Did you see that the new Bachelor is the Jason guy from last season's Deana competition?
And what's more sad is that I WILL WATCH IT.
I'm tellin you, it's official: A N Y O N E can get their own reality show. Look at "The City" and "Bromance" on MTV aka Laguna Beach TV
: This guy shoulda won based on talent alone. Too bad he had no personality.
: America's Got Talent' star tickles the ivories here
: By TOM ALESIA
: "America's Got Talent" runner-up and Sturgeon Bay native Eli Mattson closed 2008 by performing three straight nights at Madison's intimate Ivory Room Piano Bar, where his singing and playing sent the packed crowd into a frenzy.
: Mattson, performing as a personal favor to the Ivory Room's owners, played the 80-person capacity club, 116 W. Mifflin St., around the corner from Overture Hall.
: How much did the popular NBC summertime show do for Mattson's career? Fans came to Madison from several states and lined up two hours before the club opened to see him. Tickets cost $30 each to the performance, which served as Mattson's last headline appearances before heading to Los Angeles to make an album for Epic Records.
: Mattson, who has lived in Chicago for the last three years, lost in the TV show's final voting by less than one-half percent to tenor Neal E. Boyd. Go to YouTube and use the search words "Eli Mattson" and "Madison" to see various songs from Mattson's Ivory Room gigs.
