America’s Got Talent season 17 has seen some remarkable performances till now but this one by uncle and niece won the hearts of the judges and audiences.
JoJo and Bri sang their hearts out to the classic “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Diana Ross and The Supremes.
Jojo made his debut on AGT two years ago, when he was part of the singing trio ‘Resound’ who left a great impression on “America’s Got Talent” due to their humble nature and powerful voices.
‘Resound’ performed “What the World Needs Now Is Love” during their audition, and made it through to the live shows but sadly got eliminated in the quarter-finals.
Jojo has returned to the talent competition along with his young niece, Bri. The uncle and niece have been singing online for a while, however, this is the first time they are singing live in front of an audience.
When Simon Cowell asked Jojo what he learned most from his first experience on America’s Got Talent, his reply was “not to give up.”
Bri said she was excited and nervous to perform first time on the stage, and told the judges, “My dream is to make the world smile and make the world a better place.” When asked what she’d do with $1M she said, “I would like to give back to charity.”
Jojo and Bri give a seamless performance that is teeming with energy, enthusiasm and positivity. The audience can’t stop themselves from getting up and dancing along with them.
Judge Sofia Vergara tells them that they look like they’ve “been doing this forever” and Heidi Klum says, they “look perfect together and sound even better.”
Judge Simon Cowell appears to be impressed the most by them and says, “That to me was the definition of joy and magic.” Judge Howie Mandel says, “You’re going to be remembered.”
All four judges vote in favor of the talented duo and send them to the next round.
