Howie Mandel gives harsh criticism to young 'AGT' singer and Twitter has some thoughts

Yahoo Entertainment 02 September, 2021 - 08:50am

YouTuber Madilyn Bailey, who has more than 8.5 million subscribers on her YT channel, originally impressed the judges during her audition, when she sang a song made up of hate comments. Despite disappointing the judges with a cover of Sia's "Titanium" during the quarterfinals, Madilyn narrowly escaped elimination when Howie and Simon Cowell, along with America's live "Instant Save" votes, sent her on to the next round.

On Tuesday, the 28-year-old YouTuber went back to what worked the first time and sang another original song, this time dedicated to her late grandmother. However, Howie just wasn't quite feeling it.

As Howie attempted to form his thoughts, the judge awkwardly stated, "OK, Madison, listen. You're very good, that was kind of touching. I'm going to be totally honest, you're a very lucky girl that I think, lady, woman, person … that America is voting and not for me. I didn't think that was anything. I thought you were in the same lane as Tory." Boos from the audience began to take over as Howie finished his thought, saying, "I think you're a good singer. I responded to you. I'm incredibly disappointed. I responded to you in your audition, when you sang those mean tweets. I thought that was quirky, funny, inventive. And now, I don't think this was anything, to be honest with you."

Viewers on Twitter, who loved Madilyn's performance, did not appreciate Howie's harsh criticism. In fact, one person described his insult as "absolutely inexcusable."

.@howiemandel #AGT Howie, I’ve loved you for years!! But, I must say that I think your comments tonight to Madilyn Bailey were quite unnecessary and way off the mark. It even sounded a bit rude. You could have phrased it better.

Meanwhile, Simon, who is normally the mean one, agreed with the viewers.

"Am I allowed to say 'ass' on American TV," asked Simon. After receiving confirmation, Simon added, "OK, good, because Howie, you're talking out of it."

Simon then told the singer, "Madilyn, good for you, because that's exactly what you want people to do in a semifinal – be true to who you are. You are someone who writes their own material and, you know what, you took the criticism so well and so graciously through this competition and realized the opportunity it's given you. And now, on the biggest show on American TV, on a live show in the semifinals, you got the chance to sing your own song, which was beautiful with that beautiful package. I'm so proud of you. I have so much respect for you. Do not listen to a single word Howie Mandel said."

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The U.S. Supreme Court refused on Wednesday to block a Texas ban on abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, dealing a major blow to abortion rights by leaving in place a state law that prohibits the vast majority of abortions. The decision is a major milestone in the fight over abortion, as opponents have sought for decades to roll back access to the procedure. By a 5-4 vote, the justices denied an emergency request by abortion and women's health providers for an injunction on enforcement of the ban, which took effect early on Wednesday, while litigation continues.

Watch Howie Mandel's Daughter CRASH His AGT Interview

Entertainment Tonight 02 September, 2021 - 08:50am

One of the most shocking 'AGT' elimination nights ever: 'I'm going to throw up!'

Yahoo Entertainment 02 September, 2021 - 08:50am

When host Terry Crews announced the three acts in danger of going home — powerhouse singer (and judge Sofia Vergara’s Golden Buzzer pick) Jimmie Herrod, Police Academy impressionist Michael Winslow, and Terry’s Golden Buzzer act, the World Taekwondo Demonstration Team — the studio audience audibly gasped. Simon Cowell, in an incredibly rare moment for him, was rendered speechless, and Sofia exclaimed, “What happened? What happened?”

Not only did Jimmie get the coveted show-closing “pimp spot” on Tuesday’s episode, but he'd received gushing praise from all of the judges that night. Simon called him an “amazing, amazing singer” and described his performance as a “master class.” Heidi Klum quipped, “I know we were all waiting for Kanye’s album to drop, but I'm waiting for your album to drop!” And Howie Mandel even proclaimed, “You're by far the best singer in this competition. What you do is perfection. … You could win this whole thing.” To see Jimmie in danger was downright bizarre.

While viewers were awaiting the result of America’s real-time Instant Save live vote (which briefly showed Jimmie in the lead and World Taekwondo trailing behind), there was yet another shocker — when Terry continued to read the results and summoned marginally talented magician Dustin Tavella (whose pandering family-man schtick has frankly gotten old) and crooning child prodigy Peter Rosalita. When Terry announced that it was Dustin who’d made it through instead of golden boy Peter, even Dustin admitted, “I feel kind of bad,” knowing that this was probably not the result that the judges had wanted.

Thankfully, Jimmie scraped through after the live vote. Sofia was relieved, exclaiming, “I'm going to throw up! I can't believe it! Why did I go through this tonight? You deserve to be here. I don't know what happened to America.” Simon additionally told Jimmie, “You are a brilliant, brilliant, brilliant singer, and the final needs you.”

After that nail-biter, the judges saved the World Taekwondo Demonstration Team (despite the fact that they’d probably received the fewest Instant Save votes), which meant it was time to say goodbye to Michael Winslow. Michael, arguably the most famous and successful contestant to ever compete on AGT, really just needed the national exposure and career boost after taking an extended hiatus from the spotlight, so he seemed at peace with his fate. Even before Terry announced the result, he’d told the panel, “No matter what happens, this has been a fantastic voyage and a journey for me.”

As for the other eliminees, they were wild-card act Beyond Belief Dance Company, Broadway singer Tory Vagasy, boy band Korean Soul, and singer-songwriter Madilyn Bailey, while standup comedian Gina Brillon, teen aerialist Aidan Bryant, and Dustin Tavella advanced. Next week’s second semifinals round of Season 16 is also packed with talent, and this result proved no one is safe, so next week may also be shocking — albeit not on this week’s level. See you then.
