'America's Got Talent': At last, a great audition...from Gabourey Sidibe's mom!

Posted on

Last night’s America’s Got Talent continued in the mixed-bag trend, with auditions from the straight-up lame (sorry, lute dude) to the honest-to-god fantastic, like Alice Tan Ridley, mother of Precious star Gabourey Sidibe, who completely killed on “At Last.” It was the best audition of the night, but is that really saying much? (Watch Ridley’s audition after the jump.)

The only other solid performances last night were from a yo-yo whiz and the Gob Bluthiest magician ever. I was a little bummed that the accordion orchestra didn’t make it, because at least they seemed in on the joke…

So no one topped Alice last night, which raises the question: Is anyone going to top this this season?

Who’s your early favorite, PopWatchers?
