It’s summer. . .  and that means the newest season of America’s Got Talent is bringing all of the wackiest, most talented, and straight-up strangest acts from all over the world to your living room. From grandfathers to little kids to bodybuilders, just about anyone–and everyone–ends up in front of the four judges.

This year, In the Stairwell–a male a capella group from the Air Force Academy–tried their luck at stardom with a rendition of One Direction’s “Drag Me Down.” Clad in their uniforms, the cadets broke out dance moves and searing harmonies that had the entire audience swooning.

Well. Not the entire audience.

We won’t spoil the surprise for you. . . you’ve gotta see it for yourself. (Keep an eye out for Simon Cowell’s reaction to Howie! It will make your day.)
