It's not easy being a judge on America's Got Talent.

Howard Stern, who joined the panel alongside Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel for the show's new season, found that out the hard way when he buzzed a 7-year-old rapper named Mir Money.

After the Philadelphia student took the stage and had the crowd cheering along to his song, Stern hit his X button ("I think the X has a lot of power," he said in the season premiere. "I like hitting it"), before Osbourne followed suit.

"You're a very nice young man and you know that. No one likes hitting the X on a 7-year-old. You're very brave to get up there at 7 years old," Stern said, as Money started to cry.

Night two of America's Got Talent took the search for performers to San Francisco, where the judges – including newcomer Howard Stern – discovered a rapping 80-year-old grandmother known as Granny G.

"I caught the entertainment bug when I was a little girl, like four years old. But things get in your way like marriage and children and you wake up one day and you think, 'My life has passed me by!' " she said before her audition. "I never thought that I would have this wonderful opportunity. ... It would be the fulfillment of all my dreams. I want to be a star."

Taking the stage in a pink dress, pearls and a walker, she performed a rap about family values, dedicated to "all you horny boys out there." (Watch a clip above.)

Howard Stern made his debut on America's Got Talent Monday night, taking a seat next to Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel on the show's seventh season premiere.

"These executives at NBC must be out of their mind to take a risk on me," he said at the top of the hour. But in fact, the radio shock jock showed a lot of heart and proved he's got talent – for judging!

When the Light Wire Theater group performed a dance routine featuring glow-in-the-dark dinosaurs, Stern, who pointed out earlier in the night that he was the only American on the panel, had a moment of patriotism. "We are the greatest country in the world. We have the most creative people. You're everything that makes America great," he told the dancers. "I applaud your originality and I thank you for lifting everyone's spirit."
