Who Won Season 10 of America's Got Talent?

America's got some serious new talent! Tonight's two-hour finale slowly took the top ten acts and whittled them down to five, including mentalist Oz Pearlman, comedian Drew Lynch, professional regurgitator The Professional Regurgitator (also known as Stevie Starr), R&B duo the Craig Lewis Band, and ventriloquist Paul Zerdin. In the end, it was down to Lynch and Zerdin, but only one act could win the million dollars and show on the Vegas strip. That act was... Paul Zerdin!  Host Nick Cannon revealed that there was only a 1% difference in votes between the two men, who both impressed the judges and America on a consistent basis throughout the season.  Zerdin is...

Admitting that his remark would "probably come out wrong," the comedian declared, "You, sir, make bulimia entertaining." Oof.

Britain’s Got Talent 2010: Judges didn’t expect Spelbound’s throwing trick

Britain’s Got More Talemt presenter Stephen Mulhern has revealed that the Got Talent judges had no idea that Spelbound were going to be throwing people over their heads on Saturday night’s final.

As part of their impressive Bgt finale routine, a few of the gymnastic acrobat group gathered behind the judges table and proceeded to throw a member back and forward over their heads. Amanda Holden looked genuinely shocked when she realised what was going on and Stephen has revealed that she wasn’t acting.

He told Phil and Holly on This Morning:

“What the viewers at home won’t know is on the night, they came up behind the judges at the very last minute so the judges had no idea. So anyone that has filmed or recorded it should watch the judges after he flies over them. It’s amazing!”

“They never see the rehearsals, well

Everybody asks me this and do you know something, I can assure you now. It’s not a slight of hand, it’s not misdirection, this guy is a regurgitator. That’s what he does, he can hold it down and when he wants it to come back up as you’ve seen…he can do it!

Stevie Starr – The Regurgitator: Britain’s Got Talent 2010 Semi Final (Video)

Stevie Starr came with a health warning from Ant & Dec on tonight’s Britain’s Got Talent semi final, with presenter Declan Donnelly telling people not to try this at home.

Stevie started by swallowing a whole light bulb…..a few stomach wobbles later and the thing came back up whole! He then asked Amanda for her engagement ring…she was Not amused…we guess that she didn’t expect this because she looked genuinely shocked and she’s just not that good an actress (did you see Big Top?)

Amanda then watched as Stevie put the ring, a padlock and a key into his tummy while he attempted to open the lock with his key, insert the ring and then lock the padlock Before bringing it back up. He did it…..but was it real? Can someone really do that? It didn’t even appear to be covered in bile or salvia or anything…

Flute Magic leave Britain’s Got Talent 2010

Just a day after husband and wife act Othelio were put out of Britain’s Got Talent, another married couple have pulled out of the show.

Flute Magic appeared on a recent audition show in which Clive Hodgson carried out magic tricks while his wife Claire played the flute.

Clive’s magic act was quite good and we were positively entranced by the little white dove, but the flute playing made our murderous urges surface. Claire was abysmal. Piers Morgan called it “therapeutic” but thankfully Simon Cowell told it straight. He said:

“Without being rude Claire, every note was out of tune.”

The pair have now announced that they will be leaving the show for “personal reasons”.

A Bgt source told The Sun: “They decided not to take part any more. We wish them well.”

Britain’s Got More Talent: Stephen Mulhern gets death threats

Britain’s Got More Talent presenter Stephen Mulhern has been on the receiving end of internet death threats, it has been claimed.

Bgt viewers set up The Stephen Mulhern Hatred Society Facebook group two weeks ago and members have posted comments such as:

“I wish sum1 would crack his f**king skull wide open and let him bleed to death.”

And…..

“I hope he dies in a fire…

A source close to Stephen told The Daily Star: “Stephen’s gutted and is worried about his safety.”

A spokesman for Mulhern said last night: “It’s an unfortunate downside to being in the public eye.”

We have to admit to finding Mulhern more than slightly irritating….let’s face it he’s no Holly Willoughby….but perhaps these haters are taking things a little too far. Lets play nice eh? He’s not that bad!
