Blue came in third place during Season 16. When judge Howie Mandel asked him why he wanted to return for All-Stars, Blue replied, “I wanted to come back to the scene of the crime, because I was robbed.”
He went on to perform a comedy set in which he shared his funny thoughts on being a parent. As he joked, “Does anybody else think it’s weird that you can accidentally make a person? I can’t even on purpose make a bird house, but I’ve accidentally made two people.”
Blue also joked about how people reacted to him as a father with cerebral palsy. They would tell him, “Hey, didn’t anybody tell you not to shake a baby?” He would respond, “Well, I’m just holding him.”
