'America's Got Talent' Top 10: Prince Poppycock is a Yankee Doodle Dandy

Posted on

Patriotism was alive and well on America’s Got Talent last night. I guess when America is deciding your fate, it can’t hurt to pay a little respect to our founding fathers. Prince Poppycock’s medley of songs sort of felt like a failed audition from the bicentennial (it even incorporated his own mini U.S. Capitol), but I still found myself rewinding his performance and watching it again. He’s unlike anyone else in the competition — I’m not sure if that’s reason enough to win, but it’s certainly reason enough to watch. Check him out below.

Fighting Gravity also paid tribute to a great moment in American History: The first moon landing. I’ll echo what Howie said: How do they come up with this stuff? Especially considering they’re a bunch of fraternity brothers from Virginia Tech (I was nowhere near as ambitious in college).

Who impressed you the most last night, PopWatchers? Is Prince Poppycock more of a talent or merely a spectacle? Did Fighting Gravity draw you in as much as they did with their initial performance? Tonight the Top 4 will decided by voters only; who are you voting for to go all the way?
