in the course of human events

Should any of us be surprised that Neal E. Boyd won "America's Got Talent" last night? His audition segment seemed to be lifted, almost shot for shot, from that of the winner of "Britain's Got Talent." Earlier in the summer, I saw a promo for AGT that was practically identical to the clip of Paul Potts that I linked to last year. Because I didn't watch the show often enough to hear him sing anything beside "Nessum Dorma," my opinion is probably slanted. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for Neal and glad that he won, even if his prize is less than you think. I'm just a bit cynical about the similarities between the two operatic amateurs.
