I was in the gym and accidentally watched the show for the very first time. This is the only time I watch TV on weekdays! I didn’t realize it’s the finals. With my tangled headphones on, I watched the finalists walked on the stage-four acts to perform tonight. The host, Nick Cannon, gave the show an infectious youthful appeal.
The judges made comments on looking for something special that they haven’t seen before on the show. This is in fact, the final show. Sharon Osbourne said she was expecting a million dollar performance. This show seemed less painful to watch than American Idol.
1. Prince Poppycock (Opera Singer)-He said he saved his best for last and wore a bizarre, flamboyant red/silver costume onstage. It almost reminded me of Willy Wonka. Piers Morgan was quick to criticize and commented on the self-indulgence Prince put on his final performance. Prince was supposed to be the fun one and he took this performance so seriously. Sharon Osbourne was quick to Prince’s defense that this was his night. I found the performance “not too spectacular”.
2. Michael Grimm-Michael said he wanted to win the competition for his grandparents. His grandparents were probably screaming while watching the show from Mississippi. He said he was ready to win.
Michael belted out “When a Man Loves a Woman” version-of course, I already love the song! Sharon stood up on her feet and said she had goosebumps listening throughout the whole song. Great performance! Sharon’s husband, Ozzy Osbourne, bet $100 that Michael will win. I think Michael will win. I love his version better compared to Michael Bolton’s. He wowed all three judges. Howie Mandel thought this was his best performance to date. Morgan added that this is what he considered a “million-dollar” performance that would win America.
I think I will bet $100 that he will win on the finale.
3. Jackie Evancho-Jackie sang “Ave Maria” and performed like a little angel on stage. She was very excited to be in the show as a ten years old from Pittsburgh, PA. She said she missed out on being able to go to school, play with her pets, and sleeps in but it was well worth it. She was having fun and if she wins, it ‘s a dream come true. Howie described the performance somewhat as ethereal; as in angelic; something you’ll envision towards the light. Morgan added it was a perfection-a combination of raw talent and great potential. Yes, I agree-Jackie might beat my first favorite, Michael Grimm.
4. Fighting Gravity-As a dance group from VA, the performance was excellent in technicality, originality, and fun presentation. Morgan said no matter what happened, the group will have a future in Vegas but Jackie Evancho was still his favorite. Mandel liked the variety and the uniqueness of the dance and encouraged the American public to vote. It was an entertaining performance but not so captivating.
I did bet on a cup of coffee. Wow, I didn’t know I can last this long on the elliptical! Something about the American talent show with two British judges.
