Vocal Group Linkin’ Bridge Stuns Simon Cowell on America’s Got Talent 2016 (VIDEO)
Vocal group Linkin’ Bridge stunned judge Simon Cowell on the America’s Got Talent 2016 “Judge Cuts 1” on Tuesday, July 12, 2016!
Linkin’ Bridge sings an a cappella version of “Free Bird” that I think would have earned a Golden Buzzer if Ne-Yo hadn’t used it already. Their harmonies were positively impeccable, and they just come across as a legitimate, star-making group, in the vein of Boyz II Men. They’re the kind of R&B vocal group we don’t really have in the mainstream market today. I love them. Howie states that Ne-Yo was looking for passion, and that’s what these guys delivered. Ne-Yo agrees, praising them for their dedication. Both Heidi and Mel B are blown away by their flawless vocals. Simon, meanwhile, says that these four guys are the ones he was looking for when he came to judge this show, even though he may not have known it. The guys express a desire to change the world through their music, to which Simon responds by praising them for the risk and inventiveness of their song choice. “You are everything this show is all about,” he tells them.
