I'm a competitive reality TV junkie and totally think I can do better than any contestant. Of course that's a bit dillusional. 

With one of the best personal stories in show history, along with one of the smoothest voices, Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. is your 2011 America's Got Talent champion!

The jazz singer surprised many by overcoming the favorites, Team iLuminate, who only finished in third place. Did you see Sharon Osbourne's face when that result was announced?

After weeks of competition, it's officially on, folks! The America's Got Talent finals kicked off last night, with four acts competing for the grand prize. Let's take a look at how each  performed...

We're down to 10 acts on America's Got Talent, 10 performers who are mere days away from fulfilling their dream. Who bombed? Who rose to the occasion? Who ought to advance? The answers await...

Miami All-Stars - Had the disadvantage of going first in a very important week. I didn’t understand the football/cheerleader theme and the dancing was too frantic. The group gets extra points for the big dancing chicken. The whole performance lacked direction and the music transition was executed really sloppy. My Grade: C+

Ouch! Four acts advanced last night on America's Got Talent, but none came from the group of Wild Cards selected the evening before by Howie Mandell. There's always next year, buddy...

Eliminations Part 1 - Shevonne, Yellow Design Stunt Team, West Springfield Dance Team - WSDT made it through. I hope that the team's choreographer doesn't kill them trying to create a more dynamic routine. It made me wonder if WSDT was ranked fourth last week and the judges went with the fifth-ranked Beth Ann Robinson.

Piers Morgan has a heart. Who knew?!? This conclusion was drawn after the America's Got Talent judge selected Kinetic King as a Wild Card last night, one of four picks he made throughout the episode...

The Kinetic King - (Piers' Choice) - After bombing on live television, The Kinetic King blamed everything including fungus. In a smart move, The Kinetic King decided to pull the chord and this time the trick went off without a hitch. The only problem was that the camera shots were horrible. I liked the raising bars, the chain, and how the balloons worked. The trash cans at the end showed that he could play with scale. My Grade: A

There were eliminations on America's Got Talent last night, but no surprises. Find out below who went home and who will perform again...

Eliminations Part 1 - Powerhouse and Gymkana - If I wanted to watch a good Glee-style singing group... I'd watch Glee. Powerhouse wasn't the best group and there were too many voices muffling the routine. Gymkana, on the other hand, had a strong routine and advanced through.

Katie Holmes and Kenny Ortega joined So You Think You Can Dance judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy this week, as the final four took to the stage four times each - and it showed in a few sloppy results.

Marko & Melanie - Disco (Doriana Sanchez) - It's been a long time since there was a disco and I'm happy that Doriana hasn't stopped putting insane lifts in her routines. There was something unsexy about Melanie; she needed to let loose. She was worried about the lifts. There was something awkward when the two dancers went between lifts and placing Melanie down. The high amounts of color and sparkles covered up the mistakes. My Grade: B-
