America’s Got Talent, and a New Host!

According to the people over at Televisionary, the second season of America’s Got Talent is in for a bit of a shake up. As has been very well publicized, one of the shows hosts – Brandy – has a few legal matters (to say the least) on her plate that will most likely prevent her from fulfilling her show hosting duties. For those that’ve been living under a rock for the last year, Brandy is involved in a fairly heated legal situation stemming from a fatal car accident she was involved in and potentially the cause of last year. Never having been a Brandy fan, ever… I swear, I’m not especially heart broken about the possibility of her leaving the show, especially since the leading lady that may be taking over is none other than failed talk show host and reality TV superstar Sharon Osbourne!

As was reported by Televisionary, “producers of America’s Got Talent will be replacing beleaguered judge Brandy, currently embroiled in legal problems– both criminal and civil–stemming from her involvement in a fatal car crash last year, with British reality TV veteran Sharon Osbourne.”

Sharon Osbourne, long time wife of legendary rock-star Ozzy Osbourne, should have no problem filling Brandy’s tiny shoes as co-host on America’s Got Talent 2. Needless to say, she has more reality TV knowledge and experience than Brandy could ever hope to have (at least until she starts appearing on C-List celebrity shows like Surreal Life). Osbourne has hosted her own talk show, been a judge on the British reality TV series’ X-Factor and Xtra Factor and has, obviously, stared in the hit TV show The Osbournes”.

Though Sharon replacing Brandy on America’s Got Talent 2 has not yet been confirmed or made official, it’s sounding pretty likely and could prove to be a great move for the show and its ratings. I know I’d find her one hell of a lot more interesting to watch than Brandy, so here’s hoping their is truth behind this rumor!

Anyone that has been reading dingoRUE for a while likely knows just how I felt about Bianca Ryan winning America’s Got Talent, though my thoughts on the 12-year-old vocalist were widely unshared. Ryan has since been picked up by Columbia/SYCO Records and is now releasing her debut album today – November 14th.

In an effort to pump up album sales and to get her name back into the media again, Ryan will be making a number of TV appearances.

America’s Got Talent: Bianca Ryan Wins!

Last night was the 2-hour season finale of America’s Got Talent and, unfortunately, proved to be about as entertaining as the rest of the season (not very, that is).

I had thought it would be worth watching and could prove to be entertaining as the final 10 contestants were a pretty good mix, and believe it or not, a few of the groups involved even had talent, The Millers, Realis and At Last, mainly. But, as usual, the winner was someone that, in my opinion, did not deserve to win at all. Given, she does have a very nice voice and is quite talented for her age, the show is called America’s Got Talent, not American Idol! Why does it seem like every show that involving any kind of talent competition always boils down to a consentrated pile of American Idol knocked off crap. I actually had high hopes for America’s Got Talent and I actually enjoyed the first few episodes, but, just like Treasure Hunters, it’s been nothing but down hill since then.

Congrats to the very talented Bianca Ryan for winning, but don’t expect to hear any celebrating over here. I still think The Millers should have, without a doubt, won it all. That kid can sure rock a harmonica!
