me too! maybe he wasn't as great last night (according to Piers ... which I do kind of agree with - I love the campyness the best) - but he was far and away the best & my fave from all the preformers...

I voted 10x from my phone, my cell, my dh's cell plus my computer & texts from my cell & dh's cell LOL - so 60 votes from me hahaha

I'm Andrea - I have three boys - 12 year old twins & an 11 year old

We voted for Poppycock. Hs sound was all screwed up, and he was supposed to have a white horse pulling his chariot. The sound guys were ripping apart his armor while he was on the stairs still.

I still thought it was stunningly beautiful, and I think it shows his great range.

I think Jackie sang beautifully, but if I'm going to go to Vegas, the last thing I want to do is watch a child sing church hymns.

Come ponder with me about food!

I love Grimm. I think he is just awesome. I loved Grasso too and was super bummed he didn't get put through. I loved his big tricks, but I really loved the sleight of hand tricks he did that got him tossed out the first time..

Jackie is an amazingly talented little girl. She needs to protect that gift and then get herself out to Broadway when she's a little older. I think a win for her now would ultimately be detrimental.

putting on my tomato proof suit... I don't feel the Poppycock love. But I did find it very touching what he said about being a kid who gets made fun of and the importance of following your dreams. I just don't really appreciate his dream as much as most everyone else does!
I'm a little surprised actually that America voted him through with that super patriotic, over the top number. I thought a guy prancing around in a wig and full makeup singing the national anthem would piss a lot of people off. Guess I was wrong! (or else a lot of other people used their 60 votes all on him, too!)

I like fighting gravity. I think what they do is visually interesting even if its not technically difficult. I can totally see them in Vegas.

My top 4 would have been Grasso, Grimm, Fighting Gravity, hmm.. I don't know who as a fourth. maybe Anna and Patrick.

That is a classic Broadway number, James Cagney...everyone loves James Cagney.

Or Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland

I think as long as you are being respectful and giving it your all people love cheese. They don't like it if someone is being vulgar or crass while singing the Anthem but cheese is fine.

I hadn't even voted before but I had to mostly due to the dancing capital building making me laugh.


I voted for Poppycock and Grimm.

I agree Jackie is a little young and could hurt herself.

I am shocked! I didn't expect tonight's outcome.

Loved Jackie and Sara Brightman. Wonderful!

I am shocked Poppycock didn't win! I think the little girl is better than Brightman but I couldn't imagine her working the strip nor any child performer. Thought it was a little weird Brightman told her to save her voice lol.

I don't get the winner at all. He wasn't special or anything.. just kareoke. I just don't get it. Never liked defying gravity. Dunno why.
