Bay State native in 'America's Got Talent' finals
UNDATED (WHDH) -- Eric Dittelman is a Bay State native who's made it to the finals of “America’s Got Talent,” and he'll try to wow the judges Tuesday night.
Here’s how he expects to do it.
When mind-reader and Westborough native, Eric Dittelman, first hit the “America’s Got Talent” stage, he really wanted to knock out the judges.
While Eric was blindfolded, each judge drew a drawing, and Eric was able to correctly guess each one.
“It was better than I could have even expected, and they were blown away. It put me through to Vegas,” Dittelman said.
It was there, in the second round, where Eric correctly guessed the first name of Sharon Osbourne's first crush.
Osbourne later claimed she just made up the name, but Eric wasn't fooled. So how does this former music teacher do it?
“It's got some elements of magic and psychology, and all these different things going on. So when I’m on stage my mind's going a mile a minute,” Dittelman said.
However he does it, Eric made it to the top 48 contestants, and is competing for $1 million. And Tuesday night, the local 26-year-old will do his next trick live on channel 7.
“I think I’m the only one from Massachusetts and the New England area so hopefully, you know they'll put up the votes for the hometown guy,” Dittelman said.
