    ...some comedian who performed on agt tells how agt screwed him by cutting up his segment making him look like he had no business being there. this comic (didnt catch his name) said hes been opening for artie lange for years, been in the business 25 years and even was on thss. give it a listen, its not bad. bottom line was/is when agt cuts and edits these videos they can actually do harm to a career/reputation that in this guys case, he worked on for 25 years.

    I would think it would be a good thing looking like you don't belong there. It's AGT for fuck sake.

    The release says they can do defamatory and embarrassing things to you.

    I understand that in connection with the Program or in any aspect or phase thereof (including, without limitation, the interview and
    audition process), I and others may reveal or relate information of a personal, private, surprising, defamatory, disparaging,
    embarrassing or unfavorable nature,
    and that my actions and the actions of others appearing in the Program may be embarrassing or
    of an otherwise unfavorable nature that may be factual or fictional. I further understand that my appearance, depiction, and portrayal
    in connection with the Program or in any aspect or phase thereof (including, without limitation, the interview and audition process),
    and my actions and the actions of others in connection with the Program or in any aspect or phase thereof (including, without
    limitation, the interview and audition process), may be disparaging, defamatory, embarrassing or of an otherwise unfavorable nature,
    may expose me to public ridicule, humiliation or condemnation, and may portray me in a false light"
