Choir groups have always been a hit amongst the judges as well as the audience on 'America's Got Talent'. We mean what's not to love about a group of singers belting out gospel songs in perfectly harmonized tune? Well, The Dremeka Choir managed to break this streak with their death metal performance on the recently aired episode of the NBC show.

When The Dremeka Choir set foot onto the stage, the judges and the audience were expecting them to sing some melodious gospel song, but instead they were greeted with Mongolian throat singing, and a metal version of Britney Spears' 'Toxic' as the stage lights blinked and created an eerie atmosphere. But before the group could even conclude their performance, Heidi Klum immediately hit the no buzzer. Thankfully, the other judges and most of the audience seemed to be enjoying the unique act.

By the end of their performance, the judges, especially Simon Cowell, couldn't stop raving about how the choir group's act was so unexpected and "dark". Simon, Sofia Vergara, and Howie Mandel, gave a resounding yes, while Heidi still stood her ground and claimed that their performance wasn't her cup of team. Despite the difference of opinions amongst the judges, since the group got three yeses, they will be advancing to the next round.

It wasn't just the judges who had very polarizing views on the choir group's performance, even fans too were divided when it came to their thoughts on the performance. While some fans lauded the group for their unique act, others felt that it was demonic. A fan commented on the show's YouTube clip of the group's performance with, "Honestly, I thought this was really good. I think it was a great spin on a choir, not a lot of people can sing like that, and it was really entertaining. I’m a defender of this act." Another fan wrote, "Wow. This death metal choir is everything I never knew we needed. Honestly, the feeling they portray gets across the messages from both "O Fortuna" and "Toxic" more immediately and universally than either of their original scorings. I'm very interested to see what else they do." "I thought it was cool and unexpected. I'm mean I don't love Brittany Spears but I liked it😎," added a fan. "I have seen many many choirs and was a part of a part of a choir for eight years and I have never heard a rendition of Carmina Burana O Fortuna done in metal. This is highly creative and so so interesting!!! Love it!!!" declared a fan.

Some other fans sided with Heidi and gave a hard pass to the performance. A fan shared, "This is pretty creative and although I like some death metal, I didn't like this. Sorry. If I was a Judge, I'd be on Heidi's side." "This sounded so demonic. No thank you," expressed a fan. Another fan echoed similar thoughts with, "Yikes.. they all sound possessed lol . That would be a no from me." "The devil and demons on stage. All of them are possessed. And the judges giving credit to the devil. I won’t watch them again. God does not appreciate that. We christians go for the light and the light is Christ," pointed out a fan.
