Tim Poe, the contestant who sparked controversy on America’s Got Talent after his combat injury claims were proven false, has been booted from the show.
And his elimination has nothing to do with the controversy he was caught up in. It was because the judges were not impressed with his version of George Strait’s “The Chair.” And how do we know the controversy wasn’t the reason he was booted? Because Tuesday night’s episode that resulted in Poe’s elimination was filmed before people starting questioning his story after his initial audition episode aired.
Tim Poe wowed the audience on an episode that aired early this month, after he told viewers he was injured in Afghanistan and that the injury left him with a stutter – one that doesn’t show up in his singing. The audience gave him a standing ovation after singing a very mediocre version of Garth Brooks’ “If Tomorrow Never Comes. ”
After that airing, his claims were questioned and he later confessed to lying about receiving medals and how his injury occurred.
Are you glad to see Tim out of the contest?
