Tonight is the season finale for America’s Got Talent 2012. After weeks of auditions, performances, judge’s critiques and America’s votes, the winner of America’s Got Talent season 7 will be announced.
WARNING: AMERICA’S GOT TALENT 2012 SPOILERS AHEAD!
This post contains spoilers from the America’s Got Talent season 7 finale . Please stop reading if you do not want to know what happened or which act is the America’s Got Talent 2012 winner!
In typical America’s Got Talent 2012 fashion, they will draw out the affair to the nth degree. It’s a two hour show tonight, all to reveal a single winner. There will be quite a few guest performances tonight, including… Justin Bieber. *groan* Why?! I thought they wanted people to watch the America’s Got Talent 2012 finale, not change the channel.
In any case, they will be sure to make it a grand affair as they reveal which of the following six acts was America’s favorite:
The Untouchables – child dancing sensations
Olate Dogs – trained pooches who are adorably cute
David Girabaldi & His CMYK’s – live painters and performance artists
Tom Cotter – hilarious comic
Joe Castillo – sand artist who tells a story with each set of drawings
William Close - inventor and player of the a really effing big harp
Who will be the America’s Got Talent 2012 winner? Can’t wait to find out! *crosses fingers for Tom Cotter*
Host Nick Cannon looks even more debonnaire tonight than he did last night, sporting a white tux with a black bow tie. Lookin’ sharp, Nick!
Judge Sharon Osbourne, however, looked a bit frightening in her see-through get-up. Past a certain age, transparent garb should really be illegal…
They started the finale show with a retrospective of the season, showcasing high and low moments, from the amusing to the tragic. It was a fitting tribute to some of the huge talent that didn’t make it to the finals this year.
The first guest performance tonight was FloRida singing their new song “I Cry”. The extremely blinged mic was… interesting… but the performance was good. They sounded clean and the song has a catchy beat.
They went straight into another guest performance, with Ne-Yo performing his song “Let Me Love You Until You Learn To Love Yourself”. Quite a name for a song. It was a very upbeat performance. I’m not really a Ne-Yo fan, so it was kind of blah for me. He didn’t sound that great live, honestly. The stage effects were ridiculous and way too over the top. Lucky for me I’m not epileptic.
William Close joined up with One Republic for an awesome performance. It was a pretty sweet collaboration, and the more subdued lightning on the stage complemented the song very well.
Olate Dogs opened for Frankie J, and the Untouchables danced along with his song. He has a great voice. Didn’t understand a thing he said other than “ay yi yi,” but it was nice all the same.
They showed footage of the strangest and worst auditions of the year. This is always one of my favorite parts. The audition rounds are always my favorite part of talent competition shows, because I’m petty and enjoy laughing at people that suck. Whatcha gonna do?
I’ll tell you what they’re gonna do: bring back Burton Crane to do a remix of “Whatcha Gonna Do” with Nick Cannon and some other rappers whose names I didn’t catch. Hahahaha. AWESOME.
Remember that bleach blonde bimbo with the tight pink dress and huge bazongas that only wanted to audition to see Howard Stern? Yeah, they let her come back, too, to bounce her ample cleavage around by the judge’s stand. *facepalm*
More facepalmage when Howie Mandel brought back Big Barry as a “surprise” for Howard Stern, though I have to admit that I laughed my ass off at the set up. Howie shoved Barry in a duffel bag and dragged him into Howard’s dressing room, banging the bag against a few doorways in the process. My favorite moment?
Howie: Barry, you need to get your head in the bag.
Barry: I can’t breathe when you close the bag.
Howie: *2 second pause* Doesn’t matter.
One of my favorite groups performed next: Blue Man Group. These guys are awesome. Every time, it’s such a show. They are so unique and creative. Love.
In watching some footage of the judges, it occurs to me that Sharon Osbourne looks alarming like David Hasselhoff since she had all that work done. Ah, now I get it. An homage to The Hoff.
Thrilled to see Tom Cotter do a little roast on the judges and host. Then out came Joan Rivers to make me roll my eyes, just a little. Sharon might look like The Hoff, but Joan looks like the Joker. Why so serious? Because she can’t move her face. I’m not a big fan of Joan Rivers, but she did pretty well. Honestly, though, Tom Cotter’s roast was way more hilarious than hers.
Joe Castillo did more of his awesome sand painting to the accompaniment of the former members of the PS 22 Chorus, who sang Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory”. It was really sweet.
Finally, it’s time to get down to what the finale is all about, and eliminate one of the finalists. The first to go? The Untouchables. The judges had very kind words for the kids, some of whom were crying. Awww. I agree with America’s decision, but I hate seeing kids cry, dude.
The act coming in fifth place, and second to be sent home tonight, is Joe Castillo. I love Joe, but I can’t say that I’m surprised. There was just a high caliber of talent this year. He was very dignified and took the news well.
Third to leave the competition are David Garibaldi & His CMYKs. Now I’m getting nervous and, frankly, rather disgusted. The fact that Olate Dogs is still in the running at this stage is just… ugh.
Cripes. It’s time for Justin Bieber. Shots of silly girls in the audience bouncing around like groupies. Sigh. He sounded like crap, too, and I’m not just saying that because I don’t like his music. The singing really didn’t sound good at all, even for him.
Green Day performed and were great as usual. Huge Green Day fan here. I spent the better part of my teen years rockin’ out to “Paradise”.
William Close was the fourth finalist to get sent home tonight. Over the DOGS?! I’m getting really nervous now. And even more disappointed in America. I’m sorry, but it takes far more talent to put create amazing instruments that sound fantastic, and put together a cohesive show, than it does to train dogs. Trained well, but still… freakin’ dogs. DOGS! *rage face*
And they won. THE DOGS WON. I’m so pissed right now.
Tom Cotter, I’m so sorry that your victory was stolen from you by some jumping dogs. >.< He will go very far, and he deserved to win.
I’m going to go rant and mutter to myself now. AGT has gone to the dogs… literally.
Olate Dogs will be on the Today Show tomorrow morning, so catch that if you’re a fan.
