During the America’s Got Talent Dallas auditions, Sharon Osbourne got
upset over how cruel Piers Morgan was being to some of the younger
contestants, and she stormed off the stage. During the America’s Got
Talent Chicago auditions, it was David Hasselhoff’s turn to throw a fit
and leave the stage.
During an audition by Boy Shakira, a male impersonator of Shakira, David Hasselhoff hit his buzzer almost immediately. When asked for his vote, Hasselhoff said “Absolutely 100% no.” However, Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan were entertained and sent Boy Shakira through to the next round.
An agitated David Hasselhoff got up and went back stage to his dressing room. Piers Morgan followed him and said “one hundred percent entertaining gold, Boy Shakira.” To which, Hasselhoff responded “Are you sitting on the same stage as me? Oh my god! The world has gone mad!” Hasselhoff also expressed his displeasure to producers and pushed away a camera.
The judges also sent martial artist group Sideswipe, country singer Jason Pritchett, ventriloquist Terry Fator, beatboxer Butterscotch, singer Cas Haley, dance group 2nd Story Guys, singing group The Fault Line, magician Kevin James, eighty year old singer Ada Lynn, and dancer Kashif through to the next round.
The judges rejected singer Consuelo Campbell, singer Francisse Elaine, piano player John England, mime and comedian Mr. Heart and Soul, musician Charlie King, dance group Coolaid, burlesque dancers Hot Pink Feathers, and butt breaker Alex Mooney.
