America's Got Talent has not lacked for drama early in Season 9.
And then last night Jonathan Allen came out, announced that his parents kicked him out on his 18th birthday for being gay, and then stunned with the following audition:
Crowed Howie Mandel:
"You seem like a good person, and you have a dream, and a talent, and your own family disowned you, but with your talent, this show has become your family, and we'd like to say 'welcome home.' We love you, we accept you, and we are so proud that you came here."
Amen, Howie. Amen.
