America's Got Talent facing backlash for failing to mention a teen quarterfinalist's The Voice past
Courtney Hadwin, 14, made the Top 6 of Britain's The Voice Kids just last year, yet her reality past went unmentioned as she became a sensation on America's Got Talent. That left the impression that America's Got Talent was Hadwin's first experience with a big audience and reality TV cameras. “Courtney Hadwin got pretty far in the Voice Kids (but) now she’s a golden buzzer on AGT!?!?! Ummm,” wrote one Twitter user. Another pointed out that Simon Cowell should've known about her since he's also British. Hadwin isn't the first America's Got Talent contestant to be recycled from a foreign talent competition. A British Got Talent competitor performed again before Simon Cowell on America's Got Talent this season. An AGT spokesperson explains: "International acts are eligible to participate in the initial AGT auditions on visitor visas. If selected to proceed to the program live shows, AGT works with acts to secure appropriate performer visas which give acts authorization to perform throughout the series."

By Wednesday afternoon, Reinhart's own account was hacked, possibly by the same hacker(s). “Shouldn't have talked sh*t about us, here's to lili fans found this masterpiece in iCloud," the hacker wrote, with a link to a fake nude photo of her.

Wetterlund generated headlines last month when she called the former Silicon Valley star "a bully and petulant brat" and his fellow cast members "complicit in his unprofessionalism." Miller responded today on The Jim and Sam Show, denying he ever intentionally bullied her. “She may have had that experience, but it’s … just people trying to get into the headlines,” Miller said. “It was not my experience that anyone was bullying her. Truthfully, I felt like it was difficult to work with her because she kept interrupting Zach Woods … during takes, even when she was off-camera,” Miller added. “I don’t think anyone was bullying her … but obviously there was a disconnect, because now she’s saying these things about me and about the all-male cast of Silicon Valley."

Who Is America? EDM subject said he asked a cameraman: "Is Ashton Kutcher going to come out and say I got punked or something?”
"My first impression was that it was a prank show," says Miami nightclub owner and manager Jake Inphamous of meeting Sacha Baron Cohen's Rick Sherman character. Inphamous says he knew something off, and tried to take the filming lightly. But he did try to quiz the crew members. "The whole crew is trained very well," he says. "(A producer) looked at me very nervous and reiterated how I shouldn’t offend anybody. So I figured, okay, but in the back of my head I really thought something was off. And that’s why I didn’t end up like Daniel Roberts with a dildo in my mouth, because I was a little more aware." Inphamous adds: "I was 60 percent convinced it was a prank show, and 40 percent convinced it might’ve been a real show. I didn’t 100 percent know it was a prank show."
