Robert Hatcher Has Talent
Well, after six months, the national TV audience finally saw Robert Hatcher of Westwood sing an entire song tonight, Whitney Houston's "Run To You." Until now we'd only seen snippets, or clips of him jumping/crying for joy, on "American Idol" last winter (he made it to the Hollywood round) and now on "America's Got Talent" (top 20).
I was impressed, so were the judges. (if you missed tonight's show, it repeats Saturday night on NBC.)
Said Judge Piers Morgan: "I didn't think you stood a chance seeing the lineup for tonight, or the Top 20. I thought you did brilliantly to get this far. But I changed my mind. I changed my mind." Sharon Osbourne said he looked like and sang like a star.
"All you've got to do is come out here and smile. But you back it up with the talent... and it gets right to our heart," said Judge David Hasselhoff.
I say: He should have made it on "American Idol." He's that good. But maybe he can go a lot farther on NBC's summer talent show.
Can he win the $1 million?
