'America's Got Talent' judge Simon Cowell calls Detroit Youth Choir director 'inspiration'
Choir gives semifinal performance
LOS ANGELES – After the Detroit Youth Choir performed live on "America's Got Talent" on Tuesday, judge Simon Cowell whispered something in director Anthony White's ear.
"I told him, 'You're an inspiration.' I like him, I like the kids and I think they can win this," Cowell said.
The choir opened Tuesday's semifinal performance with a video thanking their choir director for all he has done for them before giving a powerful rendition of Panic! at the Disco's "High Hopes."
Five performers will move on to the finals. Those five acts will be announced Wednesday evening. Tune in to Local 4 at 8 p.m. to see if the Detroit Youth Choir advances.
