The Aftermath

Okay, so first off, THANK YOU!

So many people wrote and tweeted and emailed… all the modern communication channels, to tell me they voted and told others to vote… it was just like being bathed in pure love.  I am so grateful and so amazed!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The other thing is… I’m EXHAUSTED!

That was one stressful week.  I tried to sound cheerful and relaxed in my blog, didn’t want you to feel uncomfortable, or panic or anything.  Didn’t want anyone to call in sick for work, drive out to New York and buy me a smoothie…

But it was like being on HIGH ALERT for seven straight days, culminating in a suspense-filled evaluation of my ability to be on HIGH ALERT. 

The last thing I’ll say before I crash into bed is this:

I had a BLAST.  Being able to do my impressions, to a full house at Radio City, on live television, to hear the validation of the judges, to a standing ovation with my mom in the audience, with my beautiful wife in the audience, KNOWING that YOU and a thousand other friends were out there pulling for me… was just indescribable.  It was worth all the struggle and the sleepless nights, and the bother of being part of a “reality show.”

So, THANK YOU AGAIN, and I’ll be back again soon to tell you more.Image

  1. You’re a class act, Jim!
    And what a great trip – thanks for letting us ride along!
    More please,
    DW

  2. DW’s first sentence was my exact thought. Thanks for taking us on the ride. And AGT did a great bio on you and the family.

  3. I don’t think the judges (or the audience for that matter) has any concept of how difficult it is to rif from a completely foreign suggestion of Ben Franklin, and how you commanded that stage and audience as one guy in a suit – no indoor pyrotechnics, dance troupe, etc.

    Still, many good things will come to you as a result of this.

  4. You were truly amazing! You single-handedly proved that America does indeed still have talent! Thank you for sharing your amazing talent with America. We look forward to seeing more of you very soon!
