She got amazingly far -- a huge accomplishment.
I feel whenever someone i know participates in something like this is, the real accomplishment is simply putting yourself out there and taking a chance.  Not an easy thing to do. Surely that's a real victory.
Bravo to her.

Well, it's over at last and she didn't make it through. :( It was a pretty tense finale, they were the last to find out their verdict, and it was chosen by the judges. The way they structure the show is just so stressful... Anyway, she got really far and did great, I'm very proud of her. Thanks once again to all of you who watched, voted, and read about this little moment in my life. :)

Sorry to see her not make it through :(  The last couple of years have seen some unique talents make it through... and I thought hers should have been among that number.

Thanks guys. I'm hopeful that she's able to create some kind of production company out of this and take the show on the road. Who knows. I'll let you know if that happens and you can all go see it in person. :)

Sorry to hear that :-(
But well done to her, and I hope she continues down that road :-*

I thought you guys might want to know that Abbey has her first paying, independent performance of Aerial Animation coming up mid-December in Dubai! So it all paid off. It's a very exciting moment. :)

Thanks everyone for all your support!

^Dubai? Awesome! I wish her all success. (I won't say "luck" because I believe we make our own luck. And from what I saw previously, luck has nothing to do with her performances.) :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

I know, crazy place to start, right? I'm fascinated that someone in Dubai saw her and then decided they wanted to book this act from half-way around the world. Awesome. :)

Awesome news!  It's always great to hear that even in not winning, the shows raise the profile of the performers!  Great job- on the show, and on using that platform!
