It's a no-brainer. The singer wins every year, regardless of whether he deserves to or not. What 5 years of AGT has shown is that only singers win. Pity.
You young people just don't get it!! It is about the act that can give a sold out performance in eVgas every night and team illuminate just won't be able to do it. Landau will because the ones who pay big money to see the shows is the over 40 and over crowd. The young people are not going to pay a hundred or more to see a vegas show and have a packed house. Get real people, if you saw the clientele that goes to the shows in Vegas then you will know what i am talking about
Iluminate should have taken it! I'm sick of people thinking that a landau is the only singer on earth. Hell yes, I would watch them for an hour in a half...hell, I watch them for 2 hours. Are you all nuts? If you can't watch them perform, then that's your problem.
Iluminate will only come around once....and once only! There will be many landaus in the future. Ever think about that???? No? I guess not. America can't seem to understand, that this is a talent show, that you will only see a unique, inspirational act come along one time. For the love of god, let a non-singing act win for once!
Landau is a very talented singer and if he wins we wont be disappointed at all but what happens when the Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin songs start getting old and worn out? He IS very one dimensional in his Frank spin offs and at some point he's going to have to leave his comfort zone, then what? Will people be paying one hundred bucks to listen to a Black man with Frank Sinatra's voice singing hip hop or pop songs? NO. He WILL wear out the Frank songs and fade away. Team Illuminate on the other hand is dazzling with their perfect routines, their technology and their special effects and have shown new and amazing routines each time and will ALWAYS be an evolving act. landau is more of a novelty because hes a black man pulling himself up from nothing to becoming a very unique performer. As others say here, singers ARE a dime a dozen and talent isnt ALWAYS "God given" sometimes you have to work hard and sacrifice to becomming the best. We are from the SFBA and really enjoyed Poplyfe's run and look forward to seeing them perform somewhere soon. Sorry, Silhouettes but you are very talented but extremely BORING and watching a bunch of amped up children running around making hand puppets behind a curtain ISNT my idea of entertainment. Team Iluminate SHOULD win and DESERVES to win. What bothers me the most about these public voting entities are that kids 21 and under are allowed to jam text lines with votes to tell US, the 21 year old and over crowd what we should be watching in Vegas. Somewhere,a 13 year old kid is breaking his bank sending 100 texts voting for Poplyfe when he wont even be able to see them perform. This will a case of, no matter who wins team Iluminate will become the most famous, most watched and richest act in this country and in the end thats ALL that matters.
OK, IF SINGERS WANT TO WIN A SHOW, WHY DONT THEY JUST GO ON AMERICAN IDOL? SERIOUSLY? AMERICAS GOT TALENT IS TO GIVE PEOPLE A CHANCE TO DO ACTS THAT ARENT JUST SINGING SO LANDAU AND POPLYFE SHOULDNT WIN. AND WTF HOW THE HELL DID ILUMINATE GET 3RD?!?!? STUPID AMERICANS !!!!!!!!!! AND SILHOUTTES IS JUST PEOPLE DANCING BEHIND A BLANKET .GOD.
I ve seen a few polls where the votes were over a thousand like this one and they all have Landau winning 2 to over the next closest so unless they are all skewed landau wins...
and he should how long can you watch people dance with lights on ...i mean really could u sit there for 1.5 hours and watch that.... i rather listen to landau
Really hoping Landau wins! :D Although, for the first time ever, I won't be disappointed with whoever wins, I've love them all!
How can y'all say Team iLuminate does the same thing but then Silhouettes and Landau get a free pass for doing the same thing too? Landau sings the same genre but yet it's OK for him? Silhouettes does the same type of dance/pace in every performance and always spell out some soft-hearted words or resemble some shape/monument yet that's OK too? Team iLuminate is the only act in the finals that does something different every performance. Different theme, different songs, different pace, different formations. I mean, they used the entire stage last night for the first time and did some formations that look cool from the aerial view. It's OK for people to prefer the other acts but to say that iLuminate doesn't do anything different is disrespectful to their act!
Team iLuminate all the way !!!!
