Wrongly Convicted Man Archie Williams Stuns With 'America's Got Talent' Performance - Watch!

America’s Got Talent fans are buzzing about Archie Williams.

The singer, who stunned with his performance of “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” during the auditions, returned to TV on Tuesday night (August 11) for the quarterfinals of the hit series.

If you didn’t know, Archie was wrongly imprisoned for over three decades. In 1983, at the age of 22, he was convicted of aggravated rape and attempted murder in Louisiana. Fingerprint evidence did not match his own, and witnesses testified that he was at his own home the night of the incident. However, he was sentenced to life in prison at Louisiana State Penitentiary without the possibility of parole.

During the performance, he sang Stevie Wonder‘s “Love’s in Need of Love Today” in front of judges Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Sofia Vergara as well as guest judge Kelly Clarkson at the Universal Studios Hollywood lot amid the pandemic.

For the first time, AGT had a virtual audience featuring audio and video of fans watching live.

“Thank you so much for that, your story is an incredible testimony, it’s powerful. I don’t want your story to overshadow [your singing]. Your tone is so cool. It was incredible to hear such a great storyteller. Those are my favorite kind of singers. You did a really great job,” Kelly said.

“You deserve this more than anyone,” Sofia said.

“I can feel all the pain you went through. It couldn’t be more perfect,” said Heidi.
