My Country’s “Got Talent” until they Don’t

November 8, 2017

There’s America’s Got Talent, Britain’s Got Talent, Africa’s Got Talent, Asia’s Got Talent, Belgium’s Got Talent, Bhutan’s Got Talent, Cambodia’s Got Talent, Croatia’s Got Talent, Czech Republic & Slovakia’s Got Talent, Ecuador’s Got Talent, France’s Got Talent, Georgia’s Got Talent (not the U.S. state), Germany’s Got Talent, Greece’s Got Talent, Iceland’s Got Talent, Got Talent Israel, Italia’s Got Talent, Mongolia’s Got Talent, Myanmar’s Got Talent, Nepal’s Got Talent, Holland’s Got Talent, Norway’s Got Talent, and …

Anyway, that incomplete list shows how many Got Talents there are or were. Here’s the Wiki post for all the former and current Got Talents.

The last year for China’s Got Talent was Season 5, 2013-14. The next video shows the five winners of China’s Got Talent from the man who had no arms and played the piano with his bare feet to the acrobat that won season 5.

I have two favorites: one from the United States and one from Norway.

Grace VanderWaal won America’s Got Talent in 2016, at age 12. She writes her own songs and performs them. She then signed a record contract with Columbia Records and put out her first short album that reached #9 in the United States. She went on to win a Teen Choice Award and an award from Disney. She is now 13, and started her first concert tour in early October 2017, at Austin’s City Limits Music Festival. Her first full-length album (she wrote all the songs) is scheduled for release on November 3. I already have my own copy and I listen to it every morning when I exercise. I like her work that much.

Angelina Jordan won Norway’s Got Talent when she was age 8, singing classic jazz. At age ten in 2016, she recorded “I Put a Spell on You.”  If you enjoyed that performance, there’s more. You will discover she performs barefoot. Jordan’s first album was scheduled for release this year.
