Landau Channels the Rat Pack for His 'America's Got Talent' Audition (VIDEO)

Landau, 'America's Got Talent'Susan Boyle taught us to never judge a book by it's cover. And while we'd say Landau doesn't have quite as unexpected a look on 'America's Got Talent' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC), he still managed to surprise us.

A guy in a laid back casual dress style rocking dredlocks might be expected to belt out reggae, light rock or even smooth jazz, but we're pretty sure nobody was expecting a flawless Rat Pack big band sound to come out of him.

Even more impressively, Landau admitted he'd never before auditioned for anything. And yet his vocal control and poise on stage was so flawless it was as if he'd been singing professional his whole life.

You're the kind of reason that we like doing the show," Piers Morgan told him. "Because you come out of nowhere. You've never auditioned before in your life and you have a natural God-given talent."

Why are so many people fixed on appearance? This man has a great voice, not perfect, but great. The teeth certainly don't look all that terrible and his dredlocks are just his hair style. Why change those minor things, or knck him for them. This is a TALENT show, not a beauty contest. Get a life people!

So fix the gaps in his teeth because diastemas (thats what they are called) are deformities! ther are abnormalities. WHY so many people think they are attractive with a gaping smile is crazy. They look terrible. Also, the dreads hafta go. Otherwise, this guys performance was amazing and I wish him the best.
