After only finishing in third place during the 2016 edition of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, former Philadelphia Eagles long snapper Jon Dorenbos now has a chance to win this year’s America’s Got Talent: The Champions. Dorenbos advanced to the next week’s season finale as a wild card thanks to this fantastic performance:
What did you think? @AGT #AGTChampions this was such a fun act to perform! pic.twitter.com/sBiQvA9YZJ— Jon Dorenbos (@JonDorenbos) February 12, 2019
Dorenbos is just a really good entertainer. He’s incredibly charismatic and his tricks get you to a point where you think it’s over but then he takes it to another level and makes it even more impressive.
It’s also really cool to hear Dorenbos is going to be a father. Just think, if the Eagles never trade Dorenbos to the Saints and his aortic aneurysm wasn’t discovered when it was, maybe he’s not with us here today.
Thankfully, Dorenbos is alive and well and doing what he loves to do. It’d be great to see Dorenbos crowned as the season’s winner when the finale airs next week on February 18.
