PASADENA, CALIFORNIA: It's no secret that the opening act and closing act receive maximum attention from the audience on 'America's Got Talent'. While Kristy Sellars kicked off the finale episode with her gravity-defying acrobatic pole-dance, Drake Milligan closed the episode with a repeat performance of his original song '“Sounds Like Something I’d Do", which he performed during his auditions.

While fans were impressed with Kristy, sadly they didn't share the same feeling about Drake's performance. Despite Drake's performance receiving a standing ovation and praises from the judges, fans felt let down by his decision to repeat the same song for the finale. Many fans accused him of not putting in any effort while others began wondering if Drake was being set up to win the talent-hunt show. With Drake getting the prime spot of a closing act and being allowed to perform his audition song that turned out to be a chart-topper, fans couldn't help but speculate about him being primed to win the show

Another fan shared, "Don't get the hype about Drake; his performance was like the average cruise ship act and vocally he's decent, nothing more. #agt." "Drake Milligan performing the same song again in the finale… you’re kidding right? Y’all really about to vote for him? When all the other acts made an effort and put out something fresh and new? He sounds like 25 other people performing in a bar in Nashville. #AGT," expressed a fan. "I get the thought process, but I wish Drake Milligan had performed another original. If you're going to sing the same song twice, make sure the second time is better. Not sure it was. #AGT #AmericasGotTalent," pointed out a fan. "Is drake singing the same song he sang last time or is this song THAT similar? either way that's boring #AGT," echoed a fan.
