Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. Brings Dean Martin to the ‘America’s Got Talent’ Stage
It's obvious that Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. is a fan favorite to win 'America's Got Talent' in 2011. During tonight's countdown-to-the-finale episode, the man in dreads had the crowd screaming before he even began singing Dean Martin's classic, 'Ain't That a Kick in the Head.'
Truthfully, Murphy is a clear judge favorite, too. While he's a bit cheesy for our tastes, we can't deny that his Martin number was spot on. As the grandson of the late Reverend Cecil Murphy, the West Virginia native has been performing since before he was able to talk, so it's not terribly surprising that he has perfected his act.
"You are one hell of a class act!" Sharon Osbourne told him, and her fellow 'Talent' judges agreed. Murphy took his minute at the mic to thank the people who got him in front of the cameras in the first place -- his devoted, voting fans. He said, sincerely, "I love everybody out here, thank you so much."
'America's Got Talent' is currently running its all-new finals episodes, with new fan-voted live episodes running on Sept. 6 and 7. Coincidentally, auditions started Tuesday for the 2012 season.
