There will be a variety of unusual acts on Season 12 of America’s Got Talent which premieres May 30. And you might be surprised when some of them, including a piano playing chicken named Jogku, advances in the competition. Another unique act to follow is Puddles Pity Party.
Dressed as a sad clown, Puddles sings famous sad songs including John Lennon’s “Imagine,” Roy Orbison’s “Cry” and Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here,” among others. (And sometimes he mashes up songs like Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” and The Who’s “Pinball Wizard”, see video below.) It’s a hilarious concept for an act but will AGT judge Simon Cowell be able to see past the clown costume? He’s a self-proclaimed coulrophobic. America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
