The Detroit Youth Choir shot for the stars on Tuesday night at the semifinals of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,”and now the next round is in your hands.
Vying for one of five spots in the finals, the energetic choir dazzled with a performance of Panic! At the Disco’s “High Hopes.” It included a brief rap and step performance.
Before Tuesday’s show, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Lt. Gov. Garlan Gilchrist posted a video on social media, wishing the choir well.
The choir, established in 1996, features children from ages 8 to 18. It teaches and develops students through music education, dance and theatrical arts, according to AGT’s website.
Flint native and show host Terry Crews shared his excitement about the DYC while talking to Kimberly Gill.
The results of Tuesday’s semifinals will be announced Wednesday. All told, 10 acts will compete in the finals Sept. 17 and Sept. 18. The winner will receive a $1 million prize and a slot as a headlining act in Las Vegas.
The choir’s performance, meanwhile, comes as the Parade Company announced on Tuesday that the group will be the opening act at America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in Detroit on Nov. 28.
