DJ Khaled Gives Golden Buzzer to the ‘Next Ed Sheeran’ Chase Goehring On ‘America’s Got Talent’ 2017

Chase Goehring impressed the judges and the crowd with his first audition on America’s Got Talent last month when he played an original song, “Hurt”. He went back Tuesday night with another original, titled “A Capella,” which had all the hallmarks of an Ed Sheeran song.

When Simon Cowell asked how the 21-year-old from Nolensville, Tennessee was feeling about reaching these middle stages of the show, Goehring confessed: “There has been so much talent here, it’s been so unique and I’m actually really nervous.”

DJ Khaled, a guest judge on Tuesday night, was an instant convert. “You know I do this music thing for real. I put out a lot of hit records. Let me tell you something. The lyrics, they’re so real and authentic like an a capella, the way you were breaking it down. And I was listening to the words and the way you got the crowd involved…you’re on your way to being a star. This show and this stage is going to make you into a superstar.”

It looks like Goehring will be a superstar as DJ Khaled hit the golden buzzer, making the singer the seventh contestant to head straight to the live rounds.
