2013 ITALIA’S GOT TALENT
Also this year the Italian version of “Talent show” is over. As you know, this TV show’s format is similar to “American Idol”, born years ago in England, and based on the discovery of new talent, in any discipline.
In this fourth edition of Italy’s Got Talent, started on January 12, last Saturday during the finals, the sixteen finalists have competed to let viewers choose the winner.
As in the past, the three judges have been Maria De Filippi, Gerry Scotti and Rudy Zerbi and the presenters Simon Annicchiarico and Belén Rodríguez (who participated despite being pregnant).
Among them were some who really deserved to win and I want to mention:
Walter Orfei Malachikhine, a sixteen year old boy belonging to the homonymous circus family, which struck the judges with his acrobatic numbers.
Sara Venerucci and Danilo Decembrini, a pair of artistic skaters, three-time world champions.
Daniele and Alessandro Suez, twelve and fifteen years, two brothers acrobAdomako Danielatic dancers who have conquered all with their skill.
Ripalta Bufo, a good 22-year old soprano from Puglia who has performed a difficult song from “La Traviata”.
Brothers Lo Tumulo (Daniele Sportelli and Elio Angelini), a comedy duo who made us laugh through a macabre comic sense, parodying and joking about death.
The duo Los Hermanos Macana, consisting of two twin brothers (Enrique e Guillermo De Fazi) from Argentina, talented dancers of a “passionate” tango.
Anyway, at televoting among the finalists Adomako Daniel has triumphed, a 21 year old native of Ghana, who has competed in a lyrical piece, a version of “At Last” by Etta James, giving a display of all the nuances of his particular voice. He is assigned the expected prize of € 100,000. Daniel had already tried his luck at the X-Factor show, a few years ago, but was rejected.
An important victory for the 21 year old guy from Brescia, who has always had to struggle, even with his father, to show his talent and desire to succeed. He impressed the audience by his celestial voice but by humility and kindness arising from a slight effeminacy.
