I attended my last Idaho Shakespeare Festival play of the season last night. After a rainy, gloomy, cool day, the skies were mostly clear but it was really cold. I about froze in the outdoor amphitheater. My girlfriend who goes with me didn't show, and the play, The Woman in Black (the Festival does more than Shakespeare), was a good old-fashioned creepy ghost story. I have to confess, there were a few times I needed someone sitting next to me that I could hold onto. Especially when the "ghost" walked down the aisle right in front of me. Aaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!
Anyway, when I got home, I quickly sped through the recording of last night's results show to discover who are the four finalists for America's Got Talent. I am so tickled. I voted for all four of them on Tuesday night. They were my favorites of the season. No matter who wins, I'll be okay with it. Best group of finalists in the show's brief history.
I'll add these comments:
- Jackie Evancho's voice is so amazing and she is headed for fame. No doubt about that. But she is a little girl, and I don't think this child opera singer with the voice of an angel would be right for a Vegas act. Oh, but that voice.
- If a Michael Grimm album gets made, I'm buying it. There is something so great about his tone and delivery. I have loved every single one of his performances.
- Prince Poppycock. Gracious. He is so outrageous, so over-the-top. But he is also a showman and has a terrific voice. He seems to have been born to be a Vegas act. Just his makeup alone could be an act. LOL!
- And then there is Fighting Gravity (I've been calling them Defying Gravity all this time). So original. So fun to watch. I can see them touring the country and folks flocking to see their act wherever they go. I don't know which of these college guys thought up this act, but he is or they are genius!!!!!
GOOD LUCK, EVERYONE!
