Episode 7 of the latest season of the popular U.S. talent variety show America’s Got Talent featured an orthodox, yarmulke bearing singer/pianist who rocked the stage, earning unanimous approval from the judges, who voted him into the next round of the competition in Las Vegas.

The performer, Edon Pinchot is 14 years old, and was referred to by The National Conference of Synagogue Youth as ‘the Jewish Justin Bieber’ in a promotional video that he filmed for the organization.

He has posted tens of videos on YouTube covering artists from Pink to Leonard Cohen and picked One Republic’s ‘Good Life’ for his AGT audition. The audience responded enthusiastically while his father looked on fondly from back stage.

“You sang with such emotion” said judge Sharon Osbourne, “I just want to see more.” Howard Stern, the Jewish radio host who joined the show this season told Edan, “you are so talented, you are so gifted, it’s a yes from me.”

You can watch the video of Edon’s performance below.

    His name is Edon, not Edan. And he’s 14, not 13. Just saying.

    • Sarah

      He’s in my class and his name is spelled “Edan”. Trust me, I’ve known him all my life and our families carpooled together. They spell the name as “Edon” on the show so that people don’t pronounce it as “E-DAN.”

    he is talented i dont care what his religion is! this boy has a talent of singing a song and making it his own. he’s polite, humble, and seems to be of just good moral carachter and that’s what this world needs is more humble talent and good boys in the media to set examples that it’s cool to behave and not have all kinds of baby mama drama and not show the world your underwear. talent is talent no matter where you’re from

      He used to say he’s not, that he is half Jewish, half Italian. But his mother and his father are both Jewish it really doesn’t matter what he says

      from wikipedia

      Stern was born on January 12, 1954, into a family that lived in Jackson Heights, Queens, in New York City.[3] Both his parents, Bernard and Ray (née Schiffman) Stern, are from Jewish families, from Austria-Hungary and Poland, respectively

    What a wonderful voice, a real gift. And he seems so polite and sweet. A credit to his parents.

    I’m sure he wouldn’t give up his heritage and flit around with a non-Jewish girlfriend.

    He’s pretty good. Thumbs up for him.
