Is America's Got Talent about to be down one judge? Probably not, but newbie Howard Stern admitted last night that the judging gig was getting to him. It all went down during 7-year-old contestant Mir Money's rapping routine. Stern hit his buzzer, quickly followed by Sharon Osbourne giving the kid the X, too. E! Online reports that when Stern began explaining his reasoning to the little rapper, Mir Money began crying. As the audience booed its disapproval for Stern's verdict, the AGT judge went up onstage, where Nick Cannon consoled the boy. Stern gave him a hug and a pep talk, complimenting the pint-sized performer's bravery, which seemed to help. Then Stern walked offstage, saying, "This job is too rough for me, I don't really wanna do it anymore...I'm not cut out for this, man. I'm not cut out for it. I'm shaking man, I'm shaking. I can't do it, man. I can't do it." Poor guy...Howard and the kid!
