Edon Pinchot Makes it to Next Round of America's Got Talent
Edon Pinchot, the 13 year old Orthodox Jewish singer/pianist has made it out of the audition rounds of America's Got Talent and into the live shows in New York.

Pinchot, who we first discovered in March, 2011, has been referred to as the Jewish Justin Bieber, but judge Sharon Osbourne sees someone else in Pinchot.

"He reminds me of a young Billy Joel" remarked Osbourne. "I think he did even better here than he did in his original audition" said radio host Howard Stern.

As we said in his first audition, we expect big things from Edon, and anything less than top 10 would surprise us. He's a wonderful talent and one of the few on AGT who can carry a show. Let's just make sure we get those votes in starting next week.

Below is a video of Edon's performance on America's Got Talent from Tuesday evening:


Here is a video of Pinchot singing "Count On Me" by Bruno Mars:
