America's Got Talent season 2 winner and now Vegas headliner Terry Fator is set to make the show and stage that started it all. The ventriloquist known also as The Human Jukebox will bring two of his most popular puppets, Maynard Thompkins and Duggie, on the upcoming Wednesday episode of America's Got Talent.
Fator, 44, is set to do a little magic act and appear in two places at once: onstage at The Mirage hotel where he headlines and moments later at the America's Got Talent stage. The return, marked with performances of Aaron Neville's Don't Know Much and Sweet Home Alabama, is pre-recorded in Los Angeles.
After winning the sophomore season of the hit NBC talent show, Terry Fator and His Cast of Thousands, made its debut on the Strip in March of this year.
"Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would win that show," Fator previously said of his AGT
win. "Essentially I auditioned because the guy that was the ventriloquist the first season got on The Late Show with David Letterman. So I figured I'd do three episodes like he did and end up on 'David Letterman.'"
Part of his wide repertoire of impersonations during Fator's stint on America's Got Talent
included Etta James, Kermit the Frog, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Garth Brooks, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, and James Taylor.
