Six months ago, did Rebecca Black ever think that she would be on the “America’s Got Talent” stage belting out a song that made her a YouTube star? Probably not, but it happened during Wednesday night’s results show.
While it would be easy to sit here and be cynical with Rebecca (mainly because that’s what most people tend to do with the 14-year old), we actually have to say that she did a pretty solid job in her brief time on stage. She turned “Friday” and “My Moment” into a medley, sang both of them fairly well with only a few slip-ups, and most importantly actually showed off some dance moves and a stage presence.
It’s something that was hard to imagine when she first appeared online so many months ago, but Black showed some genuine signs Wednesday night that she could someday be a pretty solid performer. All she needs it the right sort of instruction (including some more vocal lessons) and a solid team of writers around her to craft some hits.
Were you actually surprised by Rebecca on “AGT,” or are you still rolling your eyes that she is famous?
