We watched and waited last week, but people around Southeast Missouri were disappointed.
Here at "America's Voice" (our Neal E. Boyd Web page) we had heard that our man Boyd was to appear on the July 8 episode of NBC's "America's Got Talent," where he made a splash with his first performance back in June.
It wasn't to be.
We watched for an hour, and never did the big tenor from Sikeston, Mo., appear on our screen. Of course, Boyd's going to be in Las Vegas the next time we see him, and last week's show was still surveying the landscape of the numerous tryouts throughout America.
Nor did we see Matthew Piazzi, son of Southeast Missouri State University voice instructor Judith Farris. But we know his appearance is upcoming, too.
So, we're sorry if we led you on, thinking the one guy on the whole show you're actually interested in would be on July 8. I had one angry phone message about the mistake.
Maybe this week we'll actually get to see some of the Las Vegas callbacks. Maybe not.
If anyone out there knows for sure, please give the rest of us a clue.
