"We're the group that's here to have a good time," said Grown But Young, a band from Wellington, FL. "We have that party sound; we have that get up and jump sound; we have the dancers. We're not just a single act. We're bringing everything to the table!"

Though Robert Dover, host of American Equestrians Got Talent, is only allowing non-singing performances to win the last three audition weeks, he granted Taylor Hughes a spot in the finale.

"I have been singing since as long as I can remember," Hughes said. "This is a very special competition because it raises funds for a sport that I hold so close to my heart. On a personal level it gives me a platform where I can get feedback from the audience and do what I love doing which is holding that microphone and entertaining."
