The 82-year-old who found fame singing Drowning Pool classic Bodies on America’s Got Talent has now performed Rob Zombie’s Dragula.

Retired aerospace engineer John Hetlinger made headlines for his game show performance last month – with the band inviting him onstage to sing with them at Chicago Open Air last weekend.

Now the pensioner has turned his attention to another rock cover on the latest episode of the US show.

Speaking of Dragula, Hetlinger tells the Denver Post: “I have no idea what it means. I have no idea what the words mean. I have no idea at all.”

He says of his sudden fame: “I’m taking it in stride. I’m really surprised by the results, but all-in-all, I think it’s really a lot of fun.”

Last month, Zombie released a video for Medication For The Melancholy from his latest album The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser.
