Gay ‘America’s Got Talent’ Contestant Brian Justin Crum Amazes Crowd With Queen Cover

It’s situations like this for which the phrase “yas queen” was invented. A singer named Brian Justin Crum knocked it out of the park with a performance of “Somebody to Love” on America’s Got Talent.

The 28-year-old from San Diego brought his mother with him to the audition, and explained that she’d supported his career ambitions. From there, he nailed every note.

At this point you probably know how these things go: everyone in the audience got to their feet, including the judges.

Brian, who is openly gay, also had the support of his boyfriend Rumer, who tweeted “my boo is killing it!!!” It’s not Brian’s first time before an audience; he’s previously worked on Broadway with Wicked and Next to Normal. But now he’s managed to get his foot in the door of the Simon Cowell ecosystem — will that machine chew him up, or will he ride his newfound fame to ongoing success? Let’s watch and find out.
