Not every contestant on America’s Got Talent is a novice, struggling for a moment in the spotlight. Case in point: Us the Duo.
The husband-and-wife act, comprising Michael and Carissa Alvarado, is by most metrics, pretty famous. Previously signed to Republic Records, Us the Duo are recognized as one of the first acts to be signed to a major label following success on Vine. They’ve toured with Pentatonix and headlined their own dates in the U.S. and around the world. A month-long summer tour is booked. And they’ve accumulated 4.3 million followers on Facebook and 1.2 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
