On Season 11 of America’s Got Talent, the a capella band Linkin’ Bridge made it to the finals but alas 12-year-old ukelele-playing singer Grace VanderWaal won the title and prize. (AGT judge Mel B said Linkin’ Bridge “put Boyz II Men to shame.”) On Season 12, there’s another all-male singing group competing on America’s Got Talent — Final Draft. The four-man band from Atlanta, Georgia consists of — Dnyce, Lucky, Voice, and Divine. If they look familiar, maybe you saw them on VH1’s reality TV show Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta. (They’re tight with hip hop manager Ms Deb and her son Brandon).

Final Draft tugs heartstrings by covering old school classics by the Commodores (watch their version of “Easy” below) and they occasionally tap into the New Edition catalog. But don’t call them predictable. They can hit Stevie Nicks’ high notes in their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide”, too. America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
