“I’m busier than a one-legged man in a tap-dancing contest.”
It was you!
You get the old FD ((HIG!!!))
Seacrest: “LIVE on next weeks show....he plays the guitar with his prosthetic leg!” (ya gotta know they need to up the ante on the sob stories)
My clock says the story of this guy started earlier than 36 minutes
Though, I do have to say his story isn’t pathetic. It is pretty traumatic.
But you are deemed the winner.
Sob story notwithstanding, he’s dang good!
I miss Pauler as well. She was nutty as a fruitcake but she was OUR fruitcake. And, I really, really miss Simon. I hate the new judges but I do love Keith Urban.
Well, a one-legged tap-dancing singer is a new angle...
Whoever said 32 minutes in the winner for the sad story drama
Mags gets first with a dead on 32 minutes. I get 2nd for second half hour
With 1 legged guy.
Liked his second rendition better than 1st.
I guess I may be de-sensitized, having worked with so many soldiers sailors, and marines with multiple amputations and brain injuries...I guess I dont see his amputation as something to be “advertised” on his attempted climb to the top.
Thanks, I’ve never heard of it.
Maybe I need one of those gizmos.
I sound like Elvis in the shower, so with this, I won’t have to be naked to sing. LOL
All the judges agree he's not quite ready for this yet, though.
Mariah: You inspire me as a human being.
Keith: You strike me as a person that won't give up.
He was good, IMO. He might not have made it past Hollywood, but he at least deserved the ticket.
Yeah his version of I’m Yours was not very good but his Bon Jovi number was so much better-I actually figured they’d let him through...
The doctor told him in order to save his life they were going to have to cut his head off.
Yeah he was dead on as to when the story started.
Maybe he is a secret low level employee of the show who just loves to snark ;-)))))
What bothers me is he could have just walked up there in slacks and sang. he has a good, professional voice.
From here until the end is it “are we voting the singing or the story?”
We all here have had adversity — some great adversity. We didn’t pimp it to get ahead.
And if this guy wins (doubtful), the whispers will be “your story won — your talent in 3rd or 4th place.”
The story would be more impressive if released AFTER the competition completes or he is eliminated.
HI PEGGY!!!!!! :-D
What we truly need here is an unwed amputee mother of three that lives and works cleaning stadium bathrooms, but has a love of fabric and design (bring anyone to mind, Retro?) LMAO!
Wow. The screeching Mariah wannabe is through to Hollywood, but one-legged, tap-dancing, guitar-playing, singer that didn’t make my ears bleed doesn’t make it?
>>Mariah: You inspire me as a human being.<<
“And so few of us are...”
