    Landau deserved to win...and he did. Illumination is not a talent act it is an electronic computerized fascination that ANYONE could be taught to wear the costume, be in the dark and move around. Let any one of them try to sing like Landau. Being able to produce something on a computer is not entertainment in the same fashion.
