Pitt County Step Team On America's Got Talent

The summer-long talent search known as "America's Got Talent" kicked off on WITN Tuesday night -- and you might recognize some familiar faces.

A group of Pitt County students, who make up the "Hype" step team, will appear on the show.

In 2012 the team was named Disney National Step Show champions.

The group was started by North Pitt assistant principal Willie Joyner who continues to coach the team.
