Kevin Skinner, an unemployed farmer from Mayfield, Kentucky, impressed the judges of America’s Got Talent last night with his rendition of If Tomorrow Never Comes by Garth Brooks.

During his audition, the 35-year-old revealed that he used to catch chickens for a living.

I’m not much of a country music fan but this guy’s got real talent. Piers Morgan said: “That was one of the most emotional, powerful performances I’ve seen in a long time.”

    absolutely awesome! I saw this on TV and it took my breath away…this guy has a real talent! It's so sad seeing people judge so quickly based on appearance…=/

    Let me tell you…Chicken catching is a real hard job. It isnt for the any wuss to do. You have to be very tough. And I bet he has large knots on his hands to prove it. YOu have to grab 8 chickens from a cage and put into another cage as fast as you can. YOu get scratches and blood and poop all over you and you do it at night!!!! So all thos dummies laughing were just showing their stupidy of a hard working person.
