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

kevinskinner_wins

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.
