UPDATE: Benicio Bryant’s full performance is now live. Watch it below.
On the next episode of America’s Got Talent, airing Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC, contestant Benicio Bryant wows the judges with his powerful voice, which you can watch in this exclusive preview clip above.
The 14-year-old singer from Washington gives a spine-tingling performance of Brandi Carlile‘s “The Joke” on AGT, effortlessly nailing the song’s famously challenging sky-high chorus. In the chilling clip above, Bryant exhibits his range and powerful vibrato.
This isn’t Bryant’s first time singing “The Joke”: He even joined Carlile herself to perform the song on Late Night With Seth Meyers in July 2018 after he made it to the finals on The Voice Kids in Germany.
“Benicio understands this song on a level I can only imagine,” Carlile said last year. “When he sings it, it comes to life in a new way for me. He won’t be 13 forever, and he knows how it ends.”
See his performance with Carlile below, and watch the full performance on Tuesday’s America’s Got Talent episode at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
