Dolly Parton’s classic love triangular song “Jolene” has been covered by everyone from pop stars Olivia Newton-John, Miley Cyrus and Lil Nas X to alternative bands The White Stripes, The Sisters of Mercy and Strawberry Switchblade. In 2017, country singer Cam even released a flipped response track, “Diana,” telling the story from Jolyne’s point of view. But Dolly’s ’70s hit has never been as popular as “You Can Have Him, Jolene,” the new follow-up to America’s Got Talent performed this week by family country trio Chapel Hart.

“We were so inspired by the song ‘Jolene’ and we just love the storyline,” Chapel Hart vocalist Danica Hart said cheerfully. AGT Panel Tuesday. “However, we calculated that from 1973 to 2022 we could No still fight for the same person! So we decided to tell her, “You can just take it, Jolene!”

“Well, after the last song, I had time to think things over / Lots of tears, lots of beer, lots of wine. … I’m tired of second chances and these sad circumstances / He’s your problem, good luck keeping him home,” the cheeky ladies of Hart Chapel — Danica, her sister Devinn Hart, and their cousin Trea Swindle — girded themselves in their flawless three-part harmonies. “Oh, Jolene, you can take him because he doesn’t mean much to me. … When you think he’s in love, be sure to leave / Like he did to me.”

And the protagonist of Chapel Hart’s contemporary empowerment tune really got his happy ending, as well as a bit of a revenge-filled “Before He Lies.” “I took my keys and threw it out the door / I found a man who loves me and he will give me everything I need / What more can a woman ask for?” the women sang like they were alive AGT the audience went crazy.

“The energy here is amazing,” said host Terry Crews. “My God! Trust me, I needed you today. It was fantastic,” judge Simon Cowell admired.

Born in Mississippi and New Orleans, this trio was named one of CMT’s “Next Women of the Country” artists last year, and they released two independent albums and five singles, one of which “Jesus & Alcohol” even featured ZZ Top. Billy Gibbons on guitar and Debbie Allen in the video. Yet Chapel Hart was somehow left unsigned, which understandably surprised industry veteran Simon.

“We’ve been trying to break into Nashville for the last couple of years, but it’s been pretty hard when I think country music isn’t always like us,” explained Danica, who, like Devinn and Trea, is black. through her tears as Devinn sweetly wiped her face. To this, Simon stated, “Sometimes you just have to break down that door, and you might have just kicked the door down with that performance.” Judge Howie Mandel added: “Are you saying that country music is not like you? This one is yours win. Because you will be the original.

All of the show’s individual Gold Buzzers were used up a few weeks ago during this talent-filled season, which Simon and Heidi Klum lamented, saying they would have used their respective Gold Buzzers at Hart Chapel if they could. But there was a simple solution: after a quick meeting between Terry and all four judges, they unanimously decided to use their Group Golden Buzzer is about a country trio. (This was the only second time this happened in AGT story; Golden Buzzer was introduced last season in response to opera prodigy Victory Brinker.)

Confetti then rained down on the crying Danica, Devinn and Traya as they hugged the judges and high-fived them. “There are little girls in Poplarville, miss, who think it’s impossible, but we do it!” Trey proclaimed triumphantly.

It remains to be seen if Chapel Hart can win. America’s Got Talent, but after performing this dynamite number for one of network TV’s biggest audiences, they probably won’t be without a major record deal for long. As Nashville is thankfully becoming more open and inclusive – look out for the recent success of black country artists such as Mickey Guyton, Jimmy Allen, Kane Brown, Yola, Rhiannon Giddens, Allison Russell, Amethyst Kia, Breland, Valerie June et al – it’s like the Chapel. Finally it’s Hart’s time. And I think Dolly Parton herself would approve of that.

As for other notable performers on Tuesday, among them was creaky singer-songwriter Sam Cieri, whom Heidi described as “if Rod Stewart and John Mayer had a baby” (actually, I was thinking more of Lewis Capaldi/Michael McDonald in love child); Ballet After Dark, a troupe of attack survivors who find healing in dance; Ukrainian aerial gymnast Svetlana Rogozhina; viral folk artist Amanda Mammana, who uses music to overcome her speech impediment; second-generation circus performer Jack Knuth, who somehow convinced Simon to take part in a low-low stunt that could have failed. very crooked; as well as Freaks-esque Brits the Lazy Generation, who received applause from Simon after they splashed hot sauce in their eyes, scattered buttons all over the stage, and engaged in a pillow fight while being tasered. (Trust me, it was a lot of fun, but don’t try this at home. or across the pond.)

See you next week because America’s Got Talent Season 17 auditions are ongoing.
