Why, you ask? The over-sized puppets managed to not only entertain with their homages to 'Singin' in the Rain' and 'It's Raining Men,' but, perhaps more importantly, the group, which was supported by judge Howie Mandel, truly got under the skin of judge Piers Morgan.

And while viewers watch 'AGT' to see the next million-dollar act get discovered they also tune in to watch the bickering between Morgan, Mandel and fellow judge Sharon Osbourne.

AOL TV was on the scene at the show's taping in Hollywood last night and spoke to the judges after the show about the funny big effect that 'Those Funny Little People' have on Morgan.

Cedric the Entertainer previews 'It's Worth What?' on 'The Talk'Anyone wondering what Cedric the Entertainer's new game show 'It's Worth What?' will actually look like got a preview Tuesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). Cedric gave the ladies a preview, challenging them to guess the prices of several items that could either be junk or expensive antiques.

Cedric had with him two items -- a black velvet and white taffeta gown once worn by Princess Diana for a charity event in 1985, and an acoustic guitar signed by Elvis Presley. The hosts were charged with figuring out which item was worth more. Leah Remini was the tie-breaker, and went with the guitar.

The signed guitar was worth $30,000, a lot of money to be sure. But the dress was worth twice as much. Sharon Osbourne, who had voted for the dress, was not happy. Hopefully the contestants on Tuesday's 'Worth What?' premiere will be less contentious.

Piers Morgan Remembers His Rough First Meeting With Sharon Osbourne (VIDEO)

Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne on 'The Talk'Dainty. Shy. Well-heeled. These are descriptions that do not apply to Sharon Osbourne. Just ask Piers Morgan, who described his first meeting with Osbourne Monday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). The two work together as judges on 'America's Got Talent', but according to Morgan, Jerry Springer needed to be led away from the scene of their first meeting for fear it might scar him emotionally.

The first meeting was a dinner, and Morgan said Osbourne had had a glass of wine or two, and ended up sneaking up behind him. "It ended up with her coming up behind me," he said, "in front of all these executives from NBC, strangling me, trying to kill me, and screaming, 'You're just a Simon Cowell wannabe.'"

Sharon Osbourne Has a Gross Theory About Lindsay Lohan's Positive Alcohol Test (VIDEO)

Sharon Osbourne talks about Lindsay Lohan on 'The Talk''Lindsay Lohan was supposed to sit down with Matt Lauer of 'Today' on Tuesday for an interview, but it got called off. Then came the story that Lohan had failed a urine test, which came up positive for alcohol but was otherwise clean. Thursday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) Sharon Osbourne expressed sympathy for Lauer having flown 3,000 miles for an interview that was canceled. But she also had an excuse for Lohan, albeit a convoluted one.

Osbourne joked that she thought Lohan's "wee wee" was tainted by a feminine hygiene product. "I don't think she was drinking," said Osbroune. "I think she was cleaning her ... with a feminine wipe. They have alcohol on them."

Around that time, Osbourne said she had someone in her ear telling her "enough about Lindsay Lohan." Which is OK, because her co-hosts needed a minute to catch their breath from laughing.

Sharon Osbourne Wants to Lick Shemar Moore (VIDEO)

Shemar Moore on 'The Talk'Shemar Moore caused a bit of a stir with Sharon Osbourne, not to mention Holly Robinson Peete's mother, when he appeared on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) Tuesday. Moore, who plays FBI agent Derek Morgan on 'Criminal Minds,' made the cover of Maximum Fitness magazine, appearing without a shirt. He joked that he wasn't in that kind of shape at the moment, but then displayed his abs anyway.

That's what made Osbourne swoon. "You need a really good licking," she said. When Moore reminded her she was married, Osbourne said she couldn't help it if Moore made her feel "funny in certain places."

On The Scene: Wild Cards Return to 'America's Got Talent'

by Michael Maloney, posted Aug 18th 2010 8:32AM
America's Got TalentIf you were bummed out that dancers Anna and Patryk, rapper CJ Dipper, comic Doogie Horner and others didn't advance to the next round on 'America's Got Talent' then last night's episode was for you! A total of 12 former acts returned to the program and attempted to re-win America's votes.

Each of the show's three judges were allowed to bring back four acts, which likely meant that at least four routines weren't as likely to get a strike from Piers Morgan, who, let's face it, admits that he's wrong as often as Fonzie does.

"He was buzzing every act that wasn't his," Sharon Osbourne said after taping of Morgan's trigger finger. "That's very disrespectful to the artist. Unless I really think they should be buzzed, I won't do it."

Did Howie Mandel give Harmonica Pierre a strike because he was Morgan's candidate?

"I didn't buzz Pierre," clarifies Mandel, who tapped his 'X' button more to send a message to his fellow judge. (The plan was for Osbourne to hit hers, too.) "That was for Piers -- not Pierre. They took it off. As a joke, I thought Sharon would follow me. Then, she threw me under the bus -- on live TV! I hope it didn't throw Pierre."

