Why Does Kristen Cruz’s AGT Performance of ‘I See Red’ Sound Familiar?

Nineteen-year-old Kristen Cruz blew the Judges away with her cover of the track during Auditions.

Kristen Cruz performed one of the night’s most memorable Auditions during Week 4 of America’s Got Talent Season 17.

The 19-year-old TikTok star showcased her powerful vocals with a cover of indie pop band Everybody Loves an Outlaw’s “I See Red.”

“I want to sing,” Cruz stated. “I don’t want to give up and stop trying. [I want] to inspire people, to show them that they don’t have to be anything other than themselves. I’m not required to be the industry standard.”

Each of the Judges voted “Yes,” and the Texas native officially introduced us to one of our new favorite songs of the year. And there’s a reason why “I See Red” might sound familiar to some of you.
