In a genuinely baffling move, two women brought a chicken onstage to perform on "America's Got Talent".

Jokgu the chicken's handlers announced she was going to play "America the Beautiful", a truly patriotic song about the United States' purple mountain majesties.

"She picked it up very quickly, she's very intelligent" one of the chicken's owners said about her keyboard skills.

The judges were honestly NOT amused as Jokgu looked lost in front of the keyboard, the audience turned fowl and started booing... and then something utterly ridiculous happened.

THE DAMN CHICKEN STARTED PLAYING THE KEYBOARD.

Honestly, same.

"THAT is what I call talent," the show's host Tyra Banks said, while the judges, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel, gave Jokgu a standing ovation. Which was egg-xactly what she deserved.

Needless to say Jokgu won the hearts of the internet in an instant.

KFC now stands for Kentucky Fried Chopin.

But that's not all! Speaking to the judges, Jokgu's handlers admitted that she isn't the only musical chicken in their flock, admitting that they have a drumming chicken, and are planning to put a band together. And they seriously are.

Simon Cowell called the act "one of the most incredible things on any of these shows". Jokgu got four yeses, advancing her in the competition.

Watch the whole clip above, then send it to everyone you know and love. This is clucking important.
