Siro-A “America’s Got Talent” Video: Piers Morgan Uses Golden Buzzer For Virtual Performance Group — WATCH!
Piers Morgan returned to “America’s Got Talent” on Tuesday, and used the new Golden Buzzer for Siro-A. Check out the video below!
Morgan was one of the original judges of the NBC competition, appearing on the series’ panel from 2006’s season 1 through season 6 in 2011. He was replaced by current judge Howard Stern, and now was asked back by Mel B for a one episode-appearance as a guest judge. As Gossip Cop has reported, each of the current judges selected one celebrity pal this season to help with the “Judge Cuts” round.
The guest judge gets the opportunity to use the Golden Buzzer, introduced for the milestone 10th season, exactly once, sending that act straight to the live shows at Radio City Music Hall, regardless of how the rest of the panel feels. For Morgan, who was quite vocal about not liking certain acts throughout the first half of the two-hour broadcast, he was finally blown away by Siro-A, a performance group that combines visual arts and virtual reality.
Kicking off the feedback, Howard Stern told the group, “If there’s a definition of stepping up, you just did it.” And Heidi Klum declared, “It’s very original, it’s modern, it’s cool.” But Morgan was booed when he started out by saying stone-faced, “I gotta say, I didn’t like it.”
He then added, “I didn’t like it because I absolutely loved it. I did this job for six years on ‘America’s Got Talent’ and I was trying to think of any act that I’ve seen that had the kind of originality and creativity, and I honestly couldn’t think of one that quite rivals the level you’re already at.”
Morgan pointed out the Golden Buzzer in front of him, and asked the group if they considered themselves worthy of his one-and-only push. Naturally, they thought so, and Morgan then told the contestants, “Well, you would be right to think that, because you’re getting the Golden Buzzer.”
As per usual, confetti burst out onto the stage after he hit the buzzer, and Morgan told quite seriously told Siro-A, “Every judge here obviously liked what you did, but you guys have a very good chance of winning ‘America’s Got Talent.'” He went on to tell the regular judges, “It’s exiting when you see something like that appear, and you can imagine two or three years now being in Vegas [and seeing them].” Watch the video below, and tell us what you think!
