Syracuse Natives Julia Goodwin and Jonah Smith Move Into Live Shows on ‘America’s Got Talent’


Then there were two. 16-year-old Julia Goodwin of Baldwinsville and Syracuse native Jonah Smith are the only contestant left representing central New York on ‘America’s Got Talent.’  Their fate is now in the hands of the viewers as they moves into the live rounds at Radio City Music Hall next week.  They’ll have some stiff competition in the singing category that also includes country singer Emily West.


Smith overcame a last minute SNAFU when his drummer backed out. Luckily he found a replacement and they sounded like they’ve been playing together for years.
