Terry Crews’ Joyful “White Chicks” Throwback On “AGT” Will Have You Singing Along.

A two-photo collage. The first shows a close up of Terry Crews in "White Chicks" during his iconic "A Thousand Miles" scene. He's singing and has a finger pointed at his head to indicate thinking. In the second photo, Crews is on the "AGT" stage singing this same song, in the same pose. Craig Robinson plays the piano next to him.

Terry Crews has become a beloved host on “America’s Got Talent” but, just last night, he took to the stage as a performer. It all started with Craig Robinson at the piano. The stage was lit up like a beautiful night sky, moon and all. It seemed as though only Robinson would be performing, but he quickly introduced Crews just as the iconic notes of “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton began.


In case you didn’t know, one of Crews’ first iconic roles was in “White Chicks.” One of his most memorable scenes takes place during a date he won at an auction. This date is with undercover FBI agent Marcus Copeland, and he wants nothing to do with Crews’ character, Latrell Spencer. In hopes of making Latrell uninterested, he plays “A Thousand Miles.” Let’s just say this plan backfired.

That’s why, when Crews began to belt out those lyrics with just as much enthusiasm as he had all those years ago, the audience erupted with cheers! The “AGT” host first appeared in the aisles among the audience. As he made his way back to the stage, folks couldn’t help but sing and dance along.

By the time Crews reached the judges, three violin players who were previously hidden popped up, adding even more pizzaz to this theatrical performance. Needless to say, this unexpected moment was one of pure joy for everyone who watched, especially long-time fans of Crews!

Watch Crews perform “A Thousand Miles” on “AGT” with infectious joy in the video below.
