Contestant Travis Pratt Wows America’s Got Talent Judges


NBC’s America’s Got Talent is off to a stellar start with two new judges (Mel B. and Heidi Klum) and unique acts that have the internet all abuzz.

In week one, we saw a floating yogi and now viewers were treated to the operatic sounds of Georgia native Travis Pratt. The singer surprised the crowd and judges with a performance that showed off his impressive opera falsetto.  Judge Howard Stern exclaimed that  “This is the most outrageous audition that I have ever seen and I mean this is the kindest way sir…you are a freak but I mean it in like a good way” (that is a strong comment coming from Howard Stern and the variety of AGT like acts that he’s seen over the decades with his wildly successful radio show).

Pratt said that he usually just sang around the house, and credited his longtime girlfriend for pushing him to take the stage. “Don’t you think everyone should hear this?” Pratt’s girlfriend said after being brought up onstage.  As an added cherry on the cake, Pratt got down on one knee asked her to marry him. Of course, she said yes.  Nick Cannon’s fake crying and side-stage antics on the side stage were hilarious and rounded out the great audition.

It’s kicking off to be a great season!
