What happened in America’s Got Talent?


The group started the audition by singing their original song “Amnesia” and partway through Simon Cowell stopped the performance and asked, ”there were some issues with your vocals, do you have a second song.’ Then, they performed their song “Feelin'” with better vocals.

Sofia Vergara commented, ”I really though with the first song that there was something very off, but then when you guys started singing the second song I really liked it.” Nevertheless, they received a solid ‘no’ from Howie Mandel who referred the youngest as a future star.

“However, you have to make your own decisions. You’ve gotta be yourselves. Do what you want, wear what you want, sing what you want, and they you’re gonna have fun,” Simon gave a fine advice to the Menudo boys. Despite getting a ‘no’, the band made it to the next round with three other votes from the judges.
