This is a choir called New Directions. And last night, they beat a diiiiifferent choir called New Directions: The season premiere of America’s Got Talent topped Glee in the ratings last night, averaging around 12 million viewers to Glee‘s 9.

Did you watch AGT last night, PopWatchers? Who are your early favorites?
