Of the five acts to be eliminated Wednesday night on the live results show of “America’s Got Talent” 2017, Puddles Pity Party‘s ouster is causing the most outrage from fans. The singing clown was X’ed by judge Simon Cowell during his performance of “Royals” by Lorde on Tuesday. He then failed to secure enough votes from America to make it through to the next round. Are you sad that Puddles was eliminated on “AGT”? Vote in our poll below.
Explaining why he buzzed Puddles during his performance, Cowell explained, “I just felt I couldn’t get in your world tonight for some reason. I didn’t get quite what was going on and I’m not sure the vocals were great. So I’m afraid that’s why you got the X and I’m not gonna be very popular.” In the end, America was influenced by Cowell’s decision as Puddles was one of the five acts eliminated during the Quarterfinals 1 episode of “AGT” Season 12. The other four also-rans were dance crew Just Jerk, young dance duo Artyon and Paige, comic singer The Singing Trump and daredevil Bello Nock.
Fellow “Americas Got Talent” judge Heidi Klum sort of agreed with Cowell’s assertion, admitting, “I have to say, I have mixed feelings about this. I do like you, Puddles, and I feel bad because you’re a sad clown. But I want a happy clown. There’s so much sadness in the world right now.”
However, the remaining two judges Howie Mandel and Mel B expressed their admiration for Puddles, with Mandel declaring, “I love you,” and Mel B adding, “I just can’t wait till you come on stage.” In the end, their praises weren’t enough to save the sad clown from elimination on the reality TV show.
