I'm with Simon, I was very confused. 😅

Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” was super appropriate for the grand reveal in this AGT audition.

See, Emily Bland is a hotel front desk clerk from Arkansas who actually came to sing and not be funny, even though she actually is hilarious after an exchange with the four judges.

Simon asked who was the worst guest she’s had.

Bland jokes, “Okay, I don’t want to throw my mom under the bus… her name is Karen.”

The 29-year-old has an incredible voice, but you will have to hear her sing to believe it.

Emily loves Garth Brooks, but no one expected her to sing like a male country singer.

Not even the four judges who by now are so used to unique performances on the show.

She starts singing in a bewildering baritone that had jaws dropping.

There’s just no way that’s Bland!

“At first I was like, that’s definitely not her voice. A few seconds later I was like, dang, is that really her voice? That’s awesome, then came the husband and I was like, this is some cool new unique talent we’ve never seen on this show. Awesome!!” says a confused viewer.

But Emily sings, the audience and judges staring in disbelief at what they were witnessing.

The song is Josh Turner’s “Your Man”, which is ironic considering the fact that she sounds like one.

When she finishes, Sofia Vergara comes out with it saying, “That’s not you!”

True enough, a man emerges from the back, joining Emily on stage and introducing himself as the husband.

“That was me singing,” the man with the cowboy hat confirms.

“So you’re a ventriloquist and your wife is your puppet,” Mandel addresses him.

Emily starts shaking her head but the man nods yes, attempting to put his hand around her to which the quick witted Howie responds by saying not to put his hand in her.

Talk about entertainment!

Simon Cowell adds, “‘I’m slightly disappointed, because I thought that was her singing.”

Sofia Vergara admits, “I don’t even know how to judge this thing.”

Bland can actually do her trick with anyone as she demonstrates with Cowell when he says, “You are so much better looking in real life.”

She then does the same trick with Vergara, and even more impressively with Heidi Klum speaking in German.

Emily’s got an amazing skill right there. German is not easy to learn!

Here’s another viewer saying,

“I’ve never seen anything like that before but they both had me intrigued and I want to see more of them for some crazy reason, they could actually go a long way on the show, kind of like the underdogs of AGT, something different.”

We’d love to see more of Emily too!

She gets Howie, Heidi, and Sofia to say yes, while Simon gives a question mark as he’s still not sure what to make of her act.

Fair enough. Bland is anything but bland anyway!
