Cadets watch "In The Stairwell" take America's Got Talent stage

Posted: Updated:

The Air Force Academy's all-male a capella group "In The Stairwell" performed live Tuesday night on KOAA 5 in the semi finals of America's Got Talent.

They've been getting a lot of love from the Air Force Academy who threw them another watch party for their classmates to watch the big show.

During the performance, the Arnold Hall food court was lit up and filled up with energy and excitement from cadets cheering on their very own classmates.

They've walked these halls, they've eaten dinner here and Tuesday night, once again, they are working to win over America's heart in uniform. 

They wowed their classmates by singing "Castle on the Hill" by Ed Sheeran. 

"In The Stairwell" was originally formed by a group of freshman cadets all the way back in 2004. They got their name singing in the only place they could, in the dorm stairwells.

Tuesday night's performance even brought in a few laughs with what Mel B called their cheesy choreography. 

"It's very true to them, so i think that's why everyone can kind of giggle as we all watch because we watch and we know them and we go to school with them, people that we're in squad with or pass in the hallway and it's just very true, it's not staged, it's just very them," Meghan Pattillo, an Air Force Academy cadet said.

"I think it's cool, I think it's a unique opportunity to showcase a little bit about what we're about and what we do on a day to day basis, it's pretty neat to be able to tell people in the world hey, we're still people too and we're still trying to do our best and have a good time," Remington Hoyer, an Air Force Academy cadet said.

Even the toughest critic, Simon, said he thinks he will see these guys in the finals next week after all of the judges gave them a standing ovation.

11 performers took the stage on Tuesday night, they are all fighting for just five final spots.

All of us get to vote to choose the top three performers, the judges will pick one and there's an instant save for one group.
