Charlotte star Delighted Tobehere, formerly known by many as Roxy C. Moorecox, made a grand appearance on “America’s Got Talent” on Tuesday evening.

Tobehere, the alter-ego of former Charlotte performer Clay Smith, underwent a name and brand change earlier this year. Smith told us earlier this year about the name change in an “Our People” Q&A installment.

“Delighted Tobehere is just good ol’ Roxy with a fresh coat of paint and a new outlook on life and what it means to be an entertainer,” Smith said at the time. “I recognized that the risqué nature of my stage name was holding me back from more “mainstream’ opportunities and that a change needed to take place. So, with the careful and thoughtful advice from a team of advisors and professionals, I created a new name that not only reflected the playful, southern charm that you loved about Roxy, but that also incorporates the message of having a positive outlook on life.”

Since moving to New York City, Tobehere has found an exuberant audience for her unique style, performing regularly around the city and continuing her trips for performances across the country. Just a few days after moving to the Big Apple, she competed in and won the Broadway’s Best Drag competition.

If you missed Tuesday’s airing of “America’s Got Talent,” here’s a short clip. Tobehere received four yes votes from judges Howie Mandel, Howard Stern, Melanie Brown and Heidi Klum.

  1. So thrilled to see Clay’s talent get the exposure it deserves. Talented, funny, sweet and kind are the top four adjectives that always come to mind when thinking of Clay, Roxy, and Delighted Tobehere. Can hardly wait to get tickets to see that talent on the stage at Carnegie Hall!
