NEW YORK - A pair of Kansas City street performers shined during their live performance Monday night on America's Got Talent.
The father-daughter duo of Maurice and Shanice Hays is one of the 12 acts who performed in the first live show.
They sang Faith Hill's "There You'll Be".
All three judges praised their performance and said they hope America votes them on to the next round.
The two make weekly performances on the Country Club Plaza and wowed audiences in their St. Louis audition for the show, which aired in May.

Monday’s live show is a change of venue for the live performances this season, moving from Los Angeles to New Jersey so Judge Howard Stern can be closer to his radio job in New York City.
Not only did they move locations for Stern - the radio shock jock is making $20 million a year from America's Got Talent. Still, the other judges say the move is a good thing for Stern.
"East coast people aren't jaded,” said Judge Howie Mandel. “They don't get a lot of TV tapings, as many as we do in LA. That excitement level and that electricity transforms the show into a much more fun, energetic, bigger show."
On Tuesday night's show, some of those first dozen acts will be eliminated.
