So much for not burning bridges!
A week after filming her final episode of America's Got Talent, Sharon Osbourne says she won't return to NBC in any capacity, even though five years of options remain on her contract.
"They don't want me, and I don't want them," Osbourne tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I never want to hear from them again."
During Tuesday's America's Got Talent semifinals, judge Howard Stern named William Close the frontrunner, but it was 14-year-old Edon who stole the show.
The singer received a standing ovation for his rendition of One Direction's smash hit "What Makes You Beautiful." Following Edon's impassioned performance, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne were on their feet while the crowd enthusiastically chanted his name.
Anderson Cooper has released the initial lineup of guest co-hosts who will be joining him on his daytime talk show in the fall.
Actress Kristin Chenoweth will be the first person to play sidekick to the CNN anchor when she appears on Anderson Live on Sept. 10, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Nick Cannon, Ben Blaque
We thought we'd seen it all on America's Got Talent, but crossbow performer Ben Blaque proved us wrong. On Tuesday's wild card episode, judges Howie Mandel, Howard Stern and Sharon Osbourne each brought back four picks for a shot at redemption. Without a doubt, Blaque was one of the few who redeemed himself by performing what is possibly the most dangerous act to ever hit the AGT stage.

11. Worst Argument: After he's put into the bottom three on The Glee Project, Abraham delivers a perfectly fine performance of Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror" for his last-chance performance. But after feeling that he gave less than his best, he storms back onstage to tell Ryan Murphy and the other judges just how much he deserves to stay. "I'm not freaking leaving until I win this competition and you write a role for me on Glee," he proclaims. Murphy appreciates his initiative...
Tuesday's America's Got Talent's featured some of the most notable acts from the show's Top 48, including the Judges' Choices. But with only four acts continuing on, there is some stiff competition as the contestants head into Wednesday's results show.
While Eric Dittelman may have stunned us all when he read the mind of judge Howie Mandel, there were two acts which undeniably stole the show — for better or for worse.
Best performance of the night: William Close
Playing what he claims to be the world's largest stringed instrument, a self-made "Earth Harp," Close plucked away on the massive strings, creating a hauntingly beautiful rendition of The Who's "Love, Reign o'er Me."
Another twelve acts took the stage Tuesday night in the hopes of continuing on America's Got Talent. While the night was filled with lackluster performances, one act clearly outshined the rest.
The Lightwire Theater's performance as a group of dancing birds provided a spectacular end to the night.

13. Hardest Problem: On the series premiere of NY Med, an unidentified male visiting New York City goes to the hospital after having an erection for 12 hours as the result of taking an erectile-dysfunction drug. The urologist explains that the only solution is to drain blood from his penis. "Have you done this before?" the man asks, before exclaiming, "We should YouTube this!" The real kicker? He comes in with a guy he had met the night before at a club.
Howard Stern, Howie Mandel
On Tuesday's episode of America's Got Talent, Howard Stern criticized fellow judge Howie Mandel for his continued support of contestant Big Barry.
Barry delivered a lackluster performance of Nina Simone's "Feelin' Good" that elicited an immediate X from Stern, followed shortly by one from Sharon Osbourne.
Wednesday marked the third straight night of Las Vegas week on America's Got Talent. It was also the last chance for contestants to impress judges Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel before control of the competition was handed over to the voters.
The third segment of Vegas week featured the stand-by acts who really needed to prove they deserved one of the final spots. While some stepped up their game enough to continue, there was one contestant that definitely stood out, for better or worse.
