While the finale of ‘AGT’ was a huge night, not everyone was in the happy spirit. Host Nick Cannon was amazing on camera, but the moment the cameras stopped, Nick was spotted looking extremely down, an eyewitness there told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
Nick Cannon put on a brave face at the finale of America’s Got Talent on September 17, but HollywoodLife.com can tell you exclusively he’s having a hard time — and behind the scenes, he wasn’t at all as glowing, and actually skipped press! It’s clear that his reported split with Mariah Carey is definitely tough on him!
‘America’s Got Talent’: Nick Cannon Sad
“Nick Cannon looked deeply sad at the finale. He’s such a pro and did a great job staying upbeat during his shots and interacting with the audience, but when camera wasn’t on him, he looked like a sad puppy dog,” an eyewitness told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “You could definitely tell he had other things on his mind. He looked like you would when you’re heartbroken — trying to get through the day and keeping on a brave face, but down inside.”
Following the finale, as well as every live show, the host, talent and contestants walk the red carpet. However, on the biggest night for the show, Nick skipped the carpet.
“He took pics and went out the side door,” the source told us. “Not one interview on a huge finale certainly speaks volumes.”
Mariah & Nick’s Relationship Affecting His Career?
During the live show, judge Howard Stern cracked a joke about Nick before they ran a huge montage of him through out the season, where they called him the glue that held AGT together.
He mentioned that Nick had been “very sad all season” and that everyone knows why . . . “because he hasn’t won an Emmy.”
It was clear that he was referencing Mariah. Plus, Quintavious Johnson told us backstage, that Mariah didn’t come to set once during the season. Interesting for sure. What do you think, HollywoodLifers?
