Recycled percussions was the last act to perfom on the finals of America’s Got Talent. This act is completely unique and puts on quite a show. When it comes to originality, they remind me of The Blue Man Group, a highly successful act in Las Vegas.
Kevin Skinner is the favorite, but Recycled Percussions may take it all.
Grandma Lee was great tonight. She is one of my favorites. She is the dark horse to win this.
The Texas Tenors Sing Frank Sinatra’s My Way during America’s Got Talent finals.
They really are cheesy like the judges said, but talented. These guys could actually win.
Lawrence Beaman sings Barry White’s Your My First, My Last, My Everything.
He does a good job. Watch video.
Voices of Glory Sing Whitney Houston’s Greatest Love of All in America’s Got Talent Finals.
This was their best performance throughout the entire competition. They were fantastic!
Kevin Skinner sings Arrowsmith’s I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing. I’m a big fan of Kevin, but I don’t think this is his type of music.
Kevin tried to show another side, but it was actually off key, quite a bit. I don’t think he can hear the music. I think he needs to wear an ear monitor so he can hear himself and the music.
I still love Kevin overall. He is pure and sings from the heart.
Piers gives Kevin a standing ovation. He tells him he is not the best singer, but he is unique because he has heart. He said that he is a great American story and would like to see him win the million dollars.
Barbara Padilla sings Puccini’s O Mio Babbino Caro on America’s Got Talent finals
Wow! She is amazing. Another BRAVO performance. Watch video
Patrick Swayze, who fought a long, hard battle for two years with pancreatic cancer, has died Monday at age 57.
Swayze’s publicist Annett Wolf says that Swayze died Monday with his family at his side.
Swayze was best known for films such as “Dirty Dancing” and “Ghost” which put him on the map as a film star.
We will miss you Patrick. Thank you for your brave fight. Our hearts go out to your wife, Lisa and your family.
Rest in Peace
Brett Favre won his debut in Minnesota as the Vikings beat Cleveland 34-20 behind Adrian Peterson’s 180 rushing yards and three touchdowns. The opening game, Minnesota vs Cleveland, has been billed as the Brett Favre and Adrian Peterson Show.
“I haven’t played with an offense like this,” Favre said. “It starts with 28 [Peterson], but I’ll tell you what — that offensive line is pretty impressive.”

Jack Kramer, tennis legend and promoter, died of cancer on September 12, 2009 at his home in Los Angeles. He was 88.
ESPN’s Cliff Drysdale reported the death during the Rafael Nadal-Juan Martin Del Potro semifinal at the U.S. Open.
Kramer, Wimbledon and two-time United States singles champion, was the leading promoter of the professional tennis tours in Los Angeles for 60 years. He was a world class tennis player particularly known for his consistent serve and volley attack, powerful serve and forehand.
“He put more continuing pressure on an opponent than any other player I ever saw or played against,” Ted Schroeder, Kramer’s partner for two United States doubles championships, told The Associated Press in 2002. “That goes all the way back to Bill Tilden.”
Kramer was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1968. The Los Angeles Tennis Open was known as the Jack Kramer Open — the only World Tour event to be named for a player.
