They've always put a positive spin on his failures but what I've been hearing today is way over the top, even for them. Here are just a few of the ridiculous statements: Howard is "taking control". He "blew away" the other judges. AGT shows "the power of Howard". People are "flocking to NYC to see Howard". The judges table is "Howard's table" this year. The audience at AGT was "there to see Howard". Every one of those statements sounds exactly like something Howard would say about himself and I'm pretty sure that's where they really came from.
