I know I'm a few days late posting my thoughts. I guess it didn't feel urgent. Well, here goes because I know you were dying to hear what I thought. <g>
4th Place: Prince Poppycock
Well, this did surprise me a bit. I expected Poppycock would rank a little higher. But I agreed with Piers. Poppycock went too serious in the finals. However, I still believe this guy has a good voice and could have a show in Vegas that would please a lot of fans. Would I pay to see him? No, probably not. But then I'm not a Vegas-act-kind-of=girl either.
3rd Place: Fighting Gravity
Now this did surprise me. A lot. I gave these guys lots of votes, and I was sure they would either win or come in second. But not to worry. These guys are headed for big shows. Audiences are going to appreciate their creativity. I would pay to see their act. I might even take a Vegas vacation to go see these guys.
2nd Place: Jackie Evancho
I'll confess, I'm not sorry Jackie didn't win. I would hate to see this child with an angelic voice living and working in Vegas. She is destined for better than that life, I'm sure.
Some folks seem to think that Michael won because his grandparents lost everything to Katrina and a sympathy vote carried him through. I don't think so. This guy's voice just made my heart melt. I love the way he sounds, and I love the way he looks in his hat. Michael got some of my votes, and I'll vote for him again when he comes out with an album.
And if I wasn't already a fan of Michael Grimm, this would have made me one. Awwwww. How adorable is this?
