Howard Stern has really done it this time. The ‘America’s Got Talent‘ judge caused a 7-year-old rapper to cry on Monday (May 21) after eliminating him with an X.

Mir Money, an aspiring rapper from Philadelphia, Pa., charmed the audience and judges with his pre-performance Q&A, but after launching into his verses, the pint-sized artist was hit with an X from Stern and Sharon Osbourne.

Mir Money’s performance was cut short, at which point the jockey addressed the contestant. “You’re a very nice young man and you know that,” Stern told Mir Money. “No one likes hitting the X on a 7-year-old. You’re very brave to get up there at 7 years old.”

However, before Stern could finish, Mir Money burst into tears as the crowd reacted. The radio personality then went onstage to console the heartbroken youngster. “I don’t want to make you cry,” Stern added. “I’ve met many of great rappers … none of them are quite as great as you.”

As Mir Money left the stage, Stern confessed that he wasn’t quite cut out for being a judge on the show. “I can’t do it,” he said. “Radio is for me. I made a mistake. This is not for me.”
