    First two previous winners are a joke.

    Michael Grimm is playing some unknown Vegas hotel for five buc tickets. He has less then 10,000 twitter followers! (https://twitter.com/michael_grimm/status/341833138630180864)

    Ditto for Landau Eugene Murphy playing no name fairs and less then 10,000 twitter followers. https://twitter.com/landaueugenejr/status/342093151621758977)


    The kicker million dollar act is really an 40 year annuity 25 grand per or aprox 300,000 lump sum before taxes. http://www.forbes.com/sites/carriec...-talent-winner-is-not-an-instant-millionaire/

    No more bullshit.

    "In reality, Murphy, whose impressive singing voice resembles that of Frank Sinatra, can expect an annual payout of only $25,000—before taxes."

    Ouch

    These shows all pick average crap. Look at the sales of all these American Idol winners in past 10 years. They all suck and don't sell a thing.

    I think they don't even offer the lump sum anymore. If they're smart they wouldn't.

    Talent: Ventriloquist, Impressionist, Comedian, Singer
    Terry Fator had almost given up on his career before surprising himself by winning the second season of America’s Got Talent. As a ventriloquist he does over 100 impersonations and uses 16 different puppets. Following the show he signed a headliner deal with The Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

    trying to search for who else did well after the show

    sold 23000 albums.... i think that sucks .

    Born: December 30, 1979. From Waveland, Mississippi.
    Talent: Singer / Songwriter
    Michael was born in Fort Collins, Colorado and raised by his grandparents in Mississippi. He had been performing at Las Vegas casinos for 11 years prior to appearing on AGT. Since winning the show he has opened on tour for Stevie Nicks and released a self-titled album in May of 2022 which peaked at #13 on the Billboard Top 200.

    this was probably the second most successful. i checked the others and either they were # 50 on the billboard top 200 or they didn't even make the top 200.
