* CluckingFunny: Or "Clucking Awesome", maybe, but in Season 12's first audition, two women bring a chicken named Jokgu (which Howie first mishears as "Tofu"). They claim she can play "America the Beautiful" on the piano, and the judges won't believe it until they see it. When they place Jokgu on the seat...the chicken just turns around and preens its feathers, and the handlers keep turning her around. [[spoiler: Then, just when you think they're about to buzz...The chicken begins to peck the keys, and plays "America the Beautiful" near-perfectly. Really.]] The keepers mention they are forming an entire band of musical chickens called the "Flockstars."

* RightHandCat: Referenced in Season 12. One audition involved a cat, whom the judges were allowed to pet afterwards. Simon joked that now that he's stroking a white cat, he's ready to take over the world.

* DeafComposer: Season 10 has two: Benjamin Yonattan, who continues to dance even as his eyesight is rapidly deteriorating and having a skin condition that makes him bruise and hurt himself much easier than he should; and Drew Lynch, a comedian whose severe stutter interferes with telling jokes. In Drew's case, he compensated by making most of his jokes ''about'' his stutter.

** Simon Cowell himself (who's also the franchise's creator) became a judge starting with Season 11. One 13-year-old classical singer named Laura Bretan lampshaded this in her highlight segment, knowing that if you're not good enough, Simon will say so. Compared to ''Series/AmericanIdol'', though, he seems to have softened up except for music acts, and even so, he's far more constructive instead of venomous towards singers.
