In the last decade, the showbiz industry created hundreds of TV shows and programs for the viewers to enjoy. Some get cut after a short period; some endure the test of time.
That said, it is fascinating to wonder why America’s Got Talent is still hanging around and even draws such a huge interest.
It is not only about the outstandingly talented people who get involved in winning the top prize. It is also about their stories and their journeys.
Regardless of the occasion, music is almost always well received by the audiences. The best example of this can be seen throughout the seasons of America’s Got Talent, where the audience is moved to tears by some truly heartwarming performances.
Lots participate, but few get to leave their mark in the viewers’ hearts. We have taken the liberty to showcase some of the best singers from the show’s history – we believe made an impact on the show.
1) Darci Lynne
In Darci’s case, it is quite easy to find highlights – after all, she is the winner. This means her abilities have been remarked and validated by millions of people who were willing to make an effort and vote for her act.
Darci is bound to be the headliner of a Las Vegas show, and she is proved she has what it takes to run a sold-out:
- not just singing, but ventriloquism-singing
- command of the stage
- finely executed novel concept
- interaction with the audience.
Darci could have successfully competed as a singer by herself, but she used her talent to bring something on top of her vocals.
A performer like her will have any audience pay attention from start to finish, staring in bewilderment at how she manages to juggle so many skills with such ease.
2) Evie Clair
Aged 13 by the time she auditioned for season 12 of America’s Got Talent, Evie Clair was no stranger to stardom, since she has established herself as an emerging star at the age of 8.
However, previous accomplishments are not a prerequisite for landing in the top 10 at AGT – especially in the case of talented singers. Her complex piano skills, pure voice, and inspiring passion managed to transcend the screen and win the hearts of Americans.
3. Chris Kläfford
Chris is a Swedish singer who can envelop the listeners into a swirl of emotions with his soothing voice.
He had his first taste of fame back in 2017 when he was declared the winner of the thirteenth season of the Swedish Idol show. Following his successful breakthrough, he went on tour, having one sold-out concert after another.
After a short while, during the auditions of the 2019 edition of America’s Got Talent, he performed a soulful rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine” which propelled Chris yet again into the spotlight.
4. Grace VanderWaal
It takes courage to step in front of a crowd. However, at only 12 years old, Grace VanderWaal had no hesitation whatsoever. The moment she stepped on the stage of America’s Got Talent, she was all smiles.
Only the best singers out there can get the audience 100% involved in the performance. Her radiant smile, combined with an incredible set of vocal chops, made the audience to fall in love with her instantly.
By the end of her short musical, everyone was clapping and singing along with her. As Howie Mandel put it, her performance was a miracle!
5. Christian Guardino
Sometimes, all it takes for a singer to have an audience spellbound is just outstanding presence and jaw-dropping vocal skills.
This is precisely what Christian Guardino proved during his audition for season 12 of America’s Got Talent.
As soon as the melody kicked in, he had all the judges and audience gasping in admiration for his raw talent. Plus, he is ‘a natural’ and feels like home while singing on a big stage, as you can see from his golden buzzer-worthy act:
6. Anna Clendening
It is a well-known fact that music has the power to heal. Anna Clendening is a living example that there’s truth to this claim. She turned to music as a way to overcome her severe anxiety and depression.
Her big debut would come in the 9th season of America’s Got Talent, where she sang an extravagant and emotional cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
Later on, when she matured as a singer, she decided she would want music to be a significant part of her entire life. With the boost of confidence and exposure she received from AGT, her dream came closer to reality!
7) Kechi Okwuchi
Many times, music can be a healing agent. So when an inspiring story doubles it, sound plays right at the heartstrings of the listeners. Kechi Okwuchi brought both the inspirational aspect and the marvelous vocals to season 12 of America’s Got Talent.
Her soothing voice transgresses the TV screen and the songs Kechi sings get a whole new meaning when you learn she is a plane crash survivor.
8. Justin Rhodes
Justin Rhodes is one of the best singers from the 9th season of AGT. His music is alike a rollercoaster of emotions, starting as echoey and moody, only to pick up the pace and be more explosive towards the end.
During the audition rounds, he came up on stage, singing a breathtaking rendition of Avicii’s “Wake Me Up.” His performance was very well-received, getting thunderous applause from the audience.
His passion for music comes from a very ardent desire to prove himself and to inspire others to push towards making their dreams a reality.
