Canada’s Got Talent, episode 18: who is Dina Pugliese’s bespoke microphone designer?
In this episode of Canada’s Got Talent, mostly everything goes as we expect it to, with a few minute differences: host Dina Pugliese has yet another sparkly microphone, only this time it’s black (Seriously, what is the microphone budget on this program?); the celebrity of the week isn’t even in the audience (How I Met Your Mother’s Cobie Smulders pre-recorded a congratulations to the winners); and judge Stephan Moccio performs a song off his new album “Elements” (the instrumental “October”, with a staggeringly large orchestra). The voting, however, goes the way we imagined it would.
First up on the chopping block is brother and sister dance team Jive, hoop spinner Eric Saintonge and clog dancers Sagkeeng’s Finest. Much like we predicted on Monday, the boys from Sagkeeng advance to the finals with the most votes from Canada. Following Moccio’s musical interlude (which, considering his love of showmanship, seems a little dull without a vocalist) and a Photoshopped picture of him as a baby with a scarf (never let it be said the producers of CGT aren’t in on the joke), the second round of contestants is up. As soon as Silvia Ricciotto, Angela and Rally and KRNFX are on stage for the next round of judging, Ricciotto is quickly given the boot. The judges debate over Rally’s cuteness and KRNFX’s talent, but they ultimately decide in favour of talent. Duh.
