Entertainment News

While the latest, high-flying clash in the epic rivalry between the Clemson Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide is sure to steal all of tomorrow’s newspaper headlines, tonight’s in-game headlines were stolen by Lil Wayne’s outfit during his halftime performance with Imagine Dragons (yes, Lil Wayne and Imagine Dragons, the duo that EVERYONE was clamoring for).

America’s Got Talent has been on the air for over a decade. The show premiered in 2006 with David Hasselhoff, Brandy Norwood, and Piers Morgan as the judges. Regis Philbin was the host for the first ever season. The show has evolved since then with many notable hosts and judges coming up to the table to witness some of the grandest, awe-inspiring and strange talents that America has to offer.
