America’s Got Talent
The “America’s Got Talent” winner is Landau Eugene Murphy. Known as the voice of Frank Sinatra, Murphy was crowned during the season six finale Wednesday night, as he sang his way up to the top. The baritone singer will walk away with a million-dollar prize and a contract to perform and headline a show at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
On Tuesday night, Murphy sang Sinatra’s “My Way” to “seal the deal” as judge Howie Mandal put it. A rendition of the song that Piers Morgan called “a million-dollar performance.” Sharon Osbourne praised the emotion and said Murphy had saved the best for last.
All four acts will fill the bill at the Caesar’s Palace show in Las Vegas with Murphy headlining next month. The America’s Got Talent finale also saw the return of last years runner-up 10-year-old Jackie Evancho. Moreover, the performing were bands “One Republic,” and “Def Lepoard” along with signers Stevie Wonder, Tony Bennet, LeAnn Rimes, and Pattie LaBelle.
The America’s Got Talent runner-up was another dance group with a twist called “Silhouettes.” The larger group of mostly young dancers would perform behind a backlit shade casting shadows on to the shade to tell a usually patriotic story as they performed.
Coming up third, in what seemed to be the favorite to win was “Team Illuminate,” an American dance group with a twist of wearing computer-controlled lights to create a story while performing.
The fourth-place talent finisher was the band “Pop Lyfe” who had a great run through the competition, but while covering music by “Queen,” they did not have a good performance.
