America’s Got Talent 2010 Top 3

America’s Got Talent’s crowned Michael Grimm its fifth-season champion during Wednesday night’s live finale broadcast of the NBC reality competition series.

The 30-year-old musician and singer from Henderson, NV won America’s Got Talent’s grand prize of $1 million and the headline role on this fall’s national show tour based on home viewer votes cast following Tuesday night’s live performance episode which featured performances from the competition’s four remaining acts.

“Is this real?” asked Grimm, who appeared genuinely shocked to hear America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon announce his victory.

Jackie Evancho — a 10-year-old opera singer from Pittsburgh, PA who many had deemed the competition’s frontrunner — finished as America’s Got Talent’s fifth-season runner-up.
“This experience has been amazing, I have loved every single moment that I’ve been doing it and I just really hope that I’ll be able to sing for you guys again,” Evancho said after Grimm’s win was announced.

“You definitely will,” Cannon replied.

Fighting Gravity, a 13-man special-effects performance group from Blacksburg, VA finished in third place.

“This isn’t the end, it’s just the beginning for you, and you will see all the huge opportunities that are out there for you are appearing on this show,”America’s Got Talent judge Sharon Osbourne told the group of Virginia Tech fraternity brothers following their elimination.

“I know you are going to have your own show in Vegas, and if you guys don’t give me front-row seats on the first night that’s it!”

Prior to revealing the results, America’s Got Talent’s finale broadcast featured each of the four acts performing a duet with an established singer. Quale sang with Donna Summer, Fighting Gravity performed with Lionel Richie, Grimm sang with Jewel, and Evancho sang with opera singer Sarah Brightman.

Miss Universe 2010 Winner Miss Mexico Jimena Navarrete

A 22-year-old Mexico woman has won the Miss Universe 2010 pageant after donning a flowing red gown and telling an audience it’s important to teach children family values.

Jimena Navarrete of Guadalajara was first to answer an interview question Monday night and the last of 83 contestants standing in the headline-grabbing pageant on the Las Vegas Strip.

Her one-strap gown flowed behind her like a sheet as she walked. Earlier, she smiled in a violet bikini as she confidently strutted across the stage.

Asked by Olympic gold-medal figure skater Evan Lysacek how she felt about unsupervised Internet use, Navarrete said the Internet is important but parents need to be careful and watch over their children.

“I do believe that Internet is an indispensable, necessary tool for the present time,” she said through an interpreter. “We must be sure to teach them the values that we learned as a family.”

First runner-up was Miss Jamaica Yendi Phillipps, while second runner-up was Miss Australia Jesinta Campbell.

Navarrete is Mexico’s second Miss Universe; Lupita Jones of Mexico won the title in 1991. Navarrete replaces Miss Universe 2009 Stefania Fernandez of Venezuela.

Navarrete’s win thwarted Miss Venezuela Marelisa Gibson from giving the South American country a third consecutive win. Neither Gibson nor Miss USA Rima Fakih made the top 15 finalists.

Navarrete won a package of prizes including an undisclosed salary, a luxury New York apartment with living expenses, a one-year scholarship to the New York Film Academy with housing after her reign, plus jewelry, clothes and shoes fit for a beauty champion.

Campbell won the Miss Congeniality Universe award. Miss Thailand Fonthip Watcharatrakul won Miss Photogenic Universe and a second award for having the best national costume.

We’ve collected some photos of the Miss Universe 2010 Winner Miss Mexico Jimena Navarrete, and made a slideshow and a PowerPoint video, enjoy!

World Cup 2010 Final: Spain Defeats the Netherlands 1-0 to Win First World Cup

Spain have been crowned World Cup champions with a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands in extra time.

This was Spain’s first World Cup Final, but they are reigning European Champions. Their previous best World Cup finish was fourth place in 1950.

Andres Iniesta fired home the winner when he was put through in the area by Cesc Fabregas.

Dutch keeper Maarten Stekelenburg dived to his right and got a hand to the ball he could not keep it out.

The defeat was heartbreaking for the Dutch, who were down to 10 men after John Heitinga was sent off in extra time. It was their third World Cup final loss after 1974 and 1978.
