As a cancer survivor, Osbourne also confesses, "I never thought I'd get here, let alone everything else. My life now is a bonus, really."

For the episode, the Osbourne matriarch was joined on-air by her rocker husband Ozzy Osbourne, her daughter Kelly Osbourneand friend Nick Cannon.

Parents' night out!

Kendra Wilkinson, Hank Baskett and Nick Cannon stepped out at the Resident Evil 6 launch party at LURE Nightclub in Los Angeles on Friday.

Leaving 2-year-old Hank at home, Wilkinson and Baskett danced while Nas took the stage to perform hits including "One Mic" and "It Ain't Hard to Tell."

At a nearby VIP table, Cannon was overheard telling fellow guests his wife Mariah Carey planned on attending the event but was too tired, adding that his 17-month-old twins Monroe and Moroccan were "a handful."

"He was telling guests that he would love for daughter Monroe to be a track star when she gets older," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Nick was former champion in the triple jump and wants her to follow in his footsteps."

'America's Got Talent': Who Do You Think Should Win?

Originally posted 09/13/2012 10:45AM

This season's final performances on America's Got Talent had a little bit of everything – music, dancing, comedy, art … and yes, acrobatic dogs. But only one winner will take home the $1 million prize and a headlining show in Las Vegas.

All six finalists gave generally strong performances Wednesday in their last shot to impress judges Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and Howard Stern.

David Garibaldi and His CMYKs (a group of backup dancers/painting assistants) whipped up an impressive portrait of Albert Einstein, while the other artist in the finals, Joe Castillo, did sand portraits of the judges and host Nick Cannon.

Nick Cannon is fan-tastic!

@JessicaRoyan met the America's Got Talent host after he performed at The Laugh Shop at Hotel Blackfoot in Calgary, Canada, earlier this month.

After the show, Royan, who wore a top that read Mariah, met Cannon and passed on a card for his wife of four years.

"[He was] so kind! He said he would pass along my card to Mariah and took some time to get some photos," says Royan. "So so nice!"

Royan, who works to raise awareness about organ donation, and Cannon, who has suffered from a lupus-like autoimmune disease in the past, share a common ground in educating others about their respective causes.

"He shared about his kidney issues at the show ... I shared my project about organ donation in my card!"

Nick Cannon: Twins Are Taking Their First Steps

Originally posted 06/07/2012 01:00PM

While his wife Mariah Carey has been photographed vacationing in Capri, Monaco and Morocco with their 13-month old twins Moroccan and Monroe, Nick Cannon stuck around to take the reins behind the camera – directing his first feature film.

But, he admits, it's very hard being away from his family, especially now that the twins have recently taken their first steps.

"I try to not go seven days without seeing them. I'll be with them this weekend," Cannon, 31, tells PEOPLE from the Norwalk, Calif., movie set of School Dance, a coming-of-age comedy that he co-wrote and is also producing.

America's Got Talent: Goth Opera Singer Andrew De Leon Wows Judges

Originally posted 06/06/2012 09:30AM



Talk about unexpected!

When Andrew De Leon walked out onto the stage in Austin, Texas, for his America's Got Talent audition Tuesday, his goth appearance – long black hair, dark eye makeup, Marilyn Manson-esque contacts and black clothes – initially drew smirks from the judges.

"Growing up, I was alienated because I was never interested in athletics or what everybody else in my family was interested in," a visibly nervous De Leon, 19, told host Nick Cannon, who addressed him as "Criss Angel" during an interview before the audition. "Singing was always an escape. It was always a comfort zone."

And he has a right to be comfortable with it. When De Leon opened his mouth to offer a note-perfect opera performance, the judges went from being skeptical to blown away. And the audience, which included De Leon's parents, roared.

Howard Stern Makes 7-Year-Old Rapper Cry on America's Got Talent

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.)
