"America's Got" Boy Shakira

Time for more "America's Got Talent" controversy! At the Chicago auditions in last night's episode — hey, why do the producers insist upon faking the audition locations when they're all taped in Los Angeles? — judge David Hasselhoff flipped out when Boy Shakira was put through to the next round by British arbiters Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan.

In case you missed it, Boy Shakira is just what it sounds like: a scantily clad female impersonator grinding away on stage. (That's not him pictured above. That's the real thing.) Who knew The Hoff had such a prob with dudes whose hips don't lie? Sure, Boy Shakira was entertaining and all, and we're happy he advanced in this mind-numbing train wreck of a talent show, but he's no Leonid the Magnificent.
