‘Glee’ Star Blows ‘America’s Got Talent’ Judges Away With Rihanna Song
Glee: The FOX show on which Noah Guthrie appeared during Season 6, and also the feeling that consumed him after blowing judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Mel B away Tuesday night (June 12) with his first performance on America's Got Talent.
Guthrie, who played William McKinley High School senior Roderick Meeks on Glee, took Rihanna’s Anti track “Love On The Brain" for a spin as part of AGT's initial auditions, and it proved to be the right choice. The 24-year-old — armed with only an electric guitar — blew the judges away, and quickly assumed a spot in the show's second round.
And he was absolutely overjoyed when his efforts paid off, he said on his social media platforms.
"Thanks so much to everyone at @AGT, but especially to all the viewers for your very kind messages and comments! I'm so excited to be moving on to the 2nd round. I can't wait to sing for y'all again!!!" he wrote on Twitter to some incredibly supportive fan sentiment.
"Absolutely incredible and one of my big inspirations on glee! I’m always know as the “fat girl” and your role model made me have more confidence! And I also sing!! So much love," one follower wrote in response, while another noted "Literally I cried it’s was so good. Thank you for being a beautiful human!"
