Nick Cannon went white face again on America's Got Talent last night.

But this time the outfit didn't stir up any controversy.

Indeed, Cannon faced criticism for donning white face in promotion of his upcoming album, the host dressed up like a mime on Tuesday's premiere of this NBC competition.

He was an especially bad and aggressive mime, approaching the judges' table at one point and causing Howie Mandell to call for security.

But Cannon then yanked off his disguise, as seen here, and Howard Stern dubbed the prank as "maybe the greatest thing I’ve ever seen on America’s Got Talent."

Bravo, Nick.

America's Got Talent will have a very familiar look to it next summer:

NBC announced yesterday that all four judges from Season 8 - Heidi Klum, Melanie Brown, Howard Stern and Howie Mandel - will return to the panel on Season 9.

"Howard, Heidi, Mel and Howie have proven that they are a dynamic quartet of judges who aren't afraid to share their opinions, while at the same time creating fireworks of their own," Paul Telegdy, NBC's alternative programming head, said in a statement. "Along with Nick serving as an incomparable host, our talent onTalent is among the finest on all of television."

Auditions for new episodes are already underway, with contestants hoping to follow in the winning footsteps of Kenichi Ebina.

That dancer took home the top prize on Season 8.

Take a bow, Kenichi Ebina. You have the most talent in the country.

Following a summer of dazzling performances on NBC, this unique dancer was named the America's Got Talent champion last night, a few weeks after Howie Mandell named him the front runner, gushing over his unmatched abilities.

"It's amazing," Kenichi said after his victory. "I want to thank my wife and my daughter [for] being supportive all the way through and all the fans that support us."

Ebina defeated Taylor Williamson in the final vote, earning himself $1 million and a Las Vegas show in the process.

Samantha Lynn Goudie may have a talent for drinking, but she's no Kenichi Ebina.

The unique dancer wowed audiences and judges once again on America's Got Talent last night, with Howie Mandel exclaiming:

"You, sir, are the biggest talent in the world.... You have the variety. You’re a comedian. You are a dancer. You are a mime. You are an artist. You are a writer... You’re the man. You should win a million dollars!”

Heidi Klum chimed in and labeled Ebina a "genius," while Melanie Brown said she would pay to see him in Vegas.

Is Ebina being over-praised? Actually under-praised? Watch highlights from his performance below and decide for yourself:

Catapult Entertainment catapulted itself to the top of the America's Got Talent leaderboard last night, thanks to a routine that was both awe-inspiring and tear-inducing.

The unusual dance group - which combines the art of illusion and body magic - performed a routine set to "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and dedicated to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in December.

It used a screen and silhouettes to tell a moving story and earned high praise from Heidi Klum and company.

“You guys are on a different level of imagination. It is so beautiful to watch what you guys do behind that screen,” Klum said afterward, “This is the best act of tonight. I love it.”

Brad Paisley is done being an Accidental Racist.

Now, he's just a realistic country singer.

The superstar debuted "I Can't Change the World" on last night's America's Got Talent results show, performing the third track of the album "Wheelhouse."

It's a slow, beautiful ballad that shouldn't garner the same controversy as the artist's aforementioned duet with LL Cool J from earlier this year. Give the single a listen now:

As for the actual America's Got Talent results?

Fortunately for men across America, it doesn't take a look to get Heidi Klum naked. The super model loves to ditch her clothing and Tweet about it.

But getting the America's Got Talent judge to cry? To gush about you in front of a national audience? That requires major pipes.

Enter Branden James, an openly gay opera singer who wowed all panelists on last night's edition of this NBC hit, but none more than Heidi.

“I’ve just always loved you,” a teary Klum said after James covered Josh Grobam. ”I feel your emotion when you sing. I’m like right there with you when you sing.”

See what all the emotional fuss is about now:

As if Justin Bieber doesn't already have enough to worry about, what with a new peeing scandal and all.

Now a 14-year old girl has come out and, some might say, blown Bieber himself out of the musical water with a cover of his track "As Long As You Love Me."

Olivia Rox went acoustic for her rendition on America's Got Talent last night, receiving a standing ovation and effusive praise from the judges.

“I absolutely loved you,” said Heidi Klum. “I actually liked that you belted it out and the next moment it was like the voice of an angel and the next moment you belted it again.”

Watch the impressive performance now:

We've seen young contestants blow away America's Got Talent judges before, typically with an operative voice or slow ballad.

Latest case in point: Anna Christine.

But Aaralyn O’Neil took things to a new, shocking, impressive level last night, totally ROCKING OUT - heavy metal style! - at just six years old.

She led an evening of the competition that also featured two other stand-outs, both of whose auditions are posted below along with O'Neil's:

  1. Forte, a diverse group of individuals who met for the first time just days prior to performing.
  2. The Struck Boyz, a dance troupe from Long Island who reminded many of Justin Bieber.

America's Got Talent has not lacked for drama early in Season 9.

Travis Pratt proposed to his girlfriend on stage. Paul Thomas Mitchell made like John Mayer and then broke down in front of the judges. Anna Christine was simply awesome.

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:
