America's Got Talent hosts a variety of different performances.Whether it's professional dancers, magicians or ventriloquists battling it out for that $1 million dollar prize, there isn't much that the show hasn't seen.
Though the auditionees have to impress the judges first.The contestants are taken through various stages of the show, wherein they have to continuously wow the star-studded judges' panel... not an easy task, to say the least.
And there's one judge who is notoriously cynical...
via: YoutubeBritish TV personality, Simon Cowell, is known for his blunt, and sometimes cruel, attitude towards contestants who haven't quite tickled his fancy.
He never holds back.If he thinks you're terrible... he'll tell you that you're terrible. The scariest part of appearing on the show isn't the millions of people watching you at home - it's having your passion and your talent ripped apart by Simon Cowell.
But when he's impressed...You'll certainly know about it. If a contestant manages to impress Simon, you know they've made it.
But there's one thing that's even harder to achieve than Simon's approval.
via: NBCAs most of you know, the judges each have an offensively loud and garish red buzzer that is pressed when a judge is getting bored or is simply unimpressed (savage, we know...).
And then there's the golden buzzer...The thing that all budding performers dream of. The golden buzzer sends the contestant straight to the final in Hollywood and is only pressed when a judge is well and truly blown away.
And this week, one little boy earnt the golden buzz of approval.
Tyler's journey hasn't been a smooth one.
Tyler was bullied for "being different."
Tyler first picked up the violin when he was 7 years old.
The violin brought Tyler back.
And he picked the most fitting song for his audition.
It's needless to say - his performance was phenomenal.
He even managed to impress Simon Cowell.Which is an achievement in its own right. Once his performance had finished, Simon congratulated the young boy: "You are an extraordinary young man," Cowell gushed. "I think you have such an amazing talent and such a personality."
And Simon proved those bullies wrong.
Tyler was instantly reduced to tears.
Emotions were running high.
You can watch Tyler's big moment here.Prepare to be blown away.
We'll be rooting for you, Tyler!
