As crual and heartless as it SOUNDS, thats just the title for the video:
Shock Jock DJ Howard Stern is now a judge on the television show, America's Got Talent, a show where people come on to show their talent on national
TV in hopes to win at the finals in Las Vegas.
In the video above, 7 year old 'More Money' comes on to do his thing. Howard buzzed him out, followed by Sharon Osborne.
Before you decide to say Howard is slime and heartless, REMEMBER: this is a TALENT SHOW, not EVERYONE WINS. Unfortunately, they decided this child
wasnt Las Vegas material.
As you watch the video, Howard felt horrible for buzzing the kid out, but he didnt feel the child was ready for Las Vegas, and even goes over to the
boy to comfort him afterwards. before the show cut to commercial, he comments saying he cant do this, he'd rather stick to radio.
Howard isnt heartless or cruel, he is a judge at a talent contest.

I've got to admit, when I heard Howard Stern was going to be a judge on Americas got Talent, I thought he'd treat it like a joke, but after watching
him on a couple shows he surprised me and did a pretty good job at it. I hope he stays.
As for the little kid crying, I takes a big man to do what Howard did, go up on stage and comfort the little guy.
I know someone who was on that show. Before they went out, a producer came out and offered a reward for who could boo the next act the loudest. It
was shameful and hurt a lot of nice people. Howard fits right in. He is a turd as well as the producers. The show is totally set up.
The kid sucked. Sorry, but it's true. Rap music has run its course (in my opinion) and it's time to move past it. Anyone, as evident of this kid,
can get up on stage and repeat the same 7 words over and over and over. No talent. Stern was right. About the only thing worse than this kid,
talent wise, is Stern.
It seems like making kids cry on these talent shows is quite common and probably all part of the "show". In the UK every week some little sprog
breaks down on stage in one of these "talent" shows. I blame the pushy parent's, trying to live their dreams through their kids and the likes of
Simon Cowell for creating programs exploiting young people and manipulating audiences.
How about "Mother makes 7 year old cry by pushing child with no talent on show"?
That would at least be a true headline.
I don't like Stern but this is ridiculous.
He even bowed under pressure to try comforting the child.
It's a talent show, not Sesame street where everyone wins a prize.

Stern didn't even say anything rude to the kid,yet I've been seeing people around the web calling him terrible,and a monster,and whatnot. He buzzed
the kid out because the kid sucked. Bottom line. Also,people need to stop trying to make money off of their kids. I've seen more 5,6,7 year old
rappers than I care to have seen in my time,and more often than not it's their trash parents just trying to make a buck because the kid tried to orate
along with big brother or uncles,and occasionally daddy's choice in music,so that must mean that they are the next big thing. Beauty pageant moms are
no better either. I don't even really care for Howard Stern,and I don't watch the show but I remember thinking when I heard that he would be a
judge,since when is Howard Stern an authority on musical talent?Or Howie Mandell for that matter? But it's not as though Howard said anything out of
line or rude to the kid. If his parents don't want him to cry than don't give a talentless kid delusions of grandeur. Teach him to play an
instrument,that he can use to play real music with.
