Murray Sawchuck Delivers on "America's Got Talent"

By August 5, 2010

Follow me on:

After producing a car in the last set, what could possibly be left?

But in the latest round, Murray Sawchuck stunned the audience and judging panel with an amazing production and teleportation (I don't want to ruin the surprise if you haven't yet seen it). In addition, Murray effectively personalized the effect for the judging panel.

Murray seemingly did everything right. He successfully managed to ramp-up the magic and impact as he rose through the eliminations - something that earlier magicians haven't been able to do. The magicians in past seasons have effectively blown away the judges in the early rounds but in later rounds, were unable to follow with material that could exceed or even match their earlier presentations.

Whatever happens with the voting, Murray Sawchuck can be proud of what he has accomplished. You can watch the video here.

Murray has played it smart and is restoring my faith in the potential of AGT to put someone in the finals that is a real variety act. The only act who has even come close to being a variety winner (that is to say not strictly singing) was Terry Fator who won a couple of years ago. Yes, he is a great variety entertainer but at heart as a wonderful singer who has incorporated impressions and ventriloquism into his act.

Go Murray!

His cruelty to the tiger in his act is appalling. I contacted American Humane and NBC asking them to stop him from
using the poor animal who was obviously stressed, over-heated and lacking oxygen in that tiny enclosure on the stage of AGT last week. Felines don’t pant like dogs unless they are gasping for air, overheated and stressed. The man has no business keeping or handling animals.
