Alex Boye and His Band ‘Shake It Off’ on America’s Got Talent 10 (VIDEO)

Alex Boye and his band brought down the house with a unique take on “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift on America’s Got Talent 10, “Auditions 5”!

Alex is from Nigeria originally, and he’s been singing with his band for a long time, performing wherever people would accept them, whether on the streets or at old folks’ homes. He sings “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift, and this is fantastic. His voice is great, his dance moves are on-point, and his band is amazing. Seriously, they can all dance too, and their arrangement is really interesting. Alex dives off the stage and does a split on the ground, channeling James Brown. I absolutely loved this, and so did the audience. Hell, so did Howie and Heidi, who give Alex a standing ovation.

Howie says that, in his six years here, this was his favorite music act here. Mel B thanks them for auditioning today, calling it brilliant and saying she didn’t want it to stop. Heidi loved their sound, their attitude, their facial expressions, and basically everything about them. Howard says he’s never seen anything like that split at the end, and calls him an incredible dancer. Howie says Alex has reached millions tonight, causing Alex to break down with emotion. He thanks the judges for giving him a chance. “No, thank YOU!” Howie declares. He kicks things off with a yes, and the other three judges quickly follow suit.
