Sad Clown Sets Suitcase On Stage, But Simon Can’t Stop Grinning When Singer Belts Power Ballad

One thing is for sure: there are plenty of talented and memorable singers on this season of America’s Got Talent.

Viewers simply can’t get enough of the reality show’s music performances, particularly from the younger performers. Little Angelica Hale recently blew the judges away with the unbelievably powerful voice that emerged from her 9-year-old self. Guest judge Chris Hardwick even gave her his Golden Buzzer in the July 18, 2017 first Judge Cuts round.

But there are still plenty of singers left to see this season — like Puddles Pity Party.

When he initially auditioned, the sad clown singer surprised the judges with his distinctive and unusual outfit, as well as his downtrodden persona. But they were completely floored when he sang Sia’s “Chandelier.”

Now, Puddles is back with his Judge Cuts performance, which has been released by America’s Got Talent as a preview several days ahead of the episode’s July 25, 2017 airing.

“You were very good the first time we saw you, but you were very sad. And you still look sad. But you are happy to be here, though?” Simon asked before Puddles started his performance. The clown gave a silent, tentative nod, making the audience erupt into laughter and clapping.

Once again, the sad clown’s choice of song is perfectly fitting. This time around, he sings “All By Myself,” one of the most quintessentially lonely power ballads ever written.

Puddles’ shtick might seem silly, but his talent is completely serious.
