LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A southern Kentucky man has advanced to the next round on NBC's America's Got Talent.

Jimmy Rose of Bell County made his second appearance July 16 during an elimination round. The Marine Corps veteran is a native of Pineville.

Rose made it through the preliminary round on a show that aired July 9. On Tuesday night's show, Howard Stern gave Rose the good news that he survived the  elimination round during a brief appearance.
