Johnny Showcase & the Mystic Ticket's 'Sensual' act and body hair has 'AGT' fans floored
Johnny Showcase & the Mystic Ticket were one of the best acts on Episode 2 of 'AGT' and the female vocalists rocking body hair was an added plus
Johnny Showcase & The Mystic Ticket stole the show on 'America's Got Talent' Season 16 Episode 2. The premiere last week did have a couple of passable acts but the honchos at 'AGT' went to town by lining up the best performances for Tuesday, June 8. One of them was this band that looked like would receive 4 X's from the judges but the outcome was quite the opposite.
The band from Philadelphia made their first appearance on national television but what many don't know is they're very famous in their hometown. Those who were about to witness them in action for the first time were sure this was just a filler act. Johnny Showcase & The Mystic Ticket successfully quashed all these assumptions as soon as they began belting out their original song 'Sensual'. The judges loved them, especially Simon Cowell who called them one of the best acts this season. The audiences loved the band as well and the fact that they prided themselves as a body-positive group is what stuck out the most and at this point, all four of them are a hit with the fans. 'AGT' Season 16 has some of the best bands participating this season including 1achord that performed last week and Johnny Showcase & The Mystic Ticket undoubtedly will be counted in the lineup.
Who are Johnny Showcase & The Mystic Ticket on 'America's Got Talent?
The band came on the show with just four members - the lead Johnny, his "spiritual adviser" Rumi Kitchen and a pair of female vocalists collectively known as 'The Truth' but the band's Facebook page reveals they are a 10-piece funk joy dance experience. “We couldn’t bring the whole group because it’s a 10-piece band, so I had my band help me make a backing track of one of our songs and I brought three singers with me,” he said to NBC 10 News. “So, there are four of us singing on 'America’s Got Talent.'"
All of the four members were very synced and their voices meshed beautifully. That coupled with the hilarious lyrics which went, "let's be sensual not sexual cuz I am married" left the audiences in splits. There was absolutely nothing that anyone could hate about the band and fans watching from home went gaga about them on Twitter. "Oh my God, I LOVE Johnny Showcase on America’s Got Talent!!! Brilliantly Hysterical!! #AGT" a tweet by a fan read.
"They’re Philly legends! Give ‘em everything" wrote another longtime fan of the band. "Dude, not only was his performance great but his little thing about being body positive gained @johnnyshowcase a new fan this evening! @AGT" read another tweet. "Yaaaaass! Normalize female body hair! It’s natural! @johnnyshowcase knows what’s up!!" another tweet read.
