Loren Allred Performs in AGT: Fantasy League Early Release
Allred is best known for being the voice behind the song “Never Enough” from the movie The Greatest Showman. In 2022, the singer competed on Britain’s Got Talent, receiving a Golden Buzzer and making it to the Finals.
For her first performance on AGT: Fantasy League, Allred performed a new arrangement of “Never Enough” on Simon Cowell’s team. The audience loved it enough to vote her through to the Semifinals, which kick off on Monday night.
In an early release clip from the next episode, Allred can be seen performing “Over the Rainbow.” The song was originally sung by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz, but Allred’s performance sounds similar to a famous version by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.
Allred belted out the inspiring song, holding some incredible notes as the audience held up their phone lights. All four judges gave her a standing ovation for the performance.
What Did the Judges Think of the Performance?
After Allred’s performance, Cowell called it “a masterclass,” adding, “That’s how you do it.” Meanwhile, Heidi Klum told the singer, “You were giving us all the feels. And you just sounded so beautiful.”
Mel B told Allred that her voice is “to die for, literally.” She added that Allred can sing anything, explaining that if she was her mentor, she would have chosen a different song. Cowell had a snarky response, saying to the former Spice Girl, “What, like ‘Wannabe’?”
Host Terry Crews tried to move things along, asking Howie Mandel what he thought. The judge said he believed that “America is gonna love it.” It’s up to the audience to decide whether Allred deserves a spot in the Fantasy League Finals.
