We Three, the Humlie sibling band from McMinnville, won the hearts of “America’s Got Talent” viewers Tuesday and advanced to the next round of the television talent competition.

The trio will play live again a few weeks from now on the semi-finals of the show.

“We feel so honored,” Manny Humlie said after he and his brother, Joshua, and sister, Bethany, received news of their success. “It’s an opportunity to share more music.”

We Three was one of seven acts advancing Wednesday night following the first round of live performances.

Tuesday night, host Tyra Banks introduced the Humlies, saying they had been “what-just-happened great” in their first two appearances on the variety show. Joshua, Bethany and Manny were shown singing at a casual family gathering before taking the stage.

Their father, George, also was seen describing his pride in his children’s musical accomplishments. “Playing music is their outlet,” he said.

After their performance of “So They Say,” the third original song they’ve performed on AGT, three of the four judges were wildly enthusiastic.”Amazing,” Howie Mandell said. Heidi Klum complimented their “beautiful harmony” and Mel B compared the group to “a young, current Dire Straits.”

But Simon Cowell chided the trio for not stepping up their game enough. His remarks prompted singer Mel B to boo before saying We Three was “brilliant” once again.

“Don’t change,” she advised them during the results show.

Voters across the U.S. agreed, giving them enough backing to advance to the next round.
