The World's Best, CBS talent competition show featuring Faith Hill as a judge, premiered after the 2019 Super Bowl and hands down the best moment was when Enkh-Erdene (aka the "Mongolian Cowboy") took the stage to sing George Strait's 1983 hit "Amarillo By Morning."
Erdene doesn't speak English. but that didn't stop him from delivering a flawless version of the country classic. He briefly interviews with host James Corden before starting to sing and has to use an interpreter to communicate. Which is why his rendition of a country song is so shocking to the entire crowd. There's a reason his audition video has over 7 million views on YouTube.
The camera pans to Hill, the panel's lone country singer, when Erdene begins singing and her shocked reaction is priceless. Hill, along with fellow judges Drew Barrymore and RuPaul Charles, gave Erdene a standing ovation. It's truly remarkable that someone who can't speak the English language was able to sing this song so eloquently on the stage. The camera pans around to people in the audience and everyone is stunned, one woman even claims that he's giving her goosebumps.
Erdene first turned heads on Mongolia's Got Talent a couple of years prior when he performed the Strait song and showed off his impeccable Elvis impersonation. There's no doubt that he's an incredibly talented singer that no doubt has more covers up his sleeve.
The World's Best features talent from across the globe and from multiple genres. The show also features 50 experts from across the world and from various fields of entertainment.
Faith Hill is the latest country music star to serve as a judge on a talent competition. Luke Bryan is currently on the American Idol judging panel and Blake Shelton is still a coach on NBC's The Voice.
