    “This is exactly what America’s Got Talent loves,†judge Howard Stern said. “I’m thinking, (you’re) like the Osmonds – except so much more talented.â€

    Likened to a modern-day “Partridge Family,†The Willis Clan wowed the judges on “America’s Got Talent†this week, but it’s the act’s back story that transcends a television variety show.

    The 12-member band from Middle Tennessee got its big break Tuesday, nearly two decades after the members’ grandparents suffered a tragedy so horrific it dominated headlines and political debates across Illinois for years.

    The act is made up entirely of the uber-talented Willis siblings, the grandchildren of Pastor Duane “Scott†and Janet Willis, who lost their six youngest children in a fiery 1994 crash that came to symbolize the licenses-for-bribes scandal that led to former Gov. George Ryan’s downfall...........................

    When Howard Stern masturbates does he rub his vagina fast or slow?
