The America’s Got Talent summer tour for 2010 will feature the season’s top ten performances:
Jackie Evancho – Jackie Evancho started singing when she was seven years old, after watching the movie “Phantom of the Opera.” Her mother heard Evancho singing songs from the movie and allowed her to enter a local talent contest just for fun. She finished as the runner-up and was voted the audience favorite. Eventually she participated in other talent contests and started a YouTube channel.
Prince Poppycock – John Quale has been singing from the time he could speak. Enamored with David Bowie, Depeche Mode, opera, madrigals, Gilbert and Sullivan, the Smiths and Gregorian chant, he started to write and record his own music. In 2006, Prince Poppycock was born. He was an instant hit and is extremely excited to bring Prince Poppycock to America’s Got Talent’s stage.
Fighting Gravity – Fighting Gravity is a black-light illusion dance performance, featuring brothers from the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. By competing on America’s Got Talent, Fighting Gravity wants to inspire others by showing that through hard work, determination, and some good lighting, anybody can accomplish their dreams.
