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:

America proved last night that it has both talent and emotion.

First, Paul Thomas Mitchell broke down in tears after a beautiful performance of an original track.

Then, Travis Pratt took to the stage and positively amazed us with his operatic voice. Seriously, we did NOT expect these sounds to emanate from this contestant:

After seized his singing moment, however, Pratt truly got down to business... by getting down on one knee! Yes, he proposed to his girlfriend - and she said YES!

“Thank you for sharing this moment with the nation,” Howie Mandel told the couple after she accepted.

Watch it all unfold in the video above.

Look out, John Mayer.

Paul Thomas Mitchell was introduced to the world on America's Got Talent last night, sharing both his story of personal triumph and an original song... and leaving judges and viewers in absolute awe.

The 20-year old was abandoned by his mother and dealt with a drug-addicted family, but he poured every ounce of that story into his rendition of "My Life," breaking down as panelists heaped him with praise.

“I wanna come and hug you!” Heidi Klum cried, meaning Mitchell has pretty much already won.

Watch his audition now and compare it with another early AGT favorite: Anna Christine.

Melanie Brown and Heidi Klum made their America's Got Talent debuts last night.

But the singer and the model were overshadowed by a 10-year old from New York City.

Anna Christine sat calmly down at the piano during night one of the NBC competition - and then blew everyone away with a rendition of "House of the Rising Sun."

Howie Mandel said that Christine “delivered what looked like 30 years of experience," and he was far from alone in his glowing assessment. Watch and be amazed now:

America won't merely have talent this summer.

It will also have two brand new reality show judges ready to sole out the praise, the criticism and - in the case of at least one panelist - the skimpy outfits... we hope.

Yes, Heidi Klum and Melanie Brown debut on America's Got Talent June 4 and NBC has given us our first look at the model and the singer in judging action.

Check out this extended trailer now for a look at both beauties and also to see footage of a few acts, as they compete for a $1 million grand prize and a show on the Las Vegas strip:

Take comfort, Justin Bieber. You aren't the only celebrity to be booed on stage this week.

During her very first taping as an America's Got Talent judge, Melanie Brown heard it from fans in New Orleans after she criticized Lagniappe, a popular local brass band.

After expressing her disdain for that type of music, the audience reportedly let the ex-Spice Girl have it, screaming at her to "go home" and saying she has "no respect."

Sources tell TMZ that Brown leaned over and was comforted by Howie Mandell, while fellow new judge Heidi Klum fared just fine.

Probably because she looks like Heidi Klum.

Howie Mandell and Howard Stern are officially the luckiest men in the country.

NBC sources have confirmed to TMZ that Heidi Klum will join the cast of America's Got Talent this summer, becoming the show's four judge alongside the aforementioned gentlemen and newcomer Melanie Brown.

Sharon Osbourne resigned from the series last year.

Note to readers: Excuse us while we go set a series recording for America's Got Talent.

Klum, of course, has plenty of reality show experience, having hosted Project Runway for many years.

We wonder what Joan Rivers has to say about this news.
