* ButTheShowMustGoOn: Poppycock quoted it word for word when admitting he was under the weather for his first audition, but still gave it all he could despite straining his voice near the end of ''La Donna e Mobile.''

* [[WhatTheHellHero What The Hell, Piers?]]: Safe to say the fans were both shocked and outraged at Piers voting down Poppycock's 2010 Quarter-Finals performance, and why? Because Poppycock supposedly fell into the trap of a contestant "taking himself too seriously", [[{{Hypocrite}} which rung rather hollow considering Piers pegged himself as the one to "discover" Jackie Evancho after her semi-final performance.]]

* BewareTheNiceOnes: This CampGay [[TheDandy dandy]] will wow and amaze with his soulfully operatic performances, but buzz him during an important performance like Piers did and you can expect a tongue as sharp as his decorative eyelashes:
--> '''Poppycock''': "Well, I just wanted to say thank you to Piers. You see, I was promised a horse, but I only got two guys in horse heads, and so Piers intuitively understood that I needed a horse's behind!"

** Piers later admitted, ironically after Poppycock was eliminated in the semi-finals, that he looked back on having x'ed Poppycock and regretted why he did it.

* AwesomeMusic: One of Poppycock's first audition songs? ''[[TheBarberOfSeville Largo Al Factorum]]'', i.e. one of the most ''freaking difficult'' arias to sing for a baritone.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: One of Poppycock's first audition songs? ''[[TheBarberOfSeville Largo Al Factorum]]'', i.e. one of the most ''freaking difficult'' arias to sing for a baritone. Piers' FascinatingEyebrow midway through the performance tells you that he was ''not'' expecting that from the Prince.

* FakeBrit: In character, he usually rocks a slightly British tone. It's all part of the "royalty" package.
** Either he occasionally goofs up, or he just doesn’t care enough to stay with the accent at all times.



* OneSceneWonder: WTF? Prince Poppycock’s screentime puts [[Series/TheTonightShow Ross’]] screentime TO SHAME!!!
* ShockingElimination: Seriously? He lost? How is that possible?

John Quale is a singer/songwriter, and creator of the stage character Prince Poppycock. The act started in 2006 when a friend asked Quale to sing at a nightclub in Los Angeles. The only catch was that he had to wear a wig. Cue Prince Poppycock's wild wig and whiteface makeup. Since then, Prince Poppycock has come into the world's attention when he performed on [[AmericasGotTalent ''America's Got Talent'']].

* BetterThanItSounds: It's a guy who dresses up in glitter and heels and sings opera. Really.



* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: There are too many awesome moments to list.
** ...But that won't stop the fandom from trying. Bohemian Rhapsody, anyone?
** Or the [[AmericasGotTalent America’s Got Talent]] auditions, where Piers thought PP would be just another one of the HopelessAuditionees.
** Sometimes the simplest "You big ninny," can be so much awesome.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Too many to list.



* EarWorm: Rise Up and Shout.



* FetishFuel: Prince Poppycock is pretty much a dictionary picture example of this trope.
** High heels, glitter, wig, face paint, partial drag...



* TheWoobie: Aww, poor Prince got kidnapped and dropped on the other side of the planet without a friend in the world who can help him. *Hug*
