It was the night for winner’s and America’s Got Talent four finalists; Prince Poppycock, Michael Grimm, Jackie Evancho, and Fighting Gravity, performed amazing duets with established music stars. The finale was a live show on a Hollywood stage.
Prince Poppycock and, the royal Donna Summer, sang a medley of, “Last Dance,” and, “Enough Is Enough.” Prince Poppycock again wore another version of his flamboyant English Victorian prince attire. Donna Summer has yet another new CD out titled, “To Paris With Love.”
Michael Grimm, the soulful gentle man finalist from Mississippi, joined in with one of his favorite idols, Jewel, and sang a wonderful rich rendition of, “Bobby McGee,” accompanied by his guitar.
Fighting Gravity and Lionel Richie performed, “Dancing On The Ceiling.” Of course there was plenty of action on the ceiling by, Fighting Gravity. Lionel Richie in his original video of, “Dancing On The Ceiling,” literally danced on the ceiling.
America’s Got Talent’s ten year old little angel, Jackie Evancho, with the adult rich operatic voice sang, “Time To Say Good-bye,” with, Sarah Brightman. Jackie has nothing but a fantastic future ahead of her with her amazing gifted voice. Her duet blew everyone away in the audience.
Of course there were the normal compiled videos featuring some of the interesting rejected contestants of season five. Even, “The America’s Got Talent All Stars,” sang and performed live to, “I Gotta Feeling,” by the Black Eyed Peas. Of course these star’s nights weren’t a good one because we recall wondering why they even tried out for this show. Back stage preparation, rehearsals, including the three judges; Howie Mandel, Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne’s off stage interaction were seen via videos. Nick Cannon’s antics as the super host were viewed too.

Second place went to Jackie Evancho.
