'America's Got Talent': 80-Year Old Rapping Granny G Steals The Show With A Positive Message (VIDEO)

The new "America's Got Talent" (Tue., 8 p.m. ET on NBC) continued to send through some surprising candidates, but was Granny G one of those? The 80-year old presented a rap that focused on family values, with some straight talk for all the "horny boys out there."

She stole the show, had the audience in her corner, and got three affirmative votes from the judges. Granny G is headed to Las Vegas, where she'll no doubt continue preaching positive messages. If she takes Sharon Osbourne's advice, she'll be doing it from behind a pimped out walker, too.

But while the audience and judges seemed unanimous in their love of the rapping senior citizen, critics were mixed. While a writer for Hollywood Life was ready to take Granny G home as his grandmother, The New Jersey Star-Ledger categorized her among their worst of the night. "This was a 9 on the weird factor," they declared.

"America's Got Talent" continues Mondays at 8 p.m. ET and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
