Well, this is awkward. Ira the puppet, you may recall him from earlier this year on America's Got Talent, is back and he has not given up on his dreams of running off into the sunset with Mel B. And Mel B has not given up on being unimpressed. Never change, Mel.
When we last saw Ira, he sang "You Are So Beautiful" to Mel and got a kiss from the Spice Girl—but that was it, just a kiss. She gave him a big, fat "No." And now he's back, with his puppet mom, for the Judge Cuts round.
Will Mel change her tune? Will Ira impress guest judge Michael Bublé? Ira breaks out "Let's Get It On" and all bets are off.
When we caught up with host Nick Cannon earlier this summer, he called this season the most extreme yet. Mel agreed. "There's just a lot of really fun stuff, from the crazy to the actual really talented to the wacko," she said. "It's just a really interesting, fun family show. It's the 10 year anniversary so they really souped it all up and it's good!"
This will likely be the last season you see Mel, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Howard Stern sitting alongside each other at the judges table. Stern took to his radio show to announce season 10 would be his last
"I'm going through my own career evaluation right now…In all seriousness, I've told you, I'm just too f--king busy…something's got to give," Stern said. "NBC's already asked me what my intentions are for next year, whether or not I'd come back, I kind of have told them I think this is my last season. Not I think, this is my last season."
America's Got Talent airs Tuesdays, 8 p.m. on NBC.
