Linkin Bridge made its first strong impression a few weeks ago when they sang “Over The Rainbow” via an a capella arrangement.

They followed that with their take on “Free Bird.”

This time around, inside the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, the group went with "Always On My Mind," a song choice that Simon Cowell didn’t totally agree with.

"I’m excited right now, because from the first time I saw you, I really, really liked you. And there’s something about you."

This was Howie Mandel’s take on the performance:

“I loved the harmony, I loved the sound. This is so weird as one man looking into the eyes of four men, [but] I only have one thing to say to you directly from my heart: You guys are beautiful.”

And Melanie Brown:

"Your strongest point is your harmonies. The way that your voices blend together, it makes me melt. I loved it. I really did."
