For the finals of "America's Got Talent" Season 8, the show did an interesting thing -- the Top 6 acts each re-performed a piece from earlier in the season, then they did a new original performance.
This first round of retreads certainly favored certain types of acts. As Howie Mandel points out, Forte got to add a choir and some strings, while Jimmy Rose just kind of did his performance again. And Collins Key was charged with repeating a trick, while Taylor Williamson was at a Huge disadvantage by having to perform the same jokes.
However, Williamson was rather delightful in the twist he put on his act, while Kenichi Ebina re-performed a routine but added a lot of pizzazz. Cami Bradley performed "Believe" again, but it was still beautiful. We definitely think the first round ended up serving Williamson, Collins Key and Ebina moreso than it did the singing acts, which was unusual. »

There’s a silver lining to yesterday’s whole Beyoncé lip-synching debacle: If Bey did, in fact, mouth the words to the national anthem at Monday’s inauguration, at least she’s in good company.
As Jennifer Lopez noted on The Daily Show last night, basically every major musician has relied on pre-recorded tracks at some point — even giants like The Beatles, Michael Jackson, and Whitney Houston. (Not to mention lesser beings like Ashlee Simpson and Milli Vanilli.) So in honor of the earpiece-removal that scandalized a nation, let’s look back at some of music history’s most memorable »

Throughout time, there have been countless bands that have captivated us with their music. In the last half century, Rock n Roll has evolved from “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” to “Welcome to the Jungle” to whatever product this new wave of artists are trying to put out. Bands have changed the genre, and have set an influence for future generations of music. Punk Rock music was the sole reason I set out to play guitar and start my own band. Now, with all the success that the bands on this list have gained, in my eyes they had a chance to be something bigger than they were.
