Every reality TV competition show needs its crotchety old man wizened veteran judge. Cue Howard Stern on "America's Got Talent."
Known for his shock jock ways on the radio, Stern, 59, was equally as blunt when asked for his early favorites for Season 8 of the hit summer series.
"We have a lot of good [acts]," he told Yahoo! TV on the red carpet of the show's first live taping at Radio City Music Hall. "I really like the Hitmen, the rock band."
At the beginning of season – just before they were about to perform for their first audition – Stern told the American Hitmen, a group made up of military veterans, "I am still looking for a great rock band and it is looking like you might deliver."
And deliver they did apparently. But they weren't the only ones.
