In this video, Kentucky country singer Marty Brown amazes both the judges and the audience in the auditions for America’s Got Talent 2013.
Before beginning his performance, the judges appeared sceptical about his ability, and some of the audience were laughing. However, once Marty starts singing a Bob Dylan song, everyone is stunned at how good his voice is and guitar skills are. They immediately begin cheering him.
Following his act, the judges invite his wife onto the stage after spotting her. They hug and kiss before she reveals that she did not tell Marty that he was going to be going on the show until they were travelling to the audition.
All four judges agree to send him through to the next round, and commented how you should “never judge a book by its cover”. Marty Brown progressed through to the semi-finals of the competition before being eliminated.
