Tonight on America’s Got Talent we had a lot of acts – there were fantastic performances, and then of course Sethward. However, the show ended with Jimmie Herrod, one of the best singers we’ve seen over the season. He was also Sofia Vergara’s Golden Buzzer act!
Here’s the real question: Would he play a song Simon Cowell liked more this time around? He won him over at the auditions, but it would be even more fun if he was in favor here from the start.
For his performance tonight, Jimmie took on another classic in “Pure Imagination,” a song many people know from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. There has always been something magical about this song and it’s hard to place what it is exactly. Perhaps, ironically, it’s that imagination. Jimmie changed the arrangement so that it didn’t sound like a straight cover; he also hit some great notes all around. He has arguably the widest reach of all the singers in the competition!
We also appreciate the way his performance was staged – he could have been surrounded by all kinds of brilliant colors and beautiful effects, but the song title says it all. He was accompanied by nothing but a bare tree, and that’s something that we can interpret it in almost any way we want. An excellent ending to the show.
Whether Jimmie makes the next round or not, we’d say that’s a given. Singers traditionally do well over the course of this season! Add to that the fact that he has closed the show and it is almost certain that he will continue. The bigger question to ask here is whether he will make it to the final or even stand a chance of winning. It feels like a pretty open race now!
