Wednesday's August 15th Results Show To Feature An Exclusive Look at A Day In The Life of Howard Stern and a Performance from American Pop Duo Karmin

NEW YORK, NY - August 13, 2012 - NBC'S top rated show "America's Got Talent" returns all new on Tuesday, August 14th (8-10 p.m. ET), with live performances from 12 brand new acts selected from YouTube. This year, thousands of acts from across the country submitted videos at www.youtube.com/agt , hoping for a chance to perform live on America's biggest stage and for a shot at bypassing the competition to become a Top 24 act. Unlike any other talent competition, "America's Got Talent" is the only stage that encourages the best talent from all areas, at all times in the competition, giving fans the power to fast-track their favorite new acts into the semi-finals. Previous "America's Got Talent" YouTube auditions have resulted in the discovery of young opera sensation Jackie Evancho and Chicago-based BMX racer, Matt Wilhelm.

This year's YouTube acts include 16 year old self-taught Memphis musician Drew Erwin, the fan-selected winner from the YouTube Snapple auditions. Erwin will make his AGT debut in front of judges Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne and Howard Stern on Tuesday, alongside the 11 additional YouTube acts that were selected by the show.

On Wednesday's results show, viewers will get a never-before seen look at a day in the life of celebrity judge Howard Stern. From his radio program, to his cross town commute to "Americas Got Talent," to a look behind the scenes at AGT, fans will follow Stern in an exclusive peak at his day before he takes his judges' seat to announce the four acts from Tuesday's show that will move on to the semi-finals.

Additionally, American pop duo Karmin will perform a mash-up of their platinum hit single "Brokenhearted" and their new single "Hello" on Wednesday night's results show. Comprised of real life couple and former Berklee College of Music students Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan, Karmin catapulted onto the scene with high profile appearances on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," "Live with Kelly!" and "Chelsea Lately." They released their first album, Hello, this year and spent the earlier part of the summer touring around the country and headlining festivals, including a performance for a crowd of more than 100,000 people in San Francisco last month.
