The Next Adele? America's Got Talent's Mandy Harvey Responds to Simon Cowell's High Praise


The Next Adele? America's Got Talent's Mandy Harvey Responds to Simon Cowell's High Praise

Singers ruled the America’s Got Talent stage during the Tuesday, Sept. 12 show. Kechi moved the judges, including Mel B, to tears and Mandy Harvey received high praise from Simon Cowell when he compared her to Adele after she sang an original song.

“I think other people were thinking that,” Cowell told E! News after the show. “I had a feeling they’re probably thinking what I thought that it reminds me or it reminds them of the first time you heard Adele.”

Cowell said the taped package before Harvey’s performance was “unbelievable.”

Harvey, who lost her hearing at age 19, said she’s not sure what Cowell meant with that compliment. Cowell previously gave Harvey the Golden Buzzer during auditions.

“I’ve never heard her voice, but I follow her career,” she said. “It’s hard not to. It’s such an incredible honor to even be mentioned in that same sentence.”

Meanwhile, Kechi, who survived a plane crash in 2005, stirred the audience and judges with a performance of “Don’t Worry About Me.” Cowell told us he watched Kechi’s mother, who was sitting in the audience.

“You have no idea what they went through. The fact that she was still standing there and was still thinking about the song…it was unbelievable,” Cowell said.

Kechi told us she left everything on the stage.

“The feeling I have is just—I did my best,” she said. “Now it’s in America’s hands.”

America’s Got Talent airs Tuesday and Wednesday, 8 p.m. on NBC.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)

The halls of Grey Sloan Memorial are going to welcome a face familiar to TV fans when Grey’s Anatomy returns for season 14.

E! News can exclusively reveal that Ally McBeal alum Greg Germann will guest star in an upcoming episode of the ABC hit’s new season. While details about his character are being kept under wraps—this is Shondaland, after all!—we do know that his name is Tom Koracick and his appearance will be in an episode entitled “Go Big or Go Home.” As for who among the hospital’s staff he’ll tangle with, that remains to be seen.

ABC has released some details about the first two episodes of the new season, airing together as a part of the show’s two-hour September 28 premiere. The first episode, entitled “Break Down the House,” will see Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and the team focus on helping Owen’s (Kevin McKidd) sister after her shocking return, while Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) faces a conflict over a patient. Meanwhile, Bailey (Chandra Wilson) is forced to give Grey Sloan a facelift after the fire, and the doctors are introduced to a few new faces that spice things up around the hospital.

In the second episode, entitled “Get Off on the Pain,” Meredith struggles to come up with a new plan for Owen’s sister. Meanwhile, Jo (Camilla Luddington) makes a surprising choice regarding Alex (Justin Chambers), and Andrew’s (Giacomo Gianniotti) sister’s controversial research leads to a shocking discovery.

The network has also released a handful of first look photos from the new season. Take a look below!
