America's Got Talent Holiday Spectacular 2016

Well, we are smack dab into the Christmas season and the Christmas/Holiday specials are ready to entertain you as you bake those cookies and wrap those presents. Because your house is already decorated right?  Right?  Mine has been twinkling since the end of October. Don’t ask. 

Here is what America’s Got Talent has in store for you on Monday night at 8:00 PM: 

“America’s Got Talent will celebrate the holidays with the festive, star-studded America’s Got Talent: Holiday Spectacular, featuring this season’s winner Grace VanderWaal, along with fan favorites The Clairvoyants, Brian Justin Crum and the Olate Dogs, special guests Penn & Teller and suave crooner Sal Valentinetti, who performs a festive “Santa Baby” with Heidi Klum. Additional performances include Season 5 phenom Jackie Evancho, Season 9 winner Mat Franco, The Regurgitator and daredevil Professor Splash, who will perform a seasonally appropriate dive into a pool of eggnog. Nick Cannon hosts with Mel B, Klum, Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel joining in on the fun.”

Now, doesn’t that sound like a barrel of fun?  Seriously?  

However it saddens me to see that former winner, Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. was not included. He certainly was a unique crooner and his affable style and vocal substance was a joy to witness on the AGT stage week after week. I never understood why America’s Got Talent never invited him back to perform. He has enjoyed great success post-AGT. This was the perfect opportunity.  

Color me blue. 

Enjoy the show tonight everyone.
