Video: 'Jewish Bieber' Wows Again

Edon Pinchot, the young Orthodox crooner who was breathlessly dubbed the “Jewish Justin Bieber” by the National Conference of Synagogue Youth (NCSY), has continued to shine on “America’s Got Talent.”

After sailing through the Vegas round with his rendition of David Guetta’s “Without You,” he dazzled the crowd last night with a performance of Guetta’s “Titanium” at the live quarterfinal show.

“Did you get a standing ovation at your bar mitzvah?” judge Howie Mandel gushed. “That’s terrific.”

Even Howard Stern, who reportedly doubted Edon in the earlier rounds, seemed taken with the 14-year-old straight-A student from Chicago. “What I love about you, you’re not a showbiz kid,” he said. “You’re just humble and nice and America is going to fall in love with you.”

Go Edon, go! The Shmooze hopes to be rooting for you in the finals.
