The semifinals stage on America’s Got Talent was the make-it-or-break-it moment every contestant was waiting for.

The finals were coming up and this was every performer’s chance to win over the country.

Christian Guardino decided he needed to do something different. He needed to add a little oomph to the standard covers everyone else was performing on the show.

So, he decided to take on the Marvin Gaye classic “What’s Going On” and put his own spin on it for the audience.

In the video below, posted on September 13, 2017, Christian starts his performance slowly. The low grumble in his voice shines through and the audience starts screaming for him, only five seconds into the song!

As he continues singing, it’s clear he’s turning “What’s Going On” into a sort of love ballad. He sings bold notes as the piano complements his voice perfectly.

From this performance alone, there’s no doubt that this 17-year-old is a powerhouse and can make any song come alive on the stage.

So, what do you think of Christian’s version of this Marvin Gaye hit? Do you think it’s enough to soar to the top of the competition and get him through to the finals?
