PASADENA, CA: Dreaming of being named one of the world’s biggest stars, J-Pop boy band Travis Japan joined Season 17 of “America’s Got Talent” to show off their exceptional talents. From singing and dancing to performing acrobatics, the talented members of this J-Pop group do it all.
After wowing the judges and the audience during the auditions, Travis Japan managed to earn a place in the semi-finals. Hoping to recreate the magic, the boy band took to the stage in their eye-catching silver outfits and charming smiles. As the group prepared to perform on “Party Up Like Crazy,” they ran into some technical issues. Thanks to the poor sound system and microphones, the audience and judges couldn’t catch the first few seconds of their performance. Unfazed by the technical glitch, the band continued their performance but ran into another obstacle, Howie Mandel’s buzzer. The famous comedian buzzed at the group because he was too confused by the chaos on stage. Fortunately, the other “AGT” judges – Simon Cowell, Sofia Vergara and Heidi Klum, gave the group the chance to finish their performance.

Another fan commented on the YouTube music video of their performance with, “Show Must Go On! Kudos to them for continuing to dance and sing when the buzzer goes off. It’s a shame their charm didn’t resonate with Howie, but these are people who could put on a much better performance. I would love to see them on stage next! Simon’s words are all I have to say, love you TravisJapan!”

Another fan shared, “Most American audiences don’t listen to Jpop. I literally can’t hear a fucking word they sing because AGT’s sound system is so bad. #AGT.” “Travis Japan Mic and audio didn’t work like other contestants so hopefully it can have another chance. (Their dancing and sparkly jackets looked beautiful as before) #AGT #TravisJapan,” one fan said . “Travis Japan looked like they had mic issues. And they were nervous, of course. But I know they can sing better. I know Travis Japan’s performance is nice. I hope they will have the last chance to play Please vote for Travis Japan！ #AGT #TravisJapan,” a fan chimed in.
“It’s a shame that their mics didn’t seem to be working properly which would make me nervous too and bother me. They shouldn’t get buzzed about that. They were well in sync and it’s a real shame that their audio production is bad that they may not do it to the best of their ability/potential. It’s very hard to sing and dance at the same time live and they are brave to do it on the agt stage. I look forward to supporting them at future and I’m glad they have to promote themselves on agt,” a fan added. “It’s a shame they had an audio issue but still a decent performance. They shouldn’t have been buzzed for technical difficulties. Yet they were still professional,” echoed one fan.
