Pan Am stewardesses: prepared for anything!
I wonder what future episodes NBC has already filmed? With this bad press, they CAN'T let the guy go to Vegas. Or, is NBC just riding the publicity wave to see how many of us tune in to see Tim get booted?

The producers of AGT love sob stories. One would think they would check some of these stories before showing the act. I've read they have people traveling around the US looking for freak shows long before the show starts. I'm sure some of the acts auditioned but many are selected by the producers before auditions. I've watched the show since the beginning and the real talent is getting less and less. Seems to me the show is more about the judges and Nick more than the talent. Last year the winner was a mediocre singer at best but he had a better sob story (don't remember his name). Something about wanting to buy a house for his poor grandmother, as his tears flowed. I enjoy real talent where it be singing, dancing, comedian, art, etc. However, wasting time with the judges, Nick, non talent and freaks is starting to get real old. I'll give it one more show and I'm finished.
I'm not the only one who think Kevin Skinner is the worst winner ever though, am I?
For the record this is how I'd rank the winners.
1. Terry Fator
3. Michael Grimm
4. Neal E. Boyd
5. Bianca Ryan
6. Kevin Skinner
Season 5's final four though was my favorite final four of all time.
Regarding Tim: I think there is a big difference between exaggeration and lying. One just embellishes the story and the other is a big ol' fraud.
Tim is a big ol' fraud. Yes, he has a military background....the National Guard but that's seems to be pretty much all that's true, as we know right now....the rest is a lie, plain and simple. He goes too far for me to say he exaggerates.
Shame, shame on him.
I don't know nor want to know about his marriages, children, abusiveness, etc but I know I don't like people who to tell big fat lies to get a sympathy vote.
He sure had me crying in sympathy but even then, I didn't think he was all that great of a singer.....and he does a pretty good job of covering Garth Brooks.
Just like that other guy earlier who did a good cover of Joe Cocker.....couldn't understand why everyone thought he was so talented.
Did the best singer ever win any of these shows? On AGT anyway it's more about the story and "personality".
As a stutterer myself, I notice certain letters or words (and a couple of phrases) will ALWAYS give me hell so I have to take a deep breath and rythym it out (mostly as I think people'd get annoyed with sing-song long term).
But there are certain letters he's stuttering that normally aren't stutter catchers: H is one I caught him stutter that isn't a normal one.
His stutter is way too inconsistent IMHO, so I think there's an exaggeration at the minimum.
I agree though - he's not a good singer and I really do feel the sob story was done in an attempt to get onto the show and hopefully win the show.
The GLARING error is there is NO Purple Heart. He'd received that for an injury in conflict on US or international territory. And I know of at least one Purple Heart winner (a former church member) who DID receive one for an injury that left him permanently deaf.
They're pre-filmed through Vegas - any audition show except the You Tube one is pre-recorded. So, we WILL see him through Vegas if they show him. That said, I have a feeling they may be re-editing the footage to cut out his appearance and may insert (if he were to be selected for live show) a disclaimer that shows he was eliminated for falsefying audition records - or have Nick (bless his heart for the few who won't have heard about this) announce he was disqualifed for "breaking the rules."I wonder what future episodes NBC has already filmed? With this bad press, they CAN'T let the guy go to Vegas. Or, is NBC just riding the publicity wave to see how many of us tune in to see Tim get booted?
