"Re: Jim...AGT 'fix'"
Oh, I knew she'd never 'win'. My husband
had a writer's convention in Vegas, and we saw Terry Fator's (the
ventriloquist guy who won before), signs up for his show. There is no
way that little girl could do a Vegas show...not with child labor laws
and such. Besides, from what I've heard, when they win those
competition shows, they OWN those 'winners'. One girl who got cut from
the top ten in a past season of American Idol told us that Paula Abdul
told her she voted to cut her, cuz she knew it was better for her
career. If you watch Kelly Clarkson on anything, her spark and energy
are GONE. She does not seem happy.
Anyway, the public exposure
this little angel got is what was important. I think the producers did
her a favor in keeping her in, knowing she'd never be able to fulfill
the requirements the 'winner' must do...but they saw/knew talent when
they heard it, and gave her the audience she'd not get otherwise. Kudos
to them for that.
I can see her on Broadway in Les Mis or maybe even something made just for her! Awesome talent.
