When it comes to singing competitions, Whitney Houston covers are risky.

The iconic singer has wowed audiences for years, and trying to stand up to her incredible vocal range is quite the task.

But singer Johnny Manuel was up for the challenge.

Manuel amazed the judges and audience members on NBC's "America's Got Talent" during Tuesday night's episode.

His performance of Houston's hit "I Have Nothing" showed everyone watching that his vocal ability is electric.

After the performance, Manuel received a standing ovation from the judges.
