82-year-old stuns on ‘America’s Got Talent’


John Hetlinger shocked the judges and audience of the popular talent show last month with a cover of American rock band Drowning Pool’s song ‘Bodies’.

Showing off skills he honed during karaoke sessions, the clip of the performance has since had over 8 million views on Youtube and made him a viral star.

The band even invited him to join them on stage at a music festival in Chicago last week for another round, proving yet again that age is no barrier to rocking out.
