The premiere of America’s Got Talent is set to air on Tuesday, and you could be remembering Archie Williams for quite some time.
What do we know about him? Before he even starts singing “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” he does his part to share his powerful story. This is a man who spent a significant portion of his life (37 years) imprisoned for a crime that he did not commit. DNA evidence later found him innocent, but there is no way to make up for all of the time that he lost.
This audition, and this performance in front of the crowd, is his big moment. He’s a strong singer who performs with so much heart and character. You really get the sense through this that he has lived a full, difficult life, but is still determined to try to find whatever light at the end of it that he can. The easily loves him, the judges embrace him, and there is a chance for him to move forward.

Is he going to be the sort of performer who goes far in the competition? On the surface, we don’t really see any other outcome for him. This show always does a good job of connecting you to at least some of its performers — singers are always going to be able to achieve some sort of bond with the audience since the craft itself is so relatable. There are people from all over the world who communicate through the language of music; it is a way to channel feelings that you don’t know how to say otherwise. Archie delivers this a million times over, and we’re so curious to learn where this show goes from him next.