On the Scene: 'America's Got Talent' Second Twelve Acts

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 21st 2010 9:25AM
America's Got Talent Forget about replacing Larry King. After the number of times he hit the strike button last night on 'America's Got Talent,' Piers Morgan could take over for Simon Cowell on 'American Idol.'

The strike-happy Morgan got off to an early start rejecting groups when he gave an "X" to Cheer SF, the San Francisco-based cheer leading team. Iron Horse, Strongman, Ronith -- and even a girl in the audience named Lindsay, who sang a Tina Turner song during the commercial break -- also each received an "X" from Piers.

"Piers can suck it!" a friend of Lindsay's said after getting a hold of the warm-up guy's microphone.

"Fair enough," Morgan told TV Squad after taping. "If you dish it out, you've got to take it. That's fine. I like people who come back at me. It's good. It shows strength of character."

(Piers, we'll keeping this in mind when we ask you for a Larry King update, cool?)

As for why all the buzzer action tonight, Morgan says, "I thought it was necessary. A few of the acts looked pretty ridiculous. They were only there because of Howie Mandel. He's the 'Ronith' of judges."

Sharon Osbourne revealed on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' that she jokingly threatens to lick fellow 'America's Got Talent' judge Howie Mandel as a form of punishment. Mandel is a notorious germaphobe, and recently replaced David Hasselhoff as a judge on the talent show.

Regis Philbin tries to start trouble by suggesting that Osbourne should lick Mandel's head as a "friendly gesture." But little does Philbin know, Osbourne has already considered using her tongue as a weapon against Mandel. "Howie loves to talk. And when he talks and talks, I say, 'Howie, if you don't stop, I'm going to lick you,'" Osbourne said.

Who Needs Celebs? NBC Bringing Back the Original 'Apprentice'

Ta ta disgraced governors. See ya, washed-up rock stars.

According to the TheWrap, NBC is bringing back the celeb-free version of 'The Apprentice' for the first time since 2007, with a recession-era twist: "Real people" contestants who've been hit hard by the bad economy will get a chance to reverse their fortunes by wowing boss Donald Trump.

The return of the original premise has been rumored for some time. Trump recently declared himself all for it, telling reporters, "I will be very involved if they bring back regular 'Apprentice,'" he said. "I'd be very involved in the casting again."

The Fall of 'The Apprentice'

by Stephanie Earp, posted Mar 16th 2010 5:58PM

While watching the two-hour (read: interminable) debut of 'The Celebrity Apprentice' on Sunday night, I was trying to figure out if Cyndi Lauper is out of this show's league, or vice versa. Maybe I'm thinking about leagues because of all the previews for the new Jay Baruchel movie, but for some reason that's how the question phrased itself in my head. Has Cyndi Lauper really sunk this low?

'The Apprentice' used to be an A-list show when it debuted in 2004. Remember? It was a serious competitive reality show that was nominated for Emmys against shows like 'Survivor' and 'The Amazing Race', and for cinematography -- in other words, the gorgeous New York skyline shots that peppered the episodes. Back then, people watched the show and compared the tasks and the competitors to their own workplace.

Ozzy Osbourne Meets Sharon After a Cocaine Binge (VIDEO)

George Lopez, Ozzy Osbourne, CocaineOzzy Osbourne is such a dope. On 'George Lopez' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS), he talked about meeting wife Sharon Osbourne for the first time.

It's hard to de-code his Ozzy-speech, but near as we can tell, he was supposed to give her an envelope full of money, but bought cocaine with the cash instead. He laughs, George Lopez laughs, the audience laughs ... ha ha, that's so funny.

Lopez and the audience were too polite to say what they really thought, but we'll say it here: "You're such a fool, Ozzy!"

Business mogul Donald Trump will do the firing once again, aided by son Donald Trump Jr., daughter Ivanka Trump and long-time adviser George H. Ross on this third season of 'Celebrity Apprentice.' The teams, incidentally, are divided by sex.

The action starts 9 PM ET Sunday on NBC. Before then, we've studied the field and calibrated who the likely winner will be.

Susan Boyle is going to Dancing with the Stars

susan_boyle_singingEverybody's favorite singing newcomer, England's Susan Boyle, is going to appear on Dancing With the Stars this week. She will not be doing the samba or the quick step. Susan will be singing, promoting her upcoming CD, I Dreamed A Dream, in stores on November 24.

Luckily for Susan, Sharon Osbourne will not be on the show. Or maybe it's lucky for Sharon because after the horrible things she said about SB, Susan would probably deck her if she had the chance. Last week, while on Sirius radio, Sharon was compelled to share her opinion of Susan's sudden success.