But the REAL winners will be the Audience (Live and TV) after Jackie sings Nessun Dorma. I predict that mayhem will erupt, just as it did when she sang it at Boca Raton and on the Britains got talent Finale. ~W W~
Landau exemplifies genuine humility. The American public never likes arrogant and haughty contestants and Landau is just plain likable.
As far as talent goes Landau still wins because...... he is the most marketable of the finalists. For the judges this is about marketability. For the American public this is about likability.
His is an emotionally engaging story: "minimum wage to millionaire".
another singer to win??? NOOOOOO..,
GO TEAM ILUMINATE!!! they are original and completly different!!! :D
I think 3 acts could win. Polplye's flame out wasn't as catastrophic as the upside down piano player, but they are out. Sorry kids......wanting it, does not make you unique.
So its Silhouettes, LEM or TI. I think it was an amazing final. Three acts good enough to win in other years. So I believe the winner will be determined less by ability and more by which act, more accurately which type of act can generate the broadest base, appeal to the greatest number of voters. Any of the three could win.
Persoonally, I loved TI, but S brought tears to my eyes. For my money its one of those two. Flip a coin. If it matters, I'd watch Silhoettes on tv, but pay money, and go to a theater to watch Team Illuminate.
Last, the million dollars.....isn't. Read the small print. If TI has 15 members its $3,333 a year per member for 20 years. The small print says, "the million dollars to be paid out in 20 equal payments annually." Don't quit your day job.
I wish they all could win, but if I was in Vegas I would be most excited and willing to drop money to see Team iLuminate. They're fresh and exciting and very talented so I think they will likely win this. I feel compassion and really bad for PopLyfe because they are all great and talented kids and they really tried hard, .. a bit too hard and it just fell apart on this final show. I still love them and hope they succeed and become a big success. Landau is a very nice and talented guy and I like him too. Silhouettes are a great act too. I like them all.
I believe Landau Eugene will win it all. His voice is amazing and blew me away. I think he deserves it the most too. He was like the Susan Boyle of America's Got Talent. When I first saw him in the auditions, I thought 'gee, what's he going to do...yodel or something?' But his voice totally blew me away. His story was amazing...homeless at 19? Wow. The Silhouettes are great, but their youngest performer is 3....can you imagine a 3 year old preforming in Las Vegas? Certainly not! And can they really make that an hour long show? Poplyfe....they totally blew their chances of winning tonight. :P Fail is all I can say. And team ILuminate....they're just getting real old, real fast. Maybe you just have to be there to experience it, but I personally think it's a tad boring now. A bit too repetitive. Not only is Landau best suited for Vegas, but he's a heck of a singer too and I believe that'll take him all the way. ;)
I think that Landau is the most likeable singer ever on the show. The Sillouttes are a joke, and they get way to much credit. NO ONE would pay hundreds of dollars to see people dance behind a screen. The Iluminate probably will win as a huge favorite. I personally really like PopLyfe though
i think the Silhouettes should win but with the way america loves voting for singer think Landau will win. Which makes me very sad im sick to death of singers winning AGT when theres now 3 shows out there for singers to audition for IE the voice american idol and the x factor. I think its about time a non singing act won AGT.
Well put, Marie. No singer, this year or any year comes close to Jackie
Team iLuminate should win hands down - but I fear Landau has a lot of fans. Sigh :-(
I agree with most of your commentary although I would like to see LEM win. But I totally agree on the Million Bucks thing. What a bunch of chincy bastards! Cough up the million NOW!
I totally agree landau is the best talent and the silhouettes and team illuminate basically do the same shit everytime plus poplyfe just blew it.
OMG! You have to be kidding! They suck something horrible!!! The harmony is not only nonexistent...it is offensive when the male voices chime in. The lead (SINGER?) is not nearly ready to be anything but a backup singer...IF THAT!!! She can't keep a tune. But...in a year or so, if they get rid of the dead-wood in the group, they might get somewhere. That kid DID rock Queen on the guitar. Again...as they are now...they suck! I would demand my money back if presented with that as entertainment in Vegas...or even Paterson, NJ.
