Simon Cowell gives opera singer Daniel Emmet an impossible challenge on ‘America’s Got Talent’

Classical crossover singer Daniel Emmet thought that he was sure to sail through his audition for “America’s Got Talent.”

But as we saw on the June 19 episode of “AGT,” head judge Simon Cowell had something else in mind for this 25-year-old singer, who intended to perform an original song that was a mashup of opera and pop. He had barely begun this tune, which came across as bland and boring, when judge Simon Cowell cut him off and requested that he sing a different song.

When Emmet admitted he had not come prepared with an alternate, Cowell seemed crossed. He dispatched him from the stage and gave him just one hour to learn another song, the Il Divo hit “Passera.”

The visibly nervous neophyte returned in the appointed 60 minutes and proceeded to wow the audience, the panel and even himself with his rendition of this Italian aria.

~Golden Buzzer Acts~

When an AGT judge hits the button, an act is sent straight through to the live shows, skipping a judge vote and more rounds of competition.

Here are two amazing acts that won this distinction. 

ZurcarohZurc1

~Austrian Acrobatic Dance Troupe Zurcaroh~

America’s Got Talent host Tyra Banks didn’t waste any time picking a favorite act during the auditions round. After the final performance of the season 13 premiere, she used her one chance to press the sought-after Golden Buzzer.

The group that caught Banks’ attention is Austrian acrobatic dance troupe Zurcaroh. The dancers – who ranged in age from young children to adults – took the stage to show off their breathtaking display of gymnastic abilities.

The impressive routine featured a death-defying mix of balancing tricks, synchronized dancing, and aerial acrobatics. Audience members and judges alike were left biting their nails as performers were flung high into the air and caught by their fellow troupe members.

~Nurse Michael Ketterer Earns Golden Buzzer~

When he’s not at his day-job as a pediatric mental health nurse, Michael Ketterer, is a devoted husband and father of six. Five of Ketterer’s children were adopted from foster care and one has cerebral palsy. The Tennessee native who now resides in Orange County California is also a worship leader.

If you think his story is already amazing wait until you hear Michael Ketterer’s voice.

“Because my children come out of foster care and when you’re surviving, you can’t dream. That has been one of the most rewarding things is providing them [my kids] with a home where they are free to dream. So I’m here to show my kids that if their dad can live out his dreams, then nothing is impossible for them.”

He soulfully sang the cover of, “To Love Somebody” by the Bee Gees.

WALK MY WAY

Brynn Cartelli

I’ve been following The Voice for a while.

One of the most impressive performers is Brynn Cartelli who turned 15 while competing in the show.

Walk My Way” is a catchy tune written for her.

Brynn demonstrated her unique talent and her genuineness all the way.

The Voice has crowned Brynn Cartelli its fourteenth-season champion
Brynn, a 15-year-old from Longmeadow, MA, competed on Kelly Clarkson’s team all season long and was declared champion of Season 14 of The Voice during Tuesday night’s live finale broadcast on NBC.

Not only was Brynn the youngest person in the competition this season, but she also made history by becoming the youngest The Voice finalist ever. (Brynn was only 14-years-old at the time of her Blind Audition).

BC3
Brynn had several solid performances over this week’s two-night finale event, but the poised artist’s catchy original song “Walk My Way” – written by Julia Michaels – probably pushed her over the edge when it came to home viewer voting.

“I am so lucky … I am literally just a cheerleader. Coaching this girl is a joke,” Kelly told Brynn during Monday night’s Top 4 performance show.

“Everything you have seen this girl do was her idea … It’s insane and I’m just so proud of you, not only because you’re the youngest ever to make it this far but because of the fact you are doing what you love and you do it so well and so effortlessly. It’s so captivating and inspiring to watch.”

Kelly will have some bragging rights on the show going forward, as she won her very first season serving as a coach on The Voice.

Puerto Rico is Back in the News …. 🇵🇷😥 Number of Deaths after Hurricane María Totally Miscalculated 😥🇵🇷 …. “!!


~~May 30, 3018~~ 

DEATH TOLL

I knew this the moment Hurricane María’s path was confirmed.

I know my country, it’s geography, its people.

There was no way the ’64’ could be the official count.

I have no proper words to describe how this feels.

My heart and soul ache for my country!

REMEMBER THIS?

By Aaron Blake … May 29

In October 2018, in the course of claiming credit for a successful response, Drumpf decided to favorably compare the official death toll in Puerto Rico, which was then 16, to the death toll after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, which was 1,833.

