Baltimore escape artist Spencer Horsman's willingness to almost die in front of an audience is proving a smash on NBC's "America's Got Talent. " "Yeah, apparently they like the fact that I'm willing to almost kill and mangle myself every round," Horsman said with a laugh, just a day after his latest escape earned him a spot in the show's final round, being taped this month in New York. Truly, the 26-year-old, heretofore best known for performing on weekends at his Federal Hill club, Illusions, is going national.

Julienne Irwin, the 14-year-old country singer from Bel Air, has received almost as much praise for her demeanor as her voice from the judges on NBC's top-rated summertime series America's Got Talent. "You are such a great role model for other girls in this country," Sharon Osbourne said after Julienne sang "Bless the Broken Road" last week to advance to the Final 10. "You don't flaunt what you've got. You dress appropriately -- you're just great." On TV America's Got Talent airs at 8 tonight on WBAL, Channel 11.

Ozzy Osbourne once bit the head off a bat, was singled out as a satanist by Cardinal John O'Connor, and helped invent the darkest, doomiest music known to man: heavy metal. But on his new album, Down to Earth, Osbourne gazes out a window and wonders, "Will Mother Earth survive?" He has given up drugs, drink and cigarettes. Can it really be? A new softer, fuzzier, vice-free Ozzy? "That's wrong," Osbourne jokes soberly in his Chicago hotel room. "It's killing me. Killing me." Osbourne is feeling his 53 years in other ways on this day. He recently broke his right leg when he fell in the shower.

America's Got Talent, TV's highest-rated summer show, ended its second season last night with singer/ventriloquist Terry Fator taking home the $1 million prize. A Texas-based entertainer who said his dream was to headline in Las Vegas, Fator won over three other finalists: Bel Air country singer Julienne Irwin, beatboxer Antoinette "Butterscotch" Clinton and singer/guitarist Cas Haley. While 14-year-old Julienne was the first to be eliminated, the telecast was nevertheless a triumph for her. The live, two-hour program featured all the finalists performing duets with established artists in their field.

Doctors and hospitals across the country are scrambling to satisfy the booming demand for surgery that shrinks the stomachs of severely obese people. Dozens of hospitals are adding operating suites for the procedure, called bariatric surgery, which attracted wide notice after public figures such as Al Roker of NBC's Today program, Sharon Osbourne of MTV's family reality show and Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a Manhattan Democrat, had the operation. Some bariatric surgeons are fully scheduled 12 months in advance, and hundreds of doctors have jumped into the field recently and started to advertise their availability.

Lulu, a pleasantly plump pole dancer from Hanover, Md., made quite the splash last night on "America's Got Talent," shimmying and writhing up her pole and eventually landing in a jaw-dropping split. The 27-year-old contestant, who works as an accounting and title clerk, had "a big goal, and that's to dance," she told the cameras. She's been dancing for as long as she could remember, though having two kids sidelined her for a time. Lulu strutted out onto the stage in a teeny aqua-colored bikini, introduced herself, and began her routine.

The winner of this year's "America's Got Talent" has pretty much been decided already -- it will be William Close and his earth harp -- and so, we're really watching to see who can continue to hack it, at least. You'll also notice that with the stakes this high, judges Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel tended to stay neutral or positive, as to not sway voters too much. The first act up was David Garibaldi and his CMYK's. In the pre-performance film, the energetic geek managed to follow up a "Star Wars" reference with a "Star Trek" one when he explained that, "This is the time where creativity goes in hyper-speed," then added, "this is the moment to bring it, creatively we just want to go to a place where no one's gone before.

Auditions continue in Tampa, Fla. and we're off to a great start with a kiddie dance troupe called The Untouchables. They previously auditioned for the show with a bigger group, but the size proved problematic. Now they're back with fewer people and the cutbacks have payed off. I mean, not only are they super lively and precise, 8-year-olds are lifting and spinning one another above their heads! Judge Howard Stern, who has said at least three times this season that he normally fast forwards through the dance acts when he watches the show at home, calls them “captivating” and tells the cute, younger dancers that puberty is their “worst enemy.” “Shirley Temple didn't listen to me,” Howard says.

After a three-week hiatus during the Olympic games, or as I like to call them, "Planet Earth's Got Talent," the seventh season of "America's Got Talent" returns tonight. From here on out, I will be your recapper. And who am I? Well, I'm a Baltimore-based writer who mostly writes about rap music for SPIN , and I've also contributed to places like Pitchfork, The Village Voice , as well as b and City Paper . I'm also a pretty big Howard Stern fan and Howard joining judges Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel, is what got me watching.

The California state medical board is investigating a complaint that Dr. David A. Kipper, a Beverly Hills physician with a celebrity clientele, overprescribed addictive drugs to rock musician and reality television star Ozzy Osbourne. Authorities have asked Kipper to turn over copies of Osbourne's medical records and have scheduled a meeting with the British singer and his wife, Sharon, according to people familiar with the investigation. In November, the Medical Board of California accused Kipper of overprescribing habit-forming drugs to other patients and running an illegal detoxification program for addicts.
