Earlier this week, I shared that a Southborough native auditioned for America’s Got Talent. At that time, the results were a secret.
Frankly, I doubted Storm Large would be promoting the show on social media if her performance was a total embarrassment.
Still, her cover of “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” was far beyond not-embarrassing. AGT has posted her “Unbelievable” performance as one of the night’s highlights. (See clip above.)
At the audition filmed in March and aired this week, Large got a standing O from judges and their unanimous votes to move on in the competition.
The Telegram continued it’s coverage of the singer, sharing some of the judges’ reactions during Tuesday’s broadcast:
“That was insane. I mean you were like possessed on that stage,” Heidi Klum said after the performance. “I’ve never heard this song this way before. It was incredible.”
Howie Mandel enthused, “You would never know that was a cover … You made me love that song,” while Sofia Vergara said, “I was mesmerized.”
Perhaps most importantly, Simon Cowell said, “You have an amazing voice, an amazing personality, amazing energy.”

Stay tuned for the Live Round phase of AGT, where fans will get a chance to vote their support for acts to move up in the competition. (Fifteen years ago, Large made it to the top five performers in the show Rock Star: Supernova.)
