Howard Stern Slams 'Annoying Howie Filibuster' On 'America's Got Talent': [ send to a friend ]
Howard Stern criticized fellow judge Howie Mandel this week on 'America's Got Talent' for pushing through contestants that didn't deserve to move forward.
This after Mandel wouldn't push the X on contestant Big Barry's rendition of Nina Simone's 'Feelin' Good'.
Mandel told the diminutive singer that while he wasn't a great singer, he was "an incredible novelty act" that he described as a cross between Bob Dylan and the Easter Bunny.
But Stern didn't agree and thought Mandel was taking away a chance from someone more deserving.
"The Howie filibuster is getting annoying to me, actually," Stern said. "I gotta tell you -- you know, Big Barry, this isn't about you. This is about Howie and this is about the apology you owe to Flo Jo's daughter, to Andrew De Leon, to all the people that could've gotten through instead of Big Barry, you ruined their chance!"
"Howie owes all those performers that could have had a shot on this stage: Barry, no offense to you, but you're not fun, you're not funny and you're not talented. It was a big waste of time."
"Girls, girls, behave!" interjected Sharon Osbourne, as host Nick Cannon advised the two should "go to your corners!"
