Metal Choir Wows ‘AGT’ Judges With Haunting Rendition of Britney Spears’s ‘Toxic’

This past week’s episode of “America’s Got Talent,” was a spooky one.

The group, which is named the Dremeka Choir, considers itself the only metal choir in the world. They went on debut their performance with a guttural rendition of the opera classic “O Fortuna.”

Judges Howie Mandel, Simon Cowell, Sofia Vergara, and Heidi Klum looked alert, with Mandell leaning over to a stunned Klum to call the performance “scary.”

“Ooh. ‘The Omen!'” joked Cowell, referencing the 1976 horror movie as the red-and-black dressed choir made dramatic facial expressions and spread their arms wide.

“Something else must happen, that can’t be it!” said Klum, just as the lights began to flash and a metal version of Britney Spears’s “Toxic” began to play.

But Klum was not a fan. She quickly hit her red ‘X’ buzzer (which is a ‘no’ on this show) to which Cowell looked over at her, flabbergasted.

“I love them,” he said to Vergara, who danced along to the haunting piece.

Once the group finished the song, the audience paused for a moment before bursting into applause. The judges went back and forth for a moment before sharing their decisions.

“It was like demons, in a choir, singing the song from ‘The Omen,’ then going into Britney Spears,” said Cowell. “It was so fantastically creepy, but I’m all for going to the dark side occasionally, so I get it.”

And while Vergara admitted that she had been “dreading” the “unexpected performance,” she quickly changed her tune.

“Suddenly, I was like, in some kind of movie with dragons or vampires or something,” the actor admitted. “I thought it was very spectacular and creative.”

Klum said that she had hit her buzzer because she didn’t “particularly love” the number.

“I don’t think that people necessarily would buy a ticket to come and watch this,” she said.

So when it came time to vote, Cowell and Vergara were quick yeses, while Klum voted no.

“The queen of Halloween gave you a no!” joked Mandel. “Nothing thrills me more than to give you your third yes.”

And as the group walked off stage, Cowell joked that they could come back dressed as monsters for the next round.
