“America’s Got Talent” — the ventriloquist wins

Amgottalent_2Somewhere, Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy are smiling. The victor in last year’s finale of “America’s Got Talent” summer reality competish was none other than ventriloquist Terry Fator of Dallas, who beat out another large dude with a goatee, crooner Cas Haley, to claim the $1 million top prize and a hearty back slap from host Jerry Springer.

Truth is, as demonstrated in this clip of Terry and his turtle sidekick Winston doing the Roy Orbison tear-jerker “Crying,” he really is a hell of a voice thrower. “America” tuned into the finale of “America’s Got Talent” to the tune of 13.9 million viewers, reports Variety’s Rick Kissell.
