  • America's Got Talent: So Sue Me

    Because I don't get cable, all my TV is over the internet. I happened upon America's Got Talent and frankly, there have been three acts that totally messed with my mind...the 14-year-old opera singer:



    I mean, c'mon...14 years old? I think this is proof positive of reincarnation.

    The singer Bryan Crum who it seems doesn't actually do the singing, but something crawls out of him and sings on his behalf:



    Yeah, it's a cover version of "Something in the Air Tonight," and yeah, it's pop music but the guy's possessed when he sings.

    And then there's the 12-year old ukulele-wielding songwriter from Suffern, NY...



    She's quirky beyond her years and definitely not just a singer, but a natural entertainer.

    Whether you like the music or not doesn't really matter, because what all these three have is an incredible passion for what they do. Whether you like the kind of passion they have or not, they are definitely not phoning in their parts. I love seeing people who love music so much that is comes out of every pore of their bodies.

    Update: I think they all made it through to the finals or semifinals or whatever they're doing. I'm not familiar with the fine points of the competition aspects...

      Somebody's got to have a different opinion, so it might as well be me. I don't get anything at all from Grace. If this is the future of pop music, I'll just stay in the pasture, thank you.

        Dude, she's 12. I suspect there will be a few changes in the years to come...especially after she discovers sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

          But that can happen with anyone. I guess I'm just not cut out to be a talent scout.

          Now, Presley Barker here is a 12 year old kid, or maybe he's still 11, who can really pick guitar. And it's not just that he plays fast and accurate, he has the phrasing down right and doesn't play the same licks over and over.




          And who can forget The Collins Kids? (well, anyone who never heard of them, I guess)

            This girl got second place 4 years (or more) ago.



            I've watched the show since it began. Some things will amaze you , some will frighten and others disgust.

              Wowser, what a charmer..

              A genuine, down to earth little sweetheart with that lovely 'whiskey voice'

              Wrote and performed one hell of a tribute to her sis..

              still wiping a tear away here.
