The Wright Kids yet again

Baruch Wright of The Wright Kids on Americas Got TalentThe Wright Kids, young bluegrassers on their way to becoming pop stars, have made it to the finals on America’s Got Talent. They were voted into the top 10 based on their performance last week, and will appear again on tonight’s (9/17) show where they hope to continue moving towards the $1,000,000 top prize.

As we have mentioned in previous posts, the show’s producers chose this charming bluegrass trio based on their auditions (playing guitar, mandolin and bass), but have chosen to give them cutesy pop songs to sing on television.

Here is a YouTube clip of them from last week’s show, doing a glitzy version of Rockin’ Robin. can find the kids tonight on NBC at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT), with voting online or by phone begins at the end of the show.

Online voting is enabled until 5:00 a.m. (ET) Thursday morning, and phone votes will be accepted for two hours after the show goes off in each time zone.
