"America is obsessed with singers. This is supposed to be a variety show," tweeted one angry viewer, after six vocalists advanced to this season's top 10 finale.
On Wednesday, host Terry Crews pulled a mean-spirited switcharoo that even Simon Cowell wouldn’t attempt.
Many viewers tweeted that this was unfair, since the teen singer hadn’t been honest about why he'd withdrawn from the show.
“America, just sit quietly, listen, take it in," Howie said as he introduced his Golden Buzzer pick, spoken-word artist Brandon Leake.
“How did you manage to get the dream job you've always wanted, where you get to sit the entire time and someone else does all the work?” Ed O'Neill asked Sofia.
When Usama Siddiquee told some politically incorrect jokes about feminism Tuesday, judge Heidi Klum was not amused.
The Southern-belle entertainer, whose real name was Zavion Davenport, has died following a battle with scleroderma, pneumonia, and suspected kidney failure.
It all came down to a cute 8-year-old and her furry friends, and a straitjacketed muscle man who sets himself on fire and catches arrows with his bare hands.
This performance was very “test tube-conceived lovechild of Hedwig and Hulk Hogan performing inside a giant TRON video game” — which was probably exactly what the mullet man was going for.
'America’s Got Talent' has already been wildly unpredictable this season, so of course Wednesday's quarterfinals results were no exception.
"I have waited years for this. I love Simon, but I'm getting really used to this chair, buddy,” Kelly Clarkson joked Tuesday.
Simon red-X'd this campy duo at their first audition, but this week, they seemed to win him over.
Simon called this performance “genius.” And considering that he got his start in the music business playing a singing pooch named Wonderdog, he ought to know.
The legendary producer admits he wanted “some of the personal stuff” cut from 'David Foster: Off the Record,' but then realized that's "what makes a great documentary."
"I know what it is to have somebody taken from you," said Sofia Vergara, whose brother was murdered the same year that spoken-word artist Brandon Leake lost his 8-month-old sibling.
The 30-year-old singer’s new ballad, “Unknown,” was recorded in February but has taken on more emotional weight in light of the growing Black Lives Matter movement.
In different displays of brawn and bravery, two stereotype-busting 'AGT' contestants proved that strength comes in all shapes and sizes.
"My family is completely full of this horrific sickness, and I totally understand. And to be here tonight and to hear that song, for me, it gives me a lot of hope," Vergara told Nolan Neal.
“I’m so happy I did this show. It’s important to understand how important this art is,” Usher declared. “This is necessary. Let’s hear it for 'Songland,' man!”
Fans were "disgusted" by the ex-supermodel's dismissive treatment of Amanda LaCount, with several tweeters even calling Heidi "trash."
The 'Songland' judge struggled professionally and personally for years, but it wasn't until he started living his truth that he became one of the most successful country songwriters of all time.
"For me, music wasn’t really a choice; it was something that I knew I had to do because it was going to make me happy," said David Davis, whose dad once played for the Tennessee Volunteers and Miami Dolphins.
“I didn’t start off with a mission of ‘I’m going to be this queer superhero.’ ... I think if I just live my life, that’ll be a statement enough.”
