Triple Threat, a singing trio from Benton known in Arkansas for its catchy Razorback-themed music videos, wowed the judges on America's Got Talent on Tuesday night.

The group, which consists of 21-year-olds Caleb Conrad, Tyler Davis and Will Richey, sang MKTO's song "Classic" on the popular NBC program.

The performance, viewable at left, drew widespread support from the live audience, standing ovations from the show's four judges and a mid-song interjection from host Nick Cannon that "these guys are good." Watch video of the appearance in the player at left.

Each judge voted yes on the audition episode, the season's first, which means Triple Threat will return for another performance. Whoever ultimately wins the talent competition will earn a $1 million prize.

Triple Threat previously drew statewide attention with its Razorback music "Never Yield," a theme-song based on UA's athletic slogan, and "Hey Grude," a parody of "Hey Jude" that unsuccessfully attempted to lure former NFL coach Jon Gruden to Arkansas.

Each has more than 100,000 views on Youtube. The video of the America's Got Talent performance, described by the show as a song from a "beautifully nerdy boy band," racked up nearly 22,000 YouTube views in less than a day.

    I simply as of late set myself free by figuring out how to trade and anyone can do this the extent that I'm concerned you simply need to go to the correct spot. Look at the site Emini S&P Trading Secret, simply Google them you ought to have the capacity to discover them, these gentlemen are truly doing it right and make you ask why everyone isn't similar to them. You can make $2000 a week trading everything you need to do is figure out how, on the off chance that I can do it anyone can.
