When they auditioned for “America’s Got Talent” on June 19, Voices of Hope Children’s Choir were not able to convince Howie Mandel to give them a yes vote.

They had wowed the crowd and the other three judges (Simon Cowell, Mel B and Heidi Klum) with their performance of the power anthem “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman.”

This time around, they upped their game and their choir director promised they were “more tight and solid on the vocals.” And indeed they were.  In the video, watch this group of 70 kids from Orange County wow with their harmonies on “How Far I’ll Go” from “Moana” the Oscar-nominated song by  Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton”).

~Live-blogger John Benutty observed~

“The song started with a series of three female solos before erupting into a full-choir harmony at the first chorus. Full disclosure, the song is one of my favorite Disney songs and at the peak of their performance I literally had chills!

Mel felt the performance strongly too because she got emotional, as did Ken who after Heidi and Simon sent in their support hit his golden buzzer and sent the choir straight through to the live shows!

You could tell during the performance that he might do it because he seemed utterly speechless.”

Beep Beep, Yeah!

~Paul McCartney On Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Is TV At Its Best~

I’m a huge Beatles fan!

I love James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke Series.

Put them together and it’s an instant hit … at least in my mind and 21,677,891 view as of today.

It’s a bit long but for Beatles fans it’s not long enough!

Let’s take a trip down “Penny Lane”.

James Corden has set a very high standard with his Carpool Karaoke TV pieces. Only a million or two viewers watch him on CBS’ The Late Late Show when it’s broadcast, but YouTube and other social media sites extend Corden’s reach phenomenally.

A new one showcasing Sir Paul McCartney stands above all others.

In only a few days, it’s been viewed on YouTube more than 14 million+ times – and with very good reason. Not only does it have all the happiness and goofiness you expect Corden to deliver but this McCartney karaoke is also unexpectedly tender, touching and meaningful.

Simon Cowell gives opera singer Daniel Emmet an impossible challenge on ‘America’s Got Talent’

Classical crossover singer Daniel Emmet thought that he was sure to sail through his audition for “America’s Got Talent.”

But as we saw on the June 19 episode of “AGT,” head judge Simon Cowell had something else in mind for this 25-year-old singer, who intended to perform an original song that was a mashup of opera and pop. He had barely begun this tune, which came across as bland and boring, when judge Simon Cowell cut him off and requested that he sing a different song.

When Emmet admitted he had not come prepared with an alternate, Cowell seemed crossed. He dispatched him from the stage and gave him just one hour to learn another song, the Il Divo hit “Passera.”

The visibly nervous neophyte returned in the appointed 60 minutes and proceeded to wow the audience, the panel and even himself with his rendition of this Italian aria.

‘You’re Like a Lion’

~Shy 13-Year-Old Courtney Hadwin Blows America’s Got Talent Judges Away~

M’lord!! I’m not really a Janis Joplin fan but if this young lady is anything like her, she seems to be channeling the well known singer perfectly!

Just take a look at the performance that received Howie’s golden buzzer.

When shy 13-year-old Courtney Hadwin stepped onto the America’s Got Talent stage Tuesday night, June 12, no one saw her performance coming.

After admitting she was “a little bit nervous” as she awkwardly answered Mel B‘s pre-performance questions, Hadwin began belting Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle,” dominating the stage as she fearlessly played to the judges and packed crowd.

Howie Mandel compared the British teen to a music legend before hitting the coveted Golden Buzzer that sends her straight through to the live shows later in the season.

“You are not from this era. You’re from a whole different era. And I’m a huge Janis Joplin fan and there’s a story – if you’ve ever watched the documentary – Clive Davis, he goes to the Monterey Pop Festival and he sees this young girl that nobody’s ever seen before, that nobody knows. It was the first time that Janis Joplin got signed and that changed her life. I’m not Clive Davis, I’m Howie Mandel, and I can’t sign you to a record deal.

The only thing I can do for you, young lady, is give you …”

Mandel then slammed his hand on that buzzer as confetti began to fly and Hadwin burst into tears.

~Golden Buzzer Acts~

When an AGT judge hits the button, an act is sent straight through to the live shows, skipping a judge vote and more rounds of competition.

Here are two amazing acts that won this distinction. 

ZurcarohZurc1

~Austrian Acrobatic Dance Troupe Zurcaroh~

America’s Got Talent host Tyra Banks didn’t waste any time picking a favorite act during the auditions round. After the final performance of the season 13 premiere, she used her one chance to press the sought-after Golden Buzzer.

The group that caught Banks’ attention is Austrian acrobatic dance troupe Zurcaroh. The dancers – who ranged in age from young children to adults – took the stage to show off their breathtaking display of gymnastic abilities.

The impressive routine featured a death-defying mix of balancing tricks, synchronized dancing, and aerial acrobatics. Audience members and judges alike were left biting their nails as performers were flung high into the air and caught by their fellow troupe members.

~Nurse Michael Ketterer Earns Golden Buzzer~

When he’s not at his day-job as a pediatric mental health nurse, Michael Ketterer, is a devoted husband and father of six. Five of Ketterer’s children were adopted from foster care and one has cerebral palsy. The Tennessee native who now resides in Orange County California is also a worship leader.

If you think his story is already amazing wait until you hear Michael Ketterer’s voice.

“Because my children come out of foster care and when you’re surviving, you can’t dream. That has been one of the most rewarding things is providing them [my kids] with a home where they are free to dream. So I’m here to show my kids that if their dad can live out his dreams, then nothing is impossible for them.”

He soulfully sang the cover of, “To Love Somebody” by the Bee Gees.
