Bianca Ryan, 11, wins America’s Got Talent

An 11-year-old has won America’s Got Talent, taking the $1 million prize. Bianca was easily the favorite, and Piers Morgan noted this Wednesday, telling her, “I think you’re going to win the competition,” and David Hasselhoff echoed that, calling her “the best in this competition.”

When Regis Philbin announced her victory, Bianca, who sings like someone three times her age, “couldn’t believe what she had heard,” according to E! Online. He asked her, “You all right? Bianca, how do you feel darling? You okay?” She replied, “Oh my god, I don’t even know!”

That’s very sweet, but still, for a talent show, isn’t it just a little bit disappointing that a singer won? We already have American Idol, although Bianca won’t qualify for that for a few more years. Still, give the million to the guy who can balance a dishwasher on his eyeball. That’s talent.
