Daniel Emmett Finale
Daniel talks about how his entire journey has been a FIGHT. And that’s why the show keeps advancing you. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE NARRATIVE. And you’re second in the lineup. They’re done with you Daniel. This time he’s performing a pop song–Pink’s “Perfect” in Italian. He makes sure to his a big long note. Not really into Pink sung opera style. Pop opera just isn’t my jam. Mel is glad he brought back to his opera style. She wasn’t sure whether it was Italian or Spanish. Sheesh. Heidi compliments him for being a fighter. “You’ve been one of my favorites.” Simon says, “You needed that performance for yourself.” Simon basically says you needed to end this thing on a high note. He disses his jacket. “You have fought, and deserve to be here,” says Howie, but then adds that it’s a shame he had to follow Brian. Tara suggests he plead his case to America via song.Which he does “You brought me back thrreeee tiiiiiimes…” And this is where it ends.
Daniel remembers how Simon made him sing another song song during his audition. Then he was a Judge Cut wildcard. THEN he was a Dunkin Save. He’s a fighter damn it! If he goes home this week DRAMATIC PAUSE He’ll know he did everything he could. He performs “Somewhere” from the Broadway musical West Side Story. It’s nice, but nothing spectacular.Such an emotional song. When it’s sung well, I get goosebumps. I wasn’t feeling that rendition. Heidi is on her feet. Simon said only the last 20 seconds were magic. He respects the way he fights. Mel wishes he would have sung something operatic. “The performance wasn’t up to par for me,” she says.Heidi loved it. “For me, this was the best performance of the night.” Howie calls it “musical theater” like it’s a bad thing. “I didn’t love it.”
Daniel was eliminated at the judges cut, but brought back as a wild card. OH GOOD GOD. He sings the “asteroid song” (Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith) opera style IN ITALIAN. Just the thing I always wanted! NOT. Ugh. I really hate pop opera. He hits a couple of high notes and a massive key change. Probably smart to sing a tune folks are familiar with. “You really are one of the best strongest singers we have,” says Heidi. Daniel is so grateful to be back, he’s crying. Simon takes credit for bringing back him back as a WC. Of course. “That is what I call a moment,” he says. “It was so wonderful and different,” says Howie. Mel calls the key change, “everything.”
Daniel Emmet Sings “Passera” that Simon Cowell Asks for Him to sing America's Got Talent 2018 AGT
Opera Singer – He’s the dude who sang an original song for his audition. Simon stopped him and had him rehearse an Il Dive tune. He promises Simon he’s been careful about song choice. He picks a “classic” this time. He’s a solid pop opera singer. The judges minus Simon give him a standing ovation. Mel calls his singing “out of this world.” Heidi thinks he’s good looking, as well as a talented singer. Simon says, “I think you’ve worked this out.”
The Rochester, NY native looks to impress the judges with his opera skills. All seems well, until Simon Cowell challenges the singer to learn and perform a song he's never heard in 1 hour. Watch what happens!
