Howie Mandel is remembering Norm Macdonald. The America's Got Talentjudge addressed the late comedy star during Tuesday's AGT finals, and later opened up to ET about the loss.

"I am heartbroken, absolutely," Mandel told ET's Matt Cohen on the carpet after the big show. "It was a shock."

Macdonald died Tuesday morning after a nine-year private battle with cancer, his management firm, Brillstein Entertainment, told Deadline. The news of his death hit the comedy world hard, and Mandel explained how he heard about it shortly before production began.

"Right before I got here today, it came across the wire," Mandel shared, explaining that Macdonald's death was so surprising because, "Obviously, he wasn't [public] with his diagnosis."

Howie Mandel is the new resident grouch. The normally happy-go-lucky comedian has earned himself a "mean" reputation during this season of "America' s Got Talent" and Tuesday' s auditions were no different. "What is your problem?" Cowell asked. But Mandel compared their performance to "a talent show recital as opposed to a million dollar act." "If you were on sale right now in (Las) Vegas, you would have a hard time selling a ticket," the "Deal or No Deal" alum added.

"He gave me some of my favorite moments ever on SNL," Mandel shared. "He was so funny, so pure, so authentic, so real."

Mandel made a reference to the unfortunate news during Tuesday's show, after stand-up comedian Gina Brillon -- who is one of two comics to make it to the finals this year alongside Josh Blue -- delivered her comedy set to a roaring, laughing audience.

"I just want to say this because I need to, one of the greats of comedy passed today, Norm Macdonald passed today, and it broke my heart," Mandel shared while giving feedback after Brillon's performance. "Having you and seeing you and Josh on the show today brings us back and lets us know that laughter is still alive and laughter is the best medicine."

Mandel told ET after the show that having two talented comedians make it this far feels particularly special with the loss of Macdonald.
