Aaralyn + Izzy of Kid Metal Act Murp Perform Original Song ‘Dog Poop’ on ‘America’s Got Talent’
The kid metal duo of Aaralyn and Izzy (also known as Murp) rocked yet another edition of ‘America’s Got Talent’ last night (July 23) with an original song titled ‘Dog Poop.’ For Murp’s third AGT performance — and first one on live TV — the show afforded them a massive production including pyro, a backing band and even a drum riser which was lowered from the ceiling.
If views on YouTube accurately represent the ‘America’s Got Talent’ audience, Murp are currently the most popular act on the show. Murp’s AGT debut performance of ‘Zombie Skin’ currently has over 14 million views and counting. Aaralyn and Izzy also racked up the numbers with last week’s performance of ‘Lullaby Crash,’ but the majority of AGT’s judges no longer seem to be on Murp’s side.
Murp’s performance of ‘Dog Poop’ on the stage of New York City’s famed Radio City Music Hall was preceded by a short video telling the story of Murp’s beginnings and how their ‘America’s Got Talent’ success has changed the lives of Aaralyn and Izzy, which included the brutal female vocalist stating that even her teachers want her autograph. Aaralyn started Murp’s third AGT gig in a flowery princess outfit sitting atop a swing. The first half of ‘Dog Poop’ mimicked ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ as Aaralyn sang clean vocals, but as Murp reached the hallway point of the original track, Aaralyn threw down her princess garb and marched confidently to center stage. Izzy and his drum kit were lowered from the ceiling as Aaralyn screamed her way through the rest of ‘Dog Poop’ with raw power.
Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown hasn’t been a Murp fan since the duo’s first AGT gig, and since, fellow judges Howard Stern and Heidi Klum have joined Brown in her sentiments. Stern was particularly rough on Murp, simply writing off the act as a “gimmick” and a “great joke.” However, comedian Howie Mandel still passionately supports Murp, flashing the devil horns and reminding judges that, ultimately, America will decide which act deserves the million-dollar prize.
Voting for this round of ‘America’s Got Talent’ is closed. To find out if the voting public chose Murp to advance in the competition, watch the results show on NBC tonight at 9PM ET. GO MURP!!!
