When I woke up this morning, I had two What’s App notices on my phone. The first was an American Idol audition from three months ago. My heart was touched both by the performers innocence and talent, and by the way the judges treated him. My eyes filled with tears as I watched the video.
The second one was from last night’s America’s Got Talent show. By the end of that video, tears were pouring from my eyes.
As I was writing this post, another performance from last night caught my eye. It touched my heart for a completely different reason so I decided to include it too.
Earlier this week, a friend sent me this video. I was VERY touched by it and sent it on to family and friends. Days later, I’m still thinking and talking about it so I’ve decided to share it on my blog. I will let the video speak for itself.
On September 4, I wrote a post saying how much I was enjoying watching America’s Got Talent this season. In that post, I shared videos of the three people or groups that were my favorites during the first of the semi-finals programs. Those three had also been among my favorites throughout the season. I was very happy when I discovered that they all made it into the finals.
The second semi-finals program was last Tuesday. The videos below were my favorite performances that night. Like the previous week, the ones I chose had been among my favorites throughout the season.
I was happy when two of my favorites that night made it into the finals, but disappointed that Luke wasn’t chosen. Everyone who moved on to the finals was excellent though, so I can’t fault the decision.
Tonight is the finals program. The Unbeatables have been the favorite of my favorites since the first time I saw them, so I’m hoping they will win. At the same time, I wish there was a way for everyone to win, because they all deserve it.
This season, I have fallen in love with America’s Got Talent. These are my three favorite performances from last night. All of their stories are incredible and inspirational and so is their music. (I didn’t see the whole show so I don’t know if my other favorite group performed.)
America’s Got Talent performances seem to consistently bring tears to my eyes. As I write this post, my tears are running down my cheeks. I started to cry when I watched the first video, but they began to pour as I watched the second one.
I saw a report of this America’s Got Talent performance on CNN a few minutes ago and searched for it on the internet. Watching it left me with tears running down my face, tears because I felt inspired, felt joy, felt hope.
In a few hours, I will be with Amma. Being touched by this video of a young man giving his all and seeing the effect he had on the judges and the crowd seems like a perfect lead-in to a day of heart opening.
It has been years since I’ve watched “America’s Got Talent” but I put it on while I was waiting to hear the results of yesterday’s U.S. election primaries. I cried when I saw this performance last night, and cried even more when I watched it on YouTube a few minutes ago.
Judge Howie Mandel loved her performance so much that he hit the Golden Buzzer which allows her to go directly to the live shows that occur towards the end of the competition.
