The highly-anticipated season 17 of 'America's Got Talent' kicked off with a jaw-dropping performance by The Pack Drumline. Created by Perry Donta’e, the drumming group featured a set of talented performers who are not only drummers but also dancers. What started off as an after-school program for at-risk youth, quickly became a popular touring group representing the likes of WNBA champions like Chicago Sky!

The group decided to try their luck on 'AGT' with hopes of winning the grand prize of $1 Million and an opportunity to be the headline act in Las Vegas! clad in the white and gold outfits, the group took the stage by storm as they effortlessly juggled between drumming and performing acrobatic dance moves. The high-energy packed performance concluded with a drummer hanging upside down while carrying his drums! The judges- Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum, Simon Cowell, and Howie Mandel, were in total awe after watching the performance.
