Burton Crane - Audition and Predictions For America's Got Talent 7
Burton Crane looks and acts like one of those joke acts you see every year on America's Got Talent. He is from New York City and auditioned there for Season 7.
And when he said he was a 77-year-old rapper who is the grandfather of rap, then I was sure this was another joke waiting to happen. To my surprise, it was only half a joke. His rapping was terrible, as you might have expected. But what caught me and probably most people by surprise was his song "Whatcha Gonna Do."
By the end of the audition, the whole theater was chanting "Whatca Gonna Do" in unison. This was a very catchy tune, and Burton says he has 100 more where that came from.
Well, I still thinks it's really easy to predict that Burton Crane cannot win. His rapping is so bad it's funny, and that will cause him to lose a lot of votes even from fans who like his lyrics. And it is also pretty doubtful that Burton will have other tunes as catchy as this one. I got a lot of hits on my articles last night on Burton, but this is probably a short-lived thing. He could easily make the voting rounds if the producers want him. But this kind of music comedy act won't last long in a talent contest with as much good talent as AGT.
