    cool beans... but I don't think anything he does will ever equal that first performance on AGT... when he caught the whole world by surprise...

    Oh, I think it will - he's that good, and there's nobody doing that kind of music these days. There's a big audience with the baby boomers.

    I love this guy... it was obvious he didn't like it when it came down between him and Anna Graceman for the last spot, and, when he won the spot, his response was to glance over at her with a genuinely unhappy look and give her a big hug, and then, after giving a brief comment to thank folks, walk off the stage, refusing to join in the end-of-show celebrations...

    Me too, and I only know of him thanks to you.

    On how he won, it reminds me of Michael Grimm's reaction. He rushed over to the little girl he beat and asked her if she was okay. And then he was just in a daze. He said "Wow" a couple of times, like he just couldn't believe it.

    Starts at 1:25.

    it's bulls*** that Anna didn't go on to the final four... I can't hardly even remember the other three acts...

    lemme see...

    PopLyfe...? great kids, but musically they're entirely forgettable...

    Silhouettes...? f*** 'em with their lame-ass pandering patriotic crap...

    Team iLuminate...? impressive, but who'd want to watch this stuff more'n, say, five or ten minutes...

    Thanks BD and Bayou!

    Damn. Shades of Frank sent shivers....

    I thought he was lip synching until he did that slight stumble to prove it wasn't..
