Singing alongside a talking dog and nude glittery dancers, Edon Pinchot did it again. Performing to a standing ovation, the ‘Jewish Justin Bieber’ stole the show in the semifinal round of America’s Got Talent.
After the clapping (and shrieking girls) had died down, Judge Howie Mandel proclaimed Pinchot “the best singer of the competition” with a performance that was both “amazing” and “beautiful.”
Sharon Osbourne gushed as well. “I thought the song choice was spot on. You put in everything. It was perfect.”
Even Howard Stern, whose excessively ornery demeanor draws parallels to American Idol’s Simon Cowell, had something nice to say. “I imagine a lot of 13-year old girls are going to be voting for you,” he commented, before quickly adding in that he personally found himself to be “a little bit bored.” The comment was greeted by a theater full of booing.
