Simon Cowell will join the America’s Got Talent judges for season 11. The creator of the ‘Got Talent’ format, Cowell is – directly and indirectly – responsible for dozens of careers in the entertainment industry and his blunt observations have garnered him a following of millions.
“America’s Got Talent” wrapped its tenth season on Sept. 16 after several grueling weeks where singers, dancers, magicians, comedians, ventroliquists, and daredevils battled it out to win one million dollars and the chance to showcase their talents in their own show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas this October. Ten finalists made it to Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Who reigned victorious? Paul Zerdin the ventriloquist! Zerdin is the second ventriloquist to win the show, behind Terry Fator who won in 2007. I had the opportunity to chat with this extremely talented ventriloquist during a conference call with reporters.
America’s Got Talent is celebrating it’s 10th season by having some amazing performances this year. One of the more innovative and interesting ones comes from the Japanese Dance troupe group Siro A. Their performance blends dance with, theatrical trappings to make something unique.
I’m starting to feel really old. It’s already the 10th anniversary for NBC’s seminal talent competition America’s Got Talent. One of this year’s top contenders is ventriloquist Paul Zerdin. He tells us what it’s like to be part of AGT’s landmark year, ventriloquism and more.
