    interesting show this year, some good acts for once.

    I really though studio one: young beast society was awesome their last 2 performances. From a "Talent" stand point they were up with jackie in my opinion. And agree on the earlier comments about grasso's tricks. Totally see-through gimmicks...

    I see that now, after doing a Wikipedia search on Terry Fator. Wiki tells me that after his win, he wound up gettting a couple of shows at the LV Hilton. Not 100% sure if that was a formal prize, or if someone just decided to offer him a few shows. Wikipedia goes on to say that those few shows turned into a run of 3 shows per month from January 2008 to May 2008. That in turn led to the long term deal (5 years) at The Mirage.


    I poked around on Wikipedia some more and I get the impression that this show (America's Got Talent) really isn't so much about finding the next big headliner act for Las Vegas. To me, that is kinda interesting because I sort of was under the impression that it was. Kinda changes my perspective on the acts.

    I was really hoping FG would win. Of the singers prince poppycock was my favorite. I was very disapointed he went strait opera with his final performance. I thought it was a huge mistake to go head to head with jackie. He should of stuck with what he does best put on a fun show taking a song and making it his. I think that is what cost him votes imo.

    Well I just got some sweepstakes thing in the mail yesterday from Am Ex. Win $1M USD over a period of years (25 or 30) or take the $500k USD lump sum.

    Youre right. I didnt even think about him being from Oregon. The way the layout looked, I just assumed they were alternating them. I got an email for the show here this morning and everyone is listed.

    Someone mentioned Piers.. I heard or read somewhere in the last few days that he has signed on for next year. I guess he'll be doing both.

    He won season 2 like Einselen said and while he was a ventriloquist act, his main hook is that he is a very good at impersonating singers. So while he is a ventriloquist and an impersonator, he is also a singer. I don't think he would have won if he was simply a ventriloquist.

    Thanks - I deleted that question from my post but I guess not fast enough - NBC.com is streaming the whole thing, so I am watching the first hour over there...

    Not if I remember correctly:

    Season 1 - no show - just the million

    Season 2 - there might have been a one-night-only show, but I don't think so

    Season 3 - one night only, in Vegas (by that, I don't mean there was a tour that included one show in Vegas; there was only one show, period)

    Last season - a 2-to-3-month show (something like mid-September to mid-December, I think), again in Vegas

    In each case, when there was a show, it was an "America's Got Talent" show that had a number of acts. (Terry Fator's show was not an AGT prize.)
