CHICAGO (AP) - An 82-year-old Colorado man who has become a viral sensation following his rendition of Drowning Pool’s “Bodies” on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” last month will have the chance to perform the song with the metal band Friday.

John Hetlinger has accepted the band’s invitation to join them for their afternoon set at the Chicago Open Air festival. Hetlinger made the announcement in a video for TMZ .

The retired aerospace engineer and former Navy pilot shocked the “AGT” panel with his version of Drowning Pool’s 2001 hit by screaming the song’s refrain, “Let the bodies hit the floor.” Video of the performance has been viewed more than 8 million times on YouTube .
