Dog makes finals of “America’s Got Talent”

Visit msnbc.com for Breaking News, World News, and News about the Economy

“America’s Got Talent” is the grammatically incorrect name of an NBC television program in which three people who, as far as I know, have never displayed any of their own, judge whether other humans have talent.

This season, though, another species somehow sneaked in, or is it snuck?

A dog named Rory, whose Frisbee skills are indeed stunning, is one of five contestants who have made it to the semi-finals. Rory beat out singer and piano player Charles DeWayne for the final position.

Before the final vote judge Piers Morgan — a former tabloid editor who serves as the token British snot on the panel — said if the dog was chosen over DeWayne, it would be “the biggest scandal” in the history of the show.

Judges David Hasselhoff and Sharon Osbourne, however, called Rory’s performance “brilliant.”

as much as I thought the dog was a great act for once a think piers was spot on because that guy charles was just raw talent and how he didnt get through is down to sharon but i knew she would have voted the dog through because which she has never hidden, she loves dogs and a think thats why charles went out

Tony and Rory’s act was the best that I’ve ever seen on America’s got talent! They finally got it right!! Unbelievable for a dog to do that on a slippery stage and for the owner to be able to time the throws and tricks accurately taking that into consideration, I noticed that Tony was the Skyhoundz World Champion in 2008.. unbelievable!
