An "America's Got Talent" singer whose Afghanistan war injury claims have been called into question wouldn't face vetting by producers unless he made it into the final rounds, according to a person familiar with the production.
An "America's Got Talent" contestant scrutinized for claims about being injured in Afghanistan made a mistake when he gave the show a photograph of another soldier and passed it off as himself, the man's fiancée said Thursday.
Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris, will talk about her late father in an interview with Oprah Winfrey airing Sunday.
A singer who appeared on the NBC show "America's Got Talent" and claimed he was injured during a grenade blast in Afghanistan has no military record of his purported combat injuries, the Minnesota National Guard said Tuesday.
Olson said none of the military records that Morris provided to reporters Wednesday backed up Poe's claims of combat injuries.
He said Poe reported to Camp Shelby in Mississippi "for pre-mobilization training on Sept. 21, 2005, but ultimately did not deploy."
