America’s Got Talent season 16 aired its first semifinals, live on Tuesday, August 31. The episode featured some power-packed performances from semifinalists Jimmie Herrod, Aidan Bryant and Gina Brillon among others.
Despite the semifinalists putting on their best performances, it was Jimmie who managed to grab the most attention from AGT fans, thanks to his scintillating act.
As mesmerized as fans were with his performance, many weren’t aware of the song he sang. If you’re one of the curious ones, we’ve got you covered right here!

What song did Jimmie Herrod sing on AGT?
For those still wondering, Jimmie sang his rendition of Pink’s song Glitter In the Air. The 2010 track is a part of the singer’s album, Funhouse.
The track is accompanied by soft piano and pop drum beats.
Glitter In The Air lyrics talk about the power of love and being able to take a leap of faith when one is in love.
Jimmie got on stage dressed in an all-pink suit, wearing a white shirt with leaves designed underneath. He sang his heart out and at the end of his act, the studio audience let out collective gasps, and the judges were equally impressed.
