'America's Got Talent' Season 15: Double Dragon twins light up the stage with their fiery vocals
Season 15 of 'America's Got Talent' kicked off in a truly spectacular fashion. America's hottest talent show returned for its worldwide premiere on Tuesday night, as another lineup of talented performers vied to be voted as America's best entertainer. As we have now become accustomed to every year, there was another huge lineup of gifted singers, dancers, impressionists, magicians and a slew of other incredible and innovative performers ready to show America what they had to offer.
Another welcome change that is sure to have fans pleased was the addition of popular TV personality Sofia Vergara to the star-studded judging panel. Vergara joined jury stalwarts Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel, along with returning fan-favorite Heidi Klum, who reprised her role as judge after a short hiatus. As usual, Terry Crews was on hand with his dazzling suit and ever-present smile, making sure the contestants were comfortable and ready to perform to their best capabilities.
The talented Peruvian singing duo Double Dragon definitely needed to be top of their game, with Crews encouraging them to give it their best shot as they huddled in the wings, waiting for their moment to shine. He was doing that for a reason — by the time the twins from San Francisco came out on stage, the crowd had already been treated to a whole half-hour of lackluster auditions, who although entertaining, had also maxed out the cringe factor of the show with their dismal performances. Both the judges and the audience were restless and impassive, waiting for someone to come along and sweep them off their feet. And boy, did Double Dragon deliver.
The singing 31-year-old twins Andrea and Irene from Peru were perfectly in sync with each other, from their glittering outfits to their barnstorming voices that really lit up the premiere night. The two fabulous singers sang a sizzling cover of Geri Halliwell's 'Raining Men' and enthralled the crowd with their magical, powerful voices that shimmered and shone with fiery intensity.
Vergara dished out special acclaim for her fellow Latinas, Klum and Mandel were wowed by their incredible voices and Cowell was so pleased that they had broken a string of terrible auditions that he even came onstage to hug them, saying the curse had been lifted. On social media, fans were wowed as well. "The #doubledragon twins made me feel more connected with them than anyone else so far on #AmericasGotTalent. Now That’s Talent!!" Another viewer exclaimed, "The Double Dragon Twins were amazing those ladies can sing I loved it!"
You can tune in for more exciting performances on America's Got Talent next Tuesday night at 8 pm on the NBC network.
