Default America's Got Talent- who is your pick to win it all??

Basing it on who would be the best headliner for a Las Vegas show i would have to pick Prince Poppycock. I think that Michael Grimmes did an amazing job, and he will get picked-up by a record label no matter what happens. Jackie is an amazing talent, but she is just too young, and sorry to say i would not pay $$$ to see her in a show in Vegas. Defying Gravity would be a great vegas show too. The best vegas show would be Prince Poppycock & Defying Gravity!

My choice is Prince Poppycock .However ,American has a track record of not picking the best talent ,example :Adam Lambert on American Idol .My fear is that they will not vote for the Prince for the same reason they did not vote for Lambert .

Secondly although they keep on stressing on the show that the 10 year old has never been in the limelight before she is appearing Dec.2 at Carnegie Hall .She is also appearing at the Rockerfeller Center Christmas show .

Fighting Gravity to me is great and I could see them winning as well.

Rita thinks Michael Grimmes will win. My prediction is little Jackie will win based upon her YouTube popularity.

Once again the voters got it wrong .If everyone was blindfolded and just listened to the Prince sing he would have won . Simon Cowell is the Exectutive Producer of the show .I would venture to say that he will sign his highness to a mega record deak

Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion but that sounds like sour grapes when you lump everyone that did not agree with you as wrong! They are only wrong in your opinion, not their own.
Rita's pick won by majority vote and my pick lost so she got it correct!

Everything on this thread and 90% of the threads on this site is opinion .My opinion is that the voters chose not to have a Gay winner which is what occurred on American Idol .

Peggy and I only care for singers who pronounce the words clearly when they sing. Jackie does that Prince Poppycock does that, but Michael Grimm does not.

If Michael was on AI he would not have made it to the top 20 . IMHO PRINCE POPPYCOCKwill have the best career of anyone ever on this show .

Yep America has got it wrong again.

I find it hard to believe that Michael Grimm will fill a large theater each night in Ceaser's Palace no less. He is a good singer but will people pay and sit through a 90 minute show of him alone? Maybe they will? We shall see.

As for Poppycock and Gravity they have an excellent shot of getting offered a show in Vegas win or no win. I think both have a great future ahead of them. I love Poppycock my favorite song was when he did Queen.
Such a fun, upbeat, take me away to Poppycock's world kinda show.

Look at the band Mosaic from Got Talent a few years ago they are doing well with Royal Caribbean. I've seen them on the ship it was an awesome show. They did not win that year on Talent but their career took off.

Winning Talent or idol or other shows does not always mean you will be a star for many years to come. Many people go on to win Talent/Idol etc. and you never hear from them again and the runners up do well.

I hope Royal Caribbean signs on Poppycock!! :razz:

Talent is over Dancing with the Stars is up next! :-D

I've been a Queen devotee since their inception .In my opinion there will never be another Freddie Mercury ,however ,if Brian May is reading this ,he must contact Prince Poppycock to front the band .I know with certainty that Brian is looking for singers .I had suggested Ryan Starr but the Prince is fantastic ,a majestic voice .

I still have to watch the last hour of the show, but I'm still disappointed at the outcome, I really thought PP would take it. I do, however think he'll be going places regardless of this show, he does have a good voice and can entertain..

Prince Poppycock has the advantage of being a singer as well as an entertainer .He does not need to be the PP to have a great career .However ,he is a one of a kind talent
