Tuesday (September 13) night the final four will perform to determine the winner of Season Six.  The judges are Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel:

Some interesting facts about the top rated America's Got Talent:

1.  Created by Simon Cowell.

2. Regis Philbin was host in Year One.

3.  Piers Morgan is the only judge to sit from Year One.

4.  The winners have been:

  Year One      11 year old singer Bianca Ryan
  Year Two     Ventriloquist Terry Fator
  Year Three   Opera singer Neal Boyd
  Year Four     Singer Kevin Skinner
Year Five     Singer Kevin Grimm
                       (#2 was Jackie Evancho, my favorite, who thus far has been
                        the only participant to sell a million albums)

Anna Graceman did not survive.

My picks are:

#4  Poplyfe

#3  Landau Eugene Murphy Jr:  Landau has a personal story that reminds me of  Ted Williams (right).  No, not the baseball player, but the homeless person who was discovered to have The Golden Voice.  Landau is a thirty-six year old car washer who sings like Frank Sinatra.  He should go back to him for the finals and not try Dean Martin again.
#2  Team iLuminate

#1  Silhouttes

Team iLuminate is best suited for Las Vegas, but there is something about themes and patriotism that make the Silhouttes my choice to win.

The Dow Jones Industrials crept up 69 to 11,061, with the rest of the world mostly down.  Gold fell $35/toz to $1824, with the WTI Cushing Spot at $88/barrel and the Dated Brent Spot at $113/barrel.

I loved seeing so many acts in this show. I think they could make this show 3 hours and people would watch without even a bathroom break. I find it difficult to believe that Landau is over 40 and let’s hope America identifies with the talent that put Vegas on the map as an entertainment mecca. Oh man, I am so grateful for my DISH Network employee Sling adapter because I can’t watch TV at night and I’m so busy I don’t have time at home even but I do have lots of time during conference calls, in lines and when I’m on the phone with my wife. (JK sweetie!)
