Bearded Queen Slays ‘America’s Got Talent’ Audition, But What Happened Next Is Truly Amazing

Screen Shot 2015-06-12 at 6.44.18 PMWe love a bearded queen. Is there any better way of saying “thanks but no thanks” to superficial gender expectations than by mixing masculine and feminine into a beautiful conglomeration of yas queen?

We also love a queen with comedy chops. On a recent episode of America’s Got Talent, we got both when Kentucky’s own Scott Heierman took the stage and gave an undeniably fabulous performance.

And here’s the best part — Scott predicted his schtick would go over well, but he never could have expected to gain a whole new fan base of kids after the segment aired.

The mother of a nine-year-old boy even posted a video of her son imitating Scott — heels and all. Another little girl dressed in pink eyebrows and beard after she saw the clip. So much yes.

Watch the audition below:

And here’s an awkward local news segment which includes one of Scott’s new young fans. Keep in mind that this is on local Kentucky news, which is pretty amazing:

Hope is alive!
