Simon Cowell is gathering a handful of fan-favorite acts from America’s Got Talent to appear on a special holiday show (Monday, December 19, 8pm, NBC). Some of the acts came close to winning including singers Brian Justin Crum and Sal Valentinetti. And some of the acts are returning winners including “the next Taylor Swift” Grace VanderWaal (2016) and the dog trick act Olate Dogs, AGT winner of Season 7 (2012).
The father-and-son trainers behind Olate Dogs, Richard and Nicholas Olate, continue to tour with their dogs but Nicholas has been adding his own artistic touch (his live music) to the act. The 20-year-old just released his debut solo album Think Big which includes the song “Roll Over Like A Dog.” He describes his sound as “a cross of Justin Timberlake and Ed Sheeran.”
