Blue Velvet was a vocal trio act from Season 1 of America's Got Talent. It was eliminated in the audition round.

BackgroundEdit

Retro lounge act Blue Velvet plays the music of performers like Burt Bacharach, Frank Sinatra, the Fifth Dimension, ABBA, the Carpenters, Dionne Warwick, and even the Human League.

The band formed in 1996, while founder Kevin Cavanaugh was writing and directing a variety dinner theatre show in Kentwood, Michigan called Expect the Unexpected. A last minute addition to the show featured Cavanaugh’s song “Out To Lunch,” staged by him with two female vocalists styled after Doris Day. After the show, the trio decided to launch their own act as Blue Velvet. As of 2014, the group also includes singers Normandie Wilson and Peggy Sue. [1]

AuditionEdit

Blue Velvet's audition in Episode 101 consisted of singing its name in a high register. Piers Morgan, Brandy Norwood, and David Hasselhoff all buzzed the act. All three judges voted "No," eliminating the act from the competition.

TriviaEdit

  • Blue Velvet was the first act that Brandy Norwood and David Hasselhoff buzzed as well as voted "No" to.
  • It was the first act to receive three "No" votes.
  • It was the first vocal group whose audition was televised on America's Got Talent.
