With the release of World War Z, this summer is all about zombies. But going to the movies isn’t the only way to experience the culture of the undead — in fact, you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your living room. On Wednesday night’s episode of America’s Got Talent, six-year-old singer Aaralyn O’Neil and her nine-year-old brother Isaiah (“Izzy”) shocked viewers with their original song “Zombie Skin.”
When the youthful sibling duo walked onto the stage, the judges and audience let out a collective “aww.” Aaralyn looked the picture of innocence in her polka dot party dress and bright pink tights. Judge Howard Stern compared them to the Partridige Family and said he couldn’t wait to hear their “sweet music.” Little did anyone suspect how deceiving appearances could be.
With Izzy on the drums, Aaralyn opened her mouth to sing their original song…and out came the appalling sound of screamo metal. Audience members were quite literally jolted into their seats, and Heidi Klum looked terrified by the screaming voice of the angelic-looking child, as she sang “Everyone listen to me. I am a zombie.” Judge Melanie Brown summed it up best when she said, “Scary Spice is officially scared.”
With the exception of Mel B, the judges rather enjoyed the shocking experience, and the adorable metal kids made it through to the Las Vegas round (although Heidi Klum was set on meeting their parents, demanding to know, “What is going on in your house?”). We are similarly intrigued and look forward to hearing a few more original songs from Aaralyn & Izzy.
