Talent and humour and humility
I shouted myself a night in front of the telly last night.
It was reality television heaven – and I (channel) surfed up a STORM.
The Block, Masterchef and Australia’s Got Talent were all demanding my attention. My poor hubs had head-spin with riding the crests of those ad breaks… I have decided to share a couple of clips from Australia’s Got Talent – for those who missed it (or live in another part of the world!). I have to say, this year the talent is AMAZING. And I have selected my two favourite acts to share here (the others are all on the website link at the top of this par)…
AKA retired farmer Rod Gregory. (Warning: his comedy is naughty but very funny – watch at your own discretion Mum!)
This guy epitomises the oft-irreverent wit of bush characters and I start laughing even before he utters “Viagra” (which he inevitably does each performance!). It probably helps if you see his earlier skits to explain his ‘turtle’ references…
And the amazing Jack Vidgen – 16 years old and an absolute star-in-waiting. He had sung covers of some amazing, enormous songs in the lead up to the final – and then announced he would sing his own song. I think plenty of people thought he would fall on his face…
Yeah. Amazing, right? I think this kid is super-talented, but (almost more importantly in Oz) he seems very grounded and humble and (hopefully) well-prepared for the tsunami of fame that is headed his way.
So who is your favourite AGT finalist?
