The group of eight to 18-year-olds performed an electrifying version of Panic! At The Disco's song "High Hopes."

The choir now has a one in 10 chance of winning a million dollars and securing a residency in Las Vegas.

They will be performing on AGT next Tuesday night on NBC at 8 PM.

The winner will be announced the following Wednesday.

If they win, they will be the first choir to ever win the competition.

One of the performers told NBC that's it's amazing to be on television.

"It feels great, amazing to be on television. People in Detroit keep saying, a lot of people don't really make it out, and we're just in awe and happy and blessed to be on TV."

Only five of the previous night's performers moved on to the Finals.
