America's Got Talent Wiki

The Cadence was a percussion group from Season 3 of America's Got Talent. It was eliminated in the Semifinals.


The Cadence, a band from Springfield, Missouri, is a high-energy percussion experience originally started in Icon Nightclub. The group has performed for audiences around the country with highlighted performances in the MLB All Star Game - Fan Fest, as well as for corporate events for Anheuser-Busch, Schnuck's, and even for Tulsa Drillers Minor League Baseball games.

The energy of the Cadence is only matched by the group's flexibility in performing anywhere and everywhere, with full stage production or just a couple guys on buckets. 1


The Cadence's audition in Episode 307 consisted of drumming on items such as buckets and bins. Although Sharon Osbourne voted "No", David Hasselhoff and Piers Morgan both voted "Yes", sending the group to the Vegas Round.

Vegas Round[]

The Cadence was one of the Music Acts in the Vegas Round. The group's performance in Episode 308 was not fully televised, but it consisted of performing a drumming routine with large buckets. The Cadence's audition was strong enough for the judges to include it in the Top 60 shortlist and to later send it to the Top 40 Quarterfinals in Episode 309.


The Cadence's Part 1 Quarterfinals performance in Episode 310 consisted of drumming on buckets and traditional drums to Michael Jackson's "Beat It." The group received enough votes to be sent to the Semifinals in Episode 311.


The Cadence's Part 1 Semifinals performance in Episode 314 consisted of striking over 90 drums (buckets, cymbals, snare drums, and more) to The Kinks' "You Really Got Me." The Cadence did not receive enough votes to be sent to the Top 10, eliminating the group from the competition in Episode 316 instead of Paul Salos.
