Even though America failed to vote Colin Cloud into the Finals of “America’s Got Talent,” the Sherlock Holmes-esque mentalist had nothing but good things to say during his “AGT” exit interview. “Thank you to everyone who’s watched it,” he said shortly after his elimination. “This is an absolute dream come true.” Watch Colin Cloud’s “Americas Got Talent” exit interview above.
“Thank you so much for allowing me to come this far in the competition,” Cloud continued. “It means so much that we’ve come on this journey together. I mean, to now have the recognition of ‘America’s Got Talent,’ to be known for performing this stuff now — the stuff I’m most passionate about in life — is wonderful. I’ve not been home in a month. I’m tired, I’m exhausted, I’m sweating in a tweed jacket, and I think I’m gonna pass out.”
Cloud’s final performance during last Tuesday’s Semifinals 2 episode impressed all four “AGT” judges: Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel. The mentalist had asked his Twitter followers for the names of a celebrity, city and object. He printed these out and had Cowell and Mandel pick out three tweets from the live studio audience, with Klum then choosing the tweet at random. The result was “Ellen Rome Cheese,” which Cloud had predicted via an elaborate video that revealed those three words were present in the judges’ lives throughout the prior week.
The Top 10 finalists for “America’s Got Talent” 2017 are: singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer, singer Angelica Hale, singer-songwriter/ukeleleist Mandy Harvey, singer-songwriter/guitarist Chase Goehring, stand-up comedian Preacher Lawson, light-up dance group Light Balance, dog act Sara and Hero, acrobatic dance group Diavolo, singer Evie Clair and singer Kechi.
