However, I am rooting for Forte all the way. Their performances of “The Prayer” and “Caruso” were exceptional and chill inducing.
However, it was their closing number, “Caruso” that enabled us all to see the enormous probability of ongoing success for these three talented singers. Their stage poise and craft were exceptional – the vocal passion and drive they afforded this song was absolutely and unequivocally inspiring. They captured our hearts and souls and never let go – not even after the song was over.
To see my friend, Fernando, in tears at the end of this number tugged at my heart strings. In addition to Josh and Sean, he has worked very hard over the course of his career, against all odds and weathering rejection after rejection. His indomitable spirit and strength came through during Tuesday’s AGT performances as he, along with Josh and Sean, took hold of and commanded the stage with their exquisite harmonies and charismatic presence.
I would like to address judges Howard Stern and Howie Mandel’s despicable attitude against the singers and, particularly Forte.
Tuesday evening should have been a celebration of all Top 6 acts. The fact that you decided to create your personal , misguided agenda and make disrespectful and misleading comments about the singers – and Forte in general – says more about your lack of knowledge and professionalism about the arts in general than of the singers’ contribution to this show.
This is not your competition to win or lose – that belongs to Forte, Cami, Taylor, Jimmy, Kenishi and Collins.
Your comments soured the entire showcase last evening and deflated and disrespected a large portion of your viewing audience. You need to eat a bit of humble pie and issue an apology to the singers and their audience. It was absolutely disgraceful.
If you think singing is so easy, I would like to see the two of you hit the stage and sing “Caruso” – except you would turn it into a comedy act and think that your performance was more brilliant and original than Forte’s .
In case you missed Forte’s performances last evening, I have added the video links below.
Have a look – and let me know what you think!
