‘Aly’ and Edon in pop kulcha spotlight

Gone viral is a video of gymnast Alexandra “Aly” Raisman doing her floor routine to “Hava Nagila.” The 17-year-old Jewish gymnast is reportedly ready for an appearance at the London Olympics and planning to do the same routine there. Check out her routine here.

Meanwhile, in the continuing sage of pianist/singer Edon: Howie Mandel and Howard Stern voted for him in Judge’s Choice elimination round Tuesday night, so the 14-year-old is moving on to the next round of “America’s Got Talent.” We’ll have further details on where and when you can vote for Edon, when his turn comes up.


More Edon

Mazel tov to Edon, who impressed the celebrity judges on “America’s Got Talent” last night. If you missed him, check out what he did here. The fate of this week’s contestants will be announced on tonight’s show, which airs locally 8-9 p.m. on KPNX-TV, Channel 12. Image


Kvelling for Edon

His name is Edon. He’s 12, wears a kippah when he plays piano and sings, and he’s made it to the live rounds of “America’s Got Talent,” the NBC talent competition.

Judge Sharon Osbourne says Edon reminds her of a young Billy Joel.

We figure it’s time to kvell. The “live rounds” begin tonight (the show airs 7:30-10 p.m. on KPNX-TV, Channel 12, in the Phoenix area).

See him perform here.
