It was by accident that I bumped across this video of a Pakistani performing a dance on the show America’s Got Talent, and while I was composing this for my blog I was delighted to see that Adil Najam remained as usual a step ahead even during his travels to China and wrote a well balanced review on Pakistaniat
Here in Pakistan despite having over 100 channels on practically all cable TV connections, we generally are at the receiving end of delayed re-runs of a few popular shows being aired in the US, and naturally American Idol is the most sought after show. America’s Got Talent was simply not heard of on this side of the world but it seems interesting as the show features talented individuals who can come on the stage to perform anything worthwhile and are not limited to vocal talents as seen on American Idol
I was naturally surprised to see that a Pakistani featured his talents on this show, Kashif Memon a Pakistani who now lives in Skokie, IL for the past six years made it past the auditions phase to finally be featured on the actual show. His english may seem to be a little ‘tooti phuti‘ but naturally we don’t hold that against him as he performed decently well captivating the audience throughout the performance and even leaving an good impression on the judges who genuinely enjoyed the performance and applauded his effort
GO KASHIF GO !!!
