John Hetlinger shocked all the judges away with his impressive screeching, including Simon Cowell, but Drowning Pool themselves were always going to be the definitive judges and he’s got a thumbs up from them.
“Shout out to the 82 year old dude that sang ‘Bodies’ on America’s Got Talent. You are welcome to join us on stage anytime,” Drowning Pool wrote on their Facebook page.
They also spread compliments through the comments writing, “We think it’s badass! Way to go John.”
In something completely unrelated, someone commented that they should do a collaboration with Slipknot and the band agreed. “Call up Corey,” they wrote.
Maybe, we could get Drowning Pool, Slipknot and John all sharing a stage together. Wouldn’t that be something?
Drowning Pool are heading to Australia next month for their first ever tour here. No word yet on whether John will be joining them but it would be an excellent idea.