DRUMPF: We’ve saved a lot of lives. If you look at the – every death is a horror. But if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina, and you look at the tremendous – hundred and hundred and hundreds of people that died. And you look at what happened here with really a storm that was totally overpowering. Nobody’s ever seen anything like this. And what is your death count at this point, 17?

PUERTO RICO GOV. RICARDO ROSSELLÓ: Sixteen, certified.

DRUMPF: Sixteen people, certified – 16 people versus in the thousands. You can be very proud of all of your people, all of our people working together.
“Sixteen versus literally thousands of people.”

The count now, according to Harvard, is 4,645 vs. 1,833.

More than twice as many people died because of Maria than Katrina, per the Harvard study.

Puerto Rico governor welcomes “real number” of Hurricane María deaths after shocking report

A new Harvard University study says the death toll from Hurricane María last year is dramatically larger than reported. The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, estimates more than 4,600 people died on the island.

The official government death toll is just 64.

Researchers randomly knocked on doors and asked if anyone died there. There were more questions – but that’s how it started.

It took six weeks and $50,000 from Harvard to come up with a number that is stunning, reports CBS News’ David Begnaud.

“The negligence that allowed those lives to be lost, needs to be accounted for,” San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz said.

Cruz has blasted Drumpf for being tone deaf and slow to respond. When asked to evaluate her own response she said,

“I know I didn’t get to everyone. We did the best we could, but that wasn’t’ good enough. That wasn’t good enough.”

Why this story is more than just a shocking number?

For every death that is certified by a government official to be related to Hurricane María, family members are eligible to have the federal government help pay for funeral expenses.

The numbers matter.

Grotesque Spectacle in Jerusalem

The complicit first daughter and her shady husband are partying in Jerusalem while Palestinian people are being slaughtered

The juxtaposition of images of dead and wounded Palestinians and Ivanka Drumpf smiling in Jerusalem like a Zionist Marie Antoinette tell us a lot about America’s relationship to Israel right now

I can’t wrap my mind around this.

There’s no worse blind person than one blind person who doesn’t want to see. 

I can only see misery, self defense, preservation from the Palestinians and total disregard from the state of Israel. Israel has military grade weapons, has been encroaching in Palestine land, suffocating the Palestine nations in ways that I can only imagine.

In the meantime, the Drumpfs, the Netanyahus, the powerful, hawkish Jews and Zionist evangelicals take advantage of the lack of morals, values, policies and strategy of the

Fool on the Hill“.

Opinion Columnist
May 14, 2018
On Monday, May 14, Ivanka Drumpf, Jared Kushner and other leading lights of the Trumpist right gathered in Israel to celebrate the relocation of the American Embassy to Jerusalem, a gesture widely seen as a slap in the face to Palestinians who envision East Jerusalem as their future capital.

The event was grotesque

It was a consummation of the cynical alliance between hawkish Jews and Zionist evangelicals who believe that the return of Jews to Israel will usher in the apocalypse and the return of Christ, after which Jews who don’t convert will burn forever.

This spectacle, geared toward Drumpf’s Christian American base, coincided with a massacre about 40 miles away. Since March 30, there have been mass protests at the fence separating Gaza and Israel.

Gazans, facing an escalating humanitarian crisis due in large part to an Israeli blockade, are demanding the right to return to homes in Israel that their families were forced from at Israel’s founding.

TALK ABOUT DAVID AND GOLIATH

The demonstrators have been mostly but not entirely peaceful; Gazans have thrown rocks at Israeli soldiers and tried to fly flaming kites into Israel.

The Israeli military has responded with live gunfire as well as rubber bullets and tear gas. In clashes on Monday, at least 58 Palestinians were killed and thousands wounded, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

‘Slavery in America’ …. “🤨 Didn’t End after the Civil War …. A New Form of Enslavement …. Still Permeates the American Psyche 🤨 …. “!!


Slaves

SLAVERY ISN’T A CHOICE

It could never be!

Recently an American in the music sphere stated that ‘slavery is a choice’.

Interesting to note, he’s an African American himself.

The current political, social and cultural climate in America is such that it lends itself to this type of thinking. The mask is off. Racism, white supremacy, dominance, distortion of facts, ignorance of history or plain shameless self-serving.

You pick the reason!

I find it so difficult to wrap my mind around this type of thinking. I can’t fathom how this happens.

BLine

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years … for 400 years?

That sounds like a choice. You were there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all.

It’s like we’re mentally imprisoned.”

SlaveHands

Slavery might have ended on paper after the Civil War, but many white landowners did everything they could to exploit newly freed slaves well into the 20th century.

Thousands of black laborers across the South were forced to work against their will as late as the 1960s – a new form of enslavement that went on in the shadows of rural America.
