    I love the way they say the winner of AGT gets a million dollars. The prize, which totals $1,000,000, is payable in a financial annuity over forty years, or the contestant may choose to receive the present cash value of such annuity. So if they take the cash value it could be between 200 and 400 thousand.

    Good questions. If Kechi, Mandy and Evie didn’t have their compelling stories, would their “talent” put them this far? Exactly what is America voting based on? While closing my eyes I find myself attracted and enjoying the singing of Kechi and Evie, am certain I don’t like the nasal whining of Mandy and have no clue what attraction (looks, voice, songs he writes or backstory) of Chase. Darci will probably win this thing, but Light Balance and Diavolo are the bonafide Vegas acts. And we know from past experience you don’t have to win this thing to have success. Sarah will train dogs for Hollywood or something, Preacher will get a TV show and, while she shouldn’t be spending her childhood in Vegas, Angelica is this year’s best singer. Imagine Celine will be fine as well despite being eliminated. And for the record, Colin won the night this week; he’ll be fine, but what a rip-off!

    The prize money is only a small part of this whole thing. Just like a few people already have alluded to… huge contracts usually follow this sort of thing. The money is nice (regardless of amount), it’s what happens after the show is over that makes that winner a big star or not.

    I totally agree with everything you have said. Colin was robbed and had the best act overall. And without the back stories, 4 of the 5 singers would not be there. That is why I like “The Voice” for music talent, based solely on sound. Rooting for Darci or Diavolo now.

    I agree with you all it’s a show no. A life story they must cut all the sad stories and just get on with it.

    What’s wrong with financial annuities ? It’s 40 years of not needing a job to make a living… $25k a year amounts to just around $13 per (work)hour…
