Man's Original Song On 'AGT' Turns When He Starts Rapping

October 9th, 2019

There are plenty of reality shows on television though each one offers something a little different.

The entire craze began with American Idol back in 2002, though it went on to spawn plenty of other shows in the same vein. Some of the shows were dedicated to singing exclusively, others branched out to dancing.

Still, for anyone who likes a little bit of everything, that’s where America’s Got Talent comes in. Like many other shows, it has a panel of judges who decide which acts will advance and which ones won’t.

Still, the talent base is incredibly broad.

Regardless of the details of each specific show, every episode still features a few standout acts.

The one we’re talking about today came from the show’s 2017 season. The performer in question is Chase Goehring, a singer-songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee.

As he explains, he was a shy little kid who gradually started opening up as soon as he took music lessons. After working on his musical abilities, he gradually added in lyrics to his music. From that journey, he found himself on America’s Got Talent.

As he explains backstage, it’s the biggest crowd he’s ever performed in front of in his life.

As Goehring walks out onstage, he introduces himself to the panel of judges.

From the very beginning, all the judges are grinning and loving his energy. As he explains, he’s going to sing an original song called “Hurt” drawing from experiences in his own life.

Although everyone seems to like him from the beginning, it’s always a bit of a risky move to sing an original song.

Regardless, the judges clear the way for him to perform and Goehring straps on his guitar.

A moment later, he starts strumming and singing to the audience.

As he promised, the song begins with romantic lyrics sung to a woman that he has feelings for. Right away, all the women in the audience are clapping along and enjoying the song.

But things take a twist when Goehring starts doing some rapid fire rapping in the middle of it all! Although his voice was great from the beginning, nobody saw this coming. Even so, it’s clear he has some skills in both parts of the song.

Above all, what shines through is Goehring’s overwhelming confidence in his lyrics and stage presence.

When it’s all over, the whole crowd gives him an enormous round of applause—and even the judges on their feet.

After that, it’s time for everyone to give their feedback. As the judges themselves say, they find themselves speechless. Though everyone loved Goehring’s singing, judge Howie Mandel says the rapping took it over the top!

When it gets to judge Simon Cowell, he’s absolutely beaming at how good it was. At the end of it all, the judges take a vote.

Needless to say, the judges give him all four yeses!
