Birdie Singing Group Tries Out for ‘America’s Got Talent’
When America’s Got Talent, the nationwide, televised talent show, returns to NBC in June, a group of local finches hope that they’ll capture hearts around the country.
The area birds, who overcame adversity after growing up on the south side of the lawn, will showcase their a capella talents during auditions on the first episode of the season. Their story is so compelling that NBC has been using clips of the quartet to promote the show.
“These little birds could definitely have a break-out Susan Boyle-type moment,” said entertainment writer Sam Holder of Variety, referring to the opera singer whose audition on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 shot her to international fame and fortune.
“They’re that good.”
