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.)

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."
