Stating that it was amazing would be too less to describe their performance. Overall it left a lasting impression filled with goosebumps from the start till the end.
The judges didn't even wait for their performance to end to reveal their excitement for the TNT Boys. After they were done singing, Hill said, "First of all, you have some serious attitude. You’re so precious and so sweet but when you were singing, you were in that song, you were like, bam!"
