Air Force Singers Wow Audience With Pop Song, But Refuse To Stop When Judge Gives Them A Red ‘X’

On Tuesday, June 13, 2017, a group of aspiring Air Force leaders stepped onto the America’s Got Talent stage to do something incredible.

In The Stairwell formed in 2004 at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. When they first started, they weren’t allowed to sing in their dorms where they lived, but they were allowed to get together in the stairwells to practice.

These days, you can tell that they are getting their rehearsals in, because when they start to sing One Direction’s “Drag Me Down,” the audience goes wild.

The judges are in awe too. Well, all but one.

Howie, for one reason or another, isn’t sold on the act, and he gives them a big red “X.” Simon and the rest of the judges simply cannot understand why he wouldn’t want to see these fine young men perform on their stage again.

Have you ever seen In The Stairwell perform before? I had no idea that the men training at the Air Force Academy had such lofty aspirations in addition to serving our country. They really are go-getters, aren’t they?

I suppose you really do have to go above and beyond in all areas of life in order to get into such a prestigious institution as theirs.

Now, what could have possibly been going through Howie’s mind? Do you think that these young men deserve to go onto the next round?
