For weeks, Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne all have been gushing about harpist and architect William Close, saying that he’s sure to be the America’s Got Talent victor this year. But it looks like Howard might be revising his predictions a bit. And that’s not a good thing for William Close, because Howard’s predictions have been surprisingly accurate thus far.
Howard Stern loves to toot his own horn as “America’s judge” on hit reality show America’s Got Talent. Every week, he gives a long-winded rant about who he thinks will continue on in the competition. Then, once filming is over, he rehashes those predictions during interviews and on his radio show.
Naturally, it wasn’t too difficult to get Howard to talk about the finals and who he thinks has the best shot at winning a million dollars. And his new prediction might surprise you, because, for the first time, it doesn’t put harpist William Close on top! “I always thought that William Close will win, but now I think Tom Cotter will win. Him or Olate Dogs. But if blows it out of the joint, he could win it.”
Actually, all three of Howard’s favorites are right on the money. Not only are Tom Cotter, Olate Dogs and William Close all amazingly talented, they also are lucky enough to have incredibly dedicated fan bases. There’s little doubt that these three acts will be wonderful as usual this week, but we’ll just have to wait to see if their fans come through for them!
Who are you planning on voting for this week? Or are you going to wait to see everyone perform in the finals before you make a decision? Share your plans below in the comments section!
