So today we’ve got the privilege of watching an 82 year old gentleman by the name of John Hetlinger, wow the audience with his particular choice of song for a recent episode of America’s Got Talent. You would generally think that an octogenarian would choose something from a by-gone era to sing, but you’d be wrong if you were referring to John.
He’d had a career as an aerospace engineer and a navy pilot, but John reckoned that America’s Got Talent was the perfect place to show the World just how much he enjoys a little bit of Drowning Pool – Let The Bodies Hit The Floor. The crowd obviously loved it, but unfortunately I don’t think the judges were too keen.
What can we learn from John? Well, that you shouldn’t stereotype people and also that you should do whatever the hell makes you happiest – even if that is singing a hard rock song on a game show.
