(The agreement — signed in April 2016, months ahead of Cabello's exit — doesn't name Cabello in the "Fifth Harmony Partnership." "I don't represent Camila," is all LaPolt will say.)"

Billboard possibly exposing 5H for lying about being "blindsided" by Camila Cabello's exit from the group.

Gone too soon.

On Tuesday evening, America's Got Talent honored Dr. Brandon Rogers by airing the late medical professional's audition a month after his untimely death. As we previously reported, Rogers died unexpectedly after getting into a terrible car accident back in June. This complicated things for NBC as Brandon was a standout contestant for this season of AGT and his audition hadn't even aired yet.

However, in order to pay their respects to the doctor, the network fulfilled Brandon's family's request to have the audition hit the small screen. Before sharing the talented singer's tryout, NBC noted in a statement:

"At the request of his family we would like to honor his memory by sharing his audition with you."
