Viral Video Stars Jorge and Alexa Narvaez Charm Howard Stern on ‘America’s Got Talent’
Jorge Narvaez and his daughter Alexa’s cover of the Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros song ‘Home’ has over 20 million views on YouTube.
However, impressing the internet and winning over the notoriously critical Howard Stern are completely different things. But that’s what the father and daughter duo were tasked with when they took the stage on ‘American Got Talent’ during Stern’s debut as a judge.
While seven-year-old Alexa admitted she was “scared” as she looked out into the audience before beginning her performance, her unrelenting smile suggested she was anything but. So would the Narvaezs win over the panel?
Mission accomplished. And all it really took was a few bars of the song from Alexa.
“Jorge, I wish you were my dad,” Stern said, before sending the duo to Las Vegas for the second round.
This got us thinking, what other viral videos stars should try their luck on ’America’s Got Talent’? How about nine-year-old Ryan Watson who does an amazing version of Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Crazy Train,‘ which we figure Sharon would enjoy.
