‘America’s Got Talent’ Appearance A Snap For Famous Finger-Snapper

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – America’s Got Talent has not only done well in the ratings for NBC, it’s helping professional finger snapper Bobby Badfingers snap up some glory.

The season finale airs tonight (Aug. 16) and while Badfingers didn’t make the finals, he’s considering his appearance victory enough.

In his words, “I get recognized everywhere now. People snap at me. I think it’s the moustache.”

But while Badfingers isn’t up for the $1 million grand prize, his days on the show aren’t over.

He says the producers have an option on his future projects and insiders recently saw him giving finger snapping lessons to show host Regis Philbin.

As he puts it, “I didn’t win but of all the contestants, I have the whole package. I’ve got a book in the works, a CD, even cartoons.”

Badfingers is also convinced that the world is on the verge of a finger snapping revival, thanks to him and Li’l Jon’s rap hit, “Snap Your Fingers.”

He muses: “Someone really needs to combine rap and snap and I’d think they’d have something.”
