‘Jewish Justin Bieber’ takes ‘America’s Got Talent’


Edon Pinchot is the “Jewish Justin Bieber,” and we aren’t even cool enough to make this nickname up (NCSY did).

Last night’s episode of “America’s Got Talent” featured Edon Punchot, a 13-year-old kippah-wearing orthodox kid, who rocked the stage with an awesome rendition of One Republic’s “Good Life.” It earned him a ticket to AGT’s next round in Las Vegas and praises from judges Howie Mandel, Howard Stern and Sharon Osbourne.

Much like Bieber, Pinchot has been recording his own cover versions of songs, between saying the Shema and preparing for his Bar Mitzvah.
