What do we care about in a winner takes all finale? Who won!! What do we get? Usually not much else, but we have to get through the hour to find out who the grand champion is.
There was way too much Jerry and some rather boring performances except for the Leona Lewis “Better in Time” act.
Jerry made the insight “everybody wants their favorite to win”. Well, Jerry, we didn’t think they wanted their favorite to lose. We will tell you, you aren’t our favorite.
Time for the one at a time elimination, let’s see how we did…
First out: Queen Emily
Clearly the least talented.
Second To Depart: Donald Braswell
Looks like he bored the audience too.
Well, we have to say that so far we are right on for what we expected. Could it continue? Not quite.
Third to go… Nuttin But Stringz
No idea what people were thinkin’. These guys were 1 or 2, but they didn’t get to the final 2? Still, not too shabby for the final pick of the night.
Second Place?? Eli Mattson
Won’t matter, we know who we will be listening to on CD in the next year, and it won’t be Neil.
First Place! Neil E. Boyd!!
We don’t totally believe that America voted for an Opera Singer. And we know people would not pay to see an Opera Singer by himself in Vegas. So, we have no clue what this finale was all about.
Still, Neil is good and we hope next year, we have fewer singers in the finale.
