America's Got Talent: Former NSYNC Opening Act Delivers Chilling Performance

Manuel told the judges (Howie Mandel, Mel B., Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell) that he was signed to a record label when he was a teenager, but things didn't work out.

"America's Got Talent" contestant Johnny Manuel simply slayed with his rendition of Houston's "I Have Nothing", a vocally-demanding and complex song only the fiercest of competitors would attempt. "I hope what can happen is that I'm finally able to be who I am and present myself and my music to the world".

Getting a standing ovation and great praise from the judges, new host Tyra Banks even said to the camera that "Whitney hears you, honey". "I mean, as a kid, I thought I was going to take off and see the stars, and obviously it didn't happen that way".
