Tim Hockenberry Delivers Standout Version of ‘You Are So Beautiful’ on ‘America’s Got Talent’

Tim Hockenberry

The new season of ‘America’s Got Talent‘ is merely two days old and it’s already making a splash, from the critical raves Howard Stern earned as a judge to some of the actual talent America is showcasing on the boob tube. One of last night’s (May 15) standouts was Tim Hockenberry, a middle-aged gent from upstate New York who delivered a gritty and emotionally impactful rendition of Joe Cocker’s ‘You Are So Beautiful.’ It was, in a word, beautiful.

Granted, the song is inherently gritty and raw, and it was right in Hockenberry’s wheelhouse. He sat behind a keyboard stand and tapped away while singing in his rugged, raspy voice. He’s proof that young, cute and precocious kids are not the only hopefuls to win our hearts and compete on ‘AGT.’

From one performance, it sounds like Tim Hockenberry is the real deal. While we were wondering if he would be a serious or silly performer based on his bright paisley print (and pink!) shirt, he surprised us and had us in his corner immediately. Go Tim!
