Big Barry got a big letdown on "America's Got Talent" Wednesday night, when he failed to make the next cut to continue on the show. But he appeared on TODAY Thursday still dapper in his white suit with glitter lapels, gamely singing along to "New York, New York" at the request of Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Natalie Morales.
And as he revealed, Barry can be quite a divisive guy: Howie Mandel loved him, but Howard Stern ... not so much. The hosts' polar opposite opinions about Barry, he said, "started the brouhaha between the two of them."
Find out more about Barry, and whether he and Howie might be seen on a stage near you someday soon, in the video.
"America's Got Talent" airs its next round on Tuesday, July 17 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
