‘America’s Got Talent’ season 11 winner announced

1473940304176Grace VanderWaal on (Left) and The Clairvoyants (Right)

 

[Spoiler alert! The following contains spoilers from season 11 of “America’s Got Talent.”]
Grace VanderWaal is the newest winner of “America’s Got Talent.”
The 12 year-old ukulele sensation narrowly beat mentalist duo The Clairvoyants to snag the show’s $1 million grand prize Wednesday night.
NFL star and magician John Dorenbos placed third.
Grace — a fan favorite who Simon Cowell has dubbed “the next Taylor Swift” — immediately fell into a crouched position and began to openly weep when host Nick Cannon called her name.
“How does it feel?” he asked her. “These are tears of joy, right?”
“Yes, of course,” she replied between sobs.
As part of her prize, Grace will also headline an upcoming concert in Las Vegas.
The tween was one of ten acts who made it all the way to the finale.
The two-hour broadcast included highlights from the show’s 11th season as well as performances by Il Divo, The Silhouettes and rock legend Stevie Nicks.
The Fleetwood Mac icon revealed she is a fan of “Talent’s” 11th champion.
“I have been watching this show from the very beginning,” Nicks said after performing a stirring version of “Landslide.”
“I have to say (Grace) reminds me a lot of me in a lot of ways. We sing very similar. We like to be weird…and we like to be a little different and not like anybody else.”
“Grace is going to the top!”
Earlier in the evening, Grace reprised her audition song, a quirky original tune titled “I Don’t Know My Name.”
Then it came time to reveal the results of America’s vote.
Crooner Sal Valentinetti, contortionist Soffie Dossi, vocal quartet Linkin’ Bridge and teen opera star Laura Bretan were all in the first group to be eliminated.
Other highlights from the evening included Dorenbos and the Clairvoyants each performing stunning illusions with a little help from Paula Abdul.
“America’s Got Talent” will return in May 2017 on NBC.

Justin Bieber Channels Some Coffeehouse Vibes To Cover 2pac And More

The ’90s baby re-works songs from two of the decade’s biggest hitmakers

Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car” is six years older than Justin Bieber — if the song were a kid, it would have graduated kindergarten by the time he was born — but that didn’t stop the singer from attempting a cover of the ’90s classic, along with a surprising rendition of 2pac’s “Thugz Mansion,” for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge.

Bieber donned some torn flannel, picked up an acoustic guitar, and did his best to invoke the smoky, uplifting intimacy of Chapman’s original. He said it was a “part of his childhood,” a song that his mom would play all the time when he was a kid, and after a brief flub at the beginning, he eventually found his key and croons his way through the track. (You gotta feel for him when you see him wince as he finds his footing.)

The low-key mood was well-suited to his cover of “Thugz Mansion.” After the performance, Bieber shared a bit about his relationship to hip-hop — namely, to Kanye West. “I forget how I met him,” he said. “We just clicked and vibed. It was cool.”

Maybe Bieber was flemmy and flummoxed from drinking too much milk before his performance? Even then, Bieber on a bad day still sounds better than the majority of Average Joes belting out “Fast Car” in their respective automobiles on their best day, so he gets a pass on this one.

#Writivism2016 Day 5: The colonies are coming…

nice one..

My Wandering Journey

It’s four o’clock, my regular boda guy is late, I’m tapping my foot impatiently under my desk as my eyes turn back to the code I was troubleshooting. You see I am a writer of software by day and a writer of fiction by night. After one last satisfactory glance, I start to pack up, I don’t want to miss the keynote- but clearly I am going to be late. I don’t like being late, especially when it is not a weekend morning. When he finally gets to the office, he apologizes – traffic he says. Apprehensive at the thought that I am going to be further delayed, traffic means weaving through mildly irritated Ugandans driving at the mercy of the officer in white. When did I get so impatient, I wonder!

I finally get to the museum, geared and ready for Day 5 of Writivism – on the line up: a keynote…

Mapping out critical moments and turning points

Activity: Drawing Out Critical Moments w/ Moment Maps

One activity we have used to help people think about the story they want to share digitally involves an activity we call “moment mapping.”

During the moment mapping process, participants are asked to think about critical moments in their lives, and then to “map out” or creatively represent those moments on paper. Afterwards, everyone presents to the group their map and tells the story of their moments.

We find that this activity is helpful because it gives people a chance to think not only critically about a particular story, but orally, as they think of how they will tell the story, and visually, setting them up to think about how they will aesthetically represent their story in digital form.

Moment Map Tools:

  • sketch pad paper
  • art supplies (pencils, pens, crayons, markers, paints and brushes, construction paper, glue, wire, scissors, magazines [for cutting out images], pipe cleaners, etc.)
  • tape (to hang maps on the wall)

As a way to get people thinking about possible story ideas, we use this exercise to focus in on time periods in their life that became defining moments for them. Usually, the events, people involved, or eventual outcomes from these moments end up being part of a larger story that can be developed and turned into a digital story.

This activity starts off in a group setting, where participants are asked: “What have been critical moments in your life?” Follow up questions to emphasize the critical moment aspect of this exercise can include “What moments in your life helped to define who you are?” or “Which moments in your life do you think have been important in forming who you are?”

Participants are given a few minutes to think and reflect about these moments quietly. It is important to emphasize that this question is open for interpretation in any number of ways, since everybody has unique experiences, and that they have the freedom to think about and answer the question however they see fit.

After the quiet reflection time, each participant is presented with their own piece of sketch pad paper which they will use to create their moment map.

Using the art supply materials, the participants are given 20-30 minutes of time alone to artistically represent those moments in whichever way they see fit. Again, openness and creativity are stressed in this process – they can draw, paste images, or use clay and pipe cleaners to give texture to the story of their critical moments.

Once the creative process is complete, participants are asked to tape their moment maps onto the wall of a large room as a way to create a gallery of maps.

When everyone has completed their map, and all the pieces have been placed on the wall, the group travels from piece to piece to listen to each person tell the story of their critical moments. As members of the group listen to each story, they are encouraged to ask questions of the presenter as a way to draw out and develop the story.
