A brave Marine who lost part of his leg in Iraq inspired all four judges on America's Got Talent Tuesday as he shared how music helped him through his pain.

Sal Gonzalez, 29, who lives in Nashville but grew up in Los Angeles, earned "yes" votes and praise for not only his singing but his work with the Wounded Warrior Project, in which he helps other injured veterans re-adjust to life back home.

See the Spice Girls Posing with Their Past Selves

Originally posted 04/26/2014 12:10PM

Though they reunited for a rousing performance at the 2012 Olympics closing ceremonies, one member of the Spice Girls says she won't be there for any future reunions of the '90s girl group. As Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham told Vogue Paris recently, "the passion just wasn't there."

But, similar to the cast of Friends, it turns out Photoshop can do what the real world can't: bring all five Spice Girls back to a time when girl power and friendship conquered all. Like they once sang, "If you wanna be my 'shopper, you gotta 'shop with my friends." (OK, those weren't the exact lyrics, but you know where we're going with this.)

"Someone asked me that the other day and I couldn't answer it," he admitted. But when the interviewer suggested Brad Pitt, the father of four took the ball and ran with it.

Heidi Klum's Got Talent – But Is It the Right Kind?

Heidi Klum Makes America's Got Talent Debut: How Was She?

Originally posted 06/05/2013 09:55AM

Heidi Klum has taken the first significant step in her TV career since Project Runway, the show that established her as a reality star: Tuesday night, she joined a revamped and expanded judges' panel on season 8 of NBC's America's Got Talent.

It was a sensible and safe step for her. Simply by being gorgeous and charming and not Piers Morgan, she proved herself ready for a bigger, busier network platform.

But I think now she should move on to something else. What is good for Heidi may not be good for America's Got Talent.
