During Tuesday night’s edition of “America’s Got Talent,” contestant Benicio Bryant delivered a powerful rendition of Brandi Carlile’s already-powerful “The Joke.”
On the heels of the performance, the song is making big gains on the US iTunes sales chart.
“The Joke” was well outside the Top 100 prior to Tuesday’s broadcast. As of 11:30PM ET Tuesday night, it is already #63 (and rising) on the all-genre chart.
Bryant is certainly familiar with “The Joke.” The young artist has even performed the song with Carlile, including once on an edition of “Late Night With Seth Meyers.”
“The Joke” is the second song to make a big iTunes jump after exposure on the current season of “America’s Got Talent.” Calum Scott’s “You Are The Reason” (both the original and the version with Leona Lewis) made gains after being featured during last week’s season fourteen premiere.
