Herrod’s nerves were palpable as he stood before the judges of “America’s Got Talent,” ready to audition. However, things didn’t start off on the best foot when Simon Cowell expressed his disdain for the song Herrod had chosen to perform. Despite feeling shocked and frightened, Herrod decided to stick with his original plan and performed “Tomorrow,” a song Cowell claimed was his “worst song in the world.”
However, from the first few notes, the judges and audience were captivated by Herrod’s delicate yet professional voice. The judges’ reactions were clear – Sofia Vergara’s jaw dropped in amazement, while Howie Mandel couldn’t help but exclaim, “Wow!” As Herrod closed his eyes and let the music take over, he continued to stun the audience with his stunning performance.
By the end of the song, Herrod had earned a thunderous round of applause and cheers from the audience and judges. Even Cowell, who had previously expressed his dislike for the song, couldn’t help but smile at Herrod’s exceptional performance. The judges were so impressed with Herrod’s singing abilities that he received a standing ovation from Cowell, Mandel, and Heidi Klum.
In a surprising twist, Vergara pushed the golden buzzer, sending confetti raining down from the ceiling and advancing Herrod straight to the live audition round. The judges were blown away by Herrod’s incredible voice, and even Cowell had to admit that “Tomorrow” was no longer his “worst song in the world.” Herrod’s stunning performance had earned him a place in the competition and brought him one step closer to winning the $1 million prize.
