America’s Got Talent Finale: Chicken catcher Kevin Skinner wins over cancer survivor Barbara Padilla


This is what this show is all about! The unassuming country singer, known as the “chicken catcher’ Kevin Skinner wins over Barbara Padilla, gifted and survivor opera singer. We really liked Kevin’s very first performance. He blew it on his last. That was the Aerosmith “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” version we wouldn’t want to hear again! Over all Barbara Padilla was consistent, flawless and a powerhouse and should have won the competition. She is destined for greater things. She should be just fine.


‘America’s Got Talent’ Discovery: Barbara Padilla


Barbara Padilla’s Performance. This cancer survivor’s performance brings tears to the eyes.

America got quite the surprise on Wednesday night’s "America’s Got Talent" when Barbara Padilla got up to sing!

Barbara was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, but now resides in Houston, TX with her husband and 3-year-old daughter. The talented soprano was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma and underwent several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. She feared that she might lose her voice, but, as she displayed on last night’s show, she not only beat the cancer, but she can sure hold a note!

"America’s Got Talent" airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
