The international wonder TNT Boys promised a sure win when they belted out the musical ‘Dream Girls’ on American reality talent show The World’s Best on Thursday.
The trio – comprised of Keifer Sanchez, Mackie Empuerto, and Francis Concepcion – smashed a cover of Jennifer Hudson’s version of "And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going" that was worthy of another standing ovation from judges Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles, and Faith Hill.
Even TV host James Corden was impressed. “It’s so infectious. For a while, I never quite knew why you were called the TNT Boys, and then I realized, whenever you sing, you just blow the roof off the place,” he said.
RuPaul said that the performance made him love the TNT Boys even more. “I didn’t think I could love them anymore. But my goodness, every note, pitch-perfect. You boys are fabulous.”
“I think we’re all witnessing superstars,” followed Faith. “Can I say? You have the kind of confidence that allows the audience to relax and enjoy your performance. I just feel like the luckiest person in the world being here and sit here and witness this.”
Then competing against dance group Emotional Line for the Battle Round of the competition, the TNT Boys were chosen to advance to the next round after earning a total score of 97 points.
