Jewish Justin Bieber sent home

Edon Pinchot, the “Jewish Justin Bieber,” was eliminated from “America’s Got Talent” last week in the semifinals. Despite not making it all the way, the 13-year-old kippah-wearing singer and pianist from Skokie, Ill., had a successful run, and frequently received high compliments from the show’s three judges — Howie Mandel, Howard Stern and Sharon Osbourne, all Jewish. Mandel even claimed that Edon was “the best singer of the competition”; that came a few weeks after telling him “Jew are terrific!” Pinchot now will return to the Ida Crown Jewish Academy in Chicago and real life. — jta
