Kevin Skinner: America’s Got Talent


He came out on stage tonight on America’s Got Talent, and as usual, the judges…well, judged him. Kevin Skinner was dressed plainly, baseball cap on backwards, and wielded a guitar.

Kevin came out as the last audition of the day. A chicken catcher from Mayfield, KY with a deep southern drawl, Skinner didn’t have the Hollywood look that some of the other America’s Got Talent contestants do.

But the moment Kevin Skinner began to play If Tomorrow Never Comes by Garth Brooks, everyone knew he was the truth. After a few notes, The Hoff sat back in his chair and said, “wow.” Needless to say he moved on to the second round.

As soon as the show ended the net went wild with searches for the video and pictures Kevin Skinner on America’s Got Talent, and we’ve got it here.

Check out the video of Kevin Skinner’s audition below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below.

    From the commercials they aired of this gentlemen being laughed at I had hoped he would blow them away with a Susan Boyle-esque performance. Nonetheless, I too misjudged him as soon as he started throwing out numbers of his chicken catch.

    And lo and behold, I was blown away. His voice melted into this smooth, heartbroken sound. His guitar amplified the feelings. And the audience just loved him.

    I guess that’s why they aired him last.

    Good for him, I’m originally from North Carolina and I too have that southern drawl. When I moved to California, all too often I received the “where are you from” and “say that again” treatment all the time. I’m glad he got to be proof to the age old statement, never judge a book by it’s cover. He has my vote!

    I love it when there’s such a contradiction between what a singer looks like, rough country everyday guy, and what they sound like, smooth as honey,honest soul bared to the world.
    I hope he also has some of his own lyrics inside of him. We’ll see.

    I watched hoping to see some more of the Witches in Bikinis and some of the other train wrecks afterward so was around just long enough to see Mr. Skinner come on stage. The laughter from the audience when he described his line of work made my heart sink and I prayed silently he’d blow them all away…thankfully my prayers were answered.

    Mr. Skinner, everyone in that audience who laughed, or dismissed you owes you a huge, preferably public and humble apology. If I were Garth Brooks, I’d be honored by your amazing performance of my song.

    Mr. Skinner’s performance was beyond compare. Words fail me as I try to critique his magnificent audition. I’m still wiping the tears from my eyes watching his performance over and over again on the Internet. The words genuine, charming, unaffected, sincere and perfectly natural are just a few that to come to mind in describing his great talent. His country bumpkin ways only add to the ambience. He will win hands down and I’ll be the first in line if he ever makes it to Austin Texas to perform, and I’m hoping he will very soon. A born star!!

    I’m still crying….. he was such a good soul and such a moving singer. Anyone who can make you reflect on you own life and feel such deep emotion deserves to be a star. This show certainly lets us see people who may not be the glamorious but this is “the real deal”. I love to see someone like Kevin. I feel honored and extreamly lucky to have listened to him sing and share in this moment.
