MetaPhysic Synthetic Media Makes Simon Cowell Sing in a LEAKED ‘AGT’ Audition
Simon Cowell has officially taken the America’s Got Talent stage… sort of. Within a leaked audition, MetaPhysic Synthetic Media creates an artificial intelligence version of Cowell singing “You’re the Inspiration” by Chicago.
On June 6, America’s Got Talent released an early audition of artificial intelligence group, MetaPhysic Synthetic Media. Within the video, Metaphysic company owners Tom Graham and Chris Ume take the stage and explain that their company uses artificial intelligence to create hype real content. To show off their skills, they brought AGT alum Daniel Emmet on the stage. Daniel took the stage in a white button down shirt and jeans, similar to Cowell’s on-show attire.
Simon Cowell Sings on the America’s Got Talent Stage
It was clear none of the judges could predict what was going to happen next. Cowell called their act “mysterious” before wishing them luck. Soon after the group set up, Daniel transformed into Cowell in place of the AGT logo on the stage background. He then sang “You’re the Inspiration” by Chicago.
The audience went absolutely wild for this group, while Cowell could barely look at the screen. By the end of the song, the judges gave the artificial intelligence group a standing ovation.
“I’ve always said is there such a thing as a perfect contestant, a great singer who looks incredible, we just found them,” Cowell said.
The judges praised this group for bringing something entirely new to the series. They specified that MetaPhysic Synthetic Media’s talent comes not only from Daniel’s singing, but from the artificial intelligence as well.
What Did MetaPhysic Synthetic Media Do Before AGT?
Before ever stepping foot on the AGT stage, Metaphysic began creating the unimaginable with their artificial intelligence. The company markets themself for the creation of realistic looking deep fake celebrities/actors. MetaPhysic markets their technology as cost effective, as well as filled with endless variation and editing possibilities.
At this time, their advanced technology is typically used in advertisements. Within each advertisement, artificial intelligence is used to create the appearance of a celebrity, or super star, using a normal person. In their most recent advertisement, the group brought 1971 character El Chavo back to life for a Dish Network commercial.
