Seven years after Susan Boyle first shocked the world on Britain’s Got Talent, an 82-year-old man named John Hetlinger has shocked the world on America’s Got Talent…in a slightly different way. Last night, the retired aerospace engineer and former Navy pilot appeared on the show and surprised the judges and audience with his choice of song: Drowning Pool’s “Bodies.” He really committed, too, delivering a pretty intense performance. (It seems he’s had some practice.) Enjoy.
He’s apparently moving on to the next round, plus he’s snagged this sweet invite:
Shout out to the 82 year old dude that sang 'Bodies' on America's Got Talent. You are welcome to join us on stage anytime !!!
