Aussie singer Sheldon Riley and outrageous German superstar Hans (aka journo Matt Gilbertson) recently returned to America’s Got Talent as part of the “Fantasy League” series in which the judges ‘mentor’ favourite acts.
Riley appeared as part of Mel B’s team where his backstory extravagantly suggested he never felt ‘validated’ until he appeared on AGT (sorry The Voice, Eurovision) and made a big deal about whether he would / wouldn’t remove his mask -something he’s done many times before, including on Eurovision.
Appearing last night on The Project, Riley admitted producers wanted him to fake any knowledge of knowing Mel B, despite his Runner Up performance on The Masked Singer. Riley has now appeared on more talent shows than well, Jack Vidgen, but hopefully the exposure gets him gigs.
Hans also featured recently as part of Heidi Klum’s team but alas was eliminated. He is performing in Perth at 2024 Fringe World Festival in February, darlings.
