Broken Roots Duo Performs For The First Time Together During AGT Audition

The duo of Broken Roots impressed the AGT judges with their Bon Jovi cover during their very first performance together.


Joey Kar and Austin Edwards both have a law enforcement background. And that is what ultimately brought them together.

Before the audition, Austin shared that “In our jobs, we see a lot of things that, quite frankly, we don’t want other people to see and our outlet became music.” The two men were both performing as solo artists in the same locations.

When they took notice of one another, they decided to combine their talents and created Broken Roots. But the biggest surprise of all is that they have never performed on stage together.

Joey said, “Literally, we met six months ago and this will be the first time we will play together, ever.” These men had nothing to worry about because their passionate performance of ‘Dead Or Alive’ from Bon Jovi was an absolute hit.

“It's all the same, only the names will change
Everyday, it seems we're wastin' away
Another place where the faces are so cold
I drive all night just to get back home
I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive”

After the performance, the judges were in agreement that Broken Roots deserved to move on. They truly put their heart and soul into this song and it showed on stage. Now, the duo has another chance to fight for the winner’s title on America’s Got Talent and claim the one million dollar prize.
