‘America’s Got Talent’: Andrew De Leon Is The Operatic Marilyn Manson

Tue, June 5, 2012 11:54pm EDT by 28 Comments

Have you ever wondered what Marilyn would sound like as an opera singer? ‘AGT’ has your answer.

The June 5 episode of America’s Got Talent brought the team back to Austin, and boy were they in for quite a surprise! There was the usual artistic light show acts and guitar-toting singers, but none of those were the cream of the crop. Andrew De Leon — who is clearly inspired by Marilyn Manson — was, perhaps, the biggest surprise yet of the season. But that’s not all! With the assistance of a pole-dancing Nick Cannon, the panel uncovered several rare gems that should do well in this competition.

Let’s break down the top five acts of the night, shall we?

5. Aurora Light Painters, 38-46

Set to “Fireflies” by Owl City, they bathed the stage in several creative images of a mermaid, spaceship and more by using several different flashlights. It was like a real life Lite-Brite. (Remember that as a kid?) I wouldn’t say this was an “act,” but it was pretty impressive. “It’s a very unusual art form,” Sharon Osbourne commented.

4. Doppelganger Circus Sideshow

The pink-haired lip-pierced girl — after being blindfolded and stuffed like a roasted pig — sat in a chair while her creepy counterpart pulled out a chainsaw. (Oh no!). With an apple clenched in her teeth, she sat there as he carved the letter ‘H’ in the apple. This was perhaps one of the most cringe-worthy acts yet! Plus, she suffered from lockjaw. That’s never a good combo.

3. Eric & Olivia, 20 – College Students, Musicians

She sang. He played the guitar. They performed “Moves Like Jagger” by Maroon 5, and she had such a lovely tone to her voice. Quirky and cool. “You guys just broke through,” Howard Stern told them. He complimented the arrangement and her vocals.

(Note: They are 50 percent “WGWG,” white guy with guitar.)

2. Eric Dittleman – Mindreader

Are you kidding me? He handed the panel paper, pens, and instructed them to draw something “big and bold.” Eric then proceeded to cover his eyes with black duct tape. (What was that?) Nick then collected the drawings and held them over Eric’s head. Without fail, Eric guessed every single drawing: Howie drew an ear, Howard drew himself, and Sharon drew a pair of glasses. (How did he do that?)

1. Andrew De Leon, 19

He was such a breath of fresh air. Despite his Marilyn Manson-like attire, he proved that he has the talent to go far. Once he took the stage in all black and opened his mouth, I was awestruck. He had a lovely operatic voice. While I wasn’t completely blown away, there’s definitely some talent there. Can you believe this was his first time performing for anyone?!?!

In case you missed it, check out Andrew’s jaw-dropping audition. You just might cry.

This is to Americas Got Talent Judges: You made a terrible mistake in not accepting or giving Andrew Deleon a second chance to pick up that note. His God given talent . was the most beautiful voice I have ever heard. It brought me to tears. You call yourselves judges, but he deserved a second chance. I am sure America agrees with me. You gave second chances to rediculous acts just to be funny and yet you let this magnificient gem with a voice from heaven go back home. America and I would appreciate a second chance for Andrew Deleon and call him to New. York..

I agree. I thought the show was called America’s got TALENT. Not stubidity. Shame on you judges to prefer these horrible acts and send Andrew home. I will not watch the show anymore.

He has talent, to be sure, and I think the judges really should have given him a second chance. But to tell him that a god gave him that talent is an insult to how hard he worked alone to sing. He sings well because HE worked at it, not a deity, and he deserves all that credit.

I say BS!!! AMG contestants are starting to make up stories for the Bleeding Hearts. You can’t exspect us to believe nobody has ever heard him sing. The parents must be deaf. It take some training or at least practice to sing that type of song. Where did that happen at? The middle of Syberia, thats where the Russians send there OUTCAST. De Leon and Poe should be eliminated for BS.

Thanks , I have just been looking for info about this topic for a long time and yours is the greatest I’ve found out till now. But, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you certain in regards to the supply?|What i don’t realize is in reality how you’re no longer actually a lot more well-appreciated than you may be right now. You are very intelligent.

Send him straight to Hollywood, nah forget Hollywood, New York. Maybe Andrew and Jackie Evanco will perform on Duets. I am not a big fan of opera but I may check some out from my local library.
