'America's Got Talent' judges' buzzers break mid-performance

'America's Got Talent': The Judges Buzzers Break Mid-Performance

On "America's Got Talent," the judges were trying to eliminate a vocally challenged boy band from the competition but ran into a little problem.

Yep. The Buzzers stopped working when Mel B. unplugged a cord to charge her cell phone.

Even though the crowd was booing and the judges were pressing their buttons relentlessly, the guys continued to sing and dance on stage, oblivious to the fact they were getting a definite no from the judges.

Heavy.com notes "Diverse", the boy band consisting of two guys, Eddie and Zach, have been together for three years. The jersey boys claim their act is a boy band that 'gets the ladies' but, we're not so sure. Heavy.com writes, "To be frank, they didn't make what their act was too clear. They can't sing ... since the buzzers are broken, the two poor kids are under the impression they're doing well."

The New Jersey Star Ledger wasn't too happy to see Jersey boy band represent their state. "As someone whose lived in Jersey my entire life, I spend a lot of time defending the Garden State to out-of-staters. It's people like Eddie and Zach... that make defending my home state even harder... it was painful to watch," the paper reported.

Even the backstreet boys joked about Diverse's crummy performance on Twitter, saying they could probably teach the guys a thing or two.

The famous boy band's song, "Everybody" played earlier in the night during Eddie and Zach's intro. If we're lucky, just maybe we'll get to have some BSB on the show in the future, instead of Eddie and Zach.

There's something WRONG with people who just can't live without their damn cell phones.

Same thing happened when millions of Americans tried to vote against Obama.

Yeah, there's no need for that power cord to be plugged in. I'm going to just recharge my phone here rather than leaving it in my dressing room to charge.

Because being without your cell phone during a TV show is life and death. What if someone tried to call her or text her or she had to Tweet something important?

Mel B should have made sure her phone was charged BEFORE the show started. This is clearly her fault.

Howard Stern's disgusting disregard for the aqppropriate treatment of the U.S. flag by wearing it as a scarf, is disgraceful and further evidence that he is nothing but a scum!

I know right? It's funny b/c it's so stupid. I love how people have to explain something that just simply ironic. That's really the point in itself isn't it?

It wasn't ironic or stupid....well maybe stupid, It was created for television. No one working on a show would pull out a plug to charge their phone. But you bought it and the hilarity ensues!!!

On the bright side at least they got their full 15 minutes of fame.

As someone from New Jersey, I have to say that it's more embarrassing to see the lack of education exhibited by the Star ledger writer. "Who's" = who is/has, as in " As someone who's lived in New Jersey my entire life...". "Whose" indicates possession, as in "Whose cell phone disabled the buzzers?" Wow.
