'America's Got Talent' judges Heidi Klum, Mel B, Howard Stern (alongside his wife Beth Ostrosky Stern) and Howie Mandel pose on the red carpet at the Season 8 Finals event in New York. Mel confirms that she is wearing Stella McCartney as she flaunts a scarlet fishtail gown before one photographer asks if she is sad about comedian Taylor Williamson not winning. 'Yeah, I liked Taylor', she replies. Howie also drew attention as he appeared on the red carpet with a bag of peanuts hanging off his belt inciting a plethora of testicular jokes from the paps.
'AGT' host Nick Cannon was also snapped showing off a pair of sparkly silver slip-ons: 'No, socks today! That's how cool the shoes are!' He tells paparazzi. Country singer Luke Bryan is seen, jokingly accusing the photographers of being drunk when they reacted overenthusiastically to his various poses.
