My wife made me come watch this last night, and it made me think of Joe Hempel (in a very good way). Kind of the American "Susan Boyle" moment (The lady from "Britan's Got Talent" if you've been living under a rock...). Pretty cool moment for an unemployed "chicken catcher" from Kentucky...

Thx Doc! I just missed it last night. Personally for me, I find the show is fixed. They scan the audience before the performance(they are all shaking their heads, etc) next they are in trance. Look at Susan Boyle the first one. But its entertaining.

As soon as I heard him strum the first chord I new he was going to Vegas!! I also saw it last night and I felt so happy for the guy. Great job! But, I often wonder too how real the show gets. :confused:

I think the judges knew beforehand that this guy was really good. But because of his humble appeance and background they knew they could set the audience up for a huge shocker. This guy was great. Anyone want to post a lesson on the song he played (If Tomorrow Never Comes) ?
