Watching people with a variety of different talents audition, perform, and accomplish their dreams... What's not to love? It's the go-to show if you want cheering up, and its huge variety of different performers never ceases to amaze us.

And there's one performance that has made the headlines this week for the most amazing reason. One little boy completely stole Tuesday night's show with his emotional performance and even won Simon Cowell's Golden Buzzer. And anyone who knows the notoriously cynical judge will know that this is no easy feat.

Keep reading to see the moving video - and make sure that you have your tissues at the ready.

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...

British 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.

As 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 Butler-Figueroa, who is only eleven years old and from South Carolina, wowed the judges with his stunning violin performance.

Tyler's journey hasn't been a smooth one.

At just the age of 4, Tyler was diagnosed with Leukemia. Though he is now in remission, he suffered at the hands of bullies along the way.

Tyler was bullied for "being different."

Due to his hair-loss caused by chemotherapy treatments, Tyler was picked on in school. He said on the show, "I was really sad and embarrassed … to go to school. They used to make fun of me and laugh at me because I was different."

Tyler first picked up the violin when he was 7 years old.

Tyler needed a way of coping with the bullying that he was experiencing at school... and he chose the violin as his tool to do so. An after-school violin program changed Tyler's life, with the instrument rebuilding his confidence. "When I play the violin, it helps me forget about all the bad stuff." He explained, "I just didn't want to be the kid with cancer, so now, I'm the kid who plays the violin."

The violin brought Tyler back.

His mom, through tears, recalled how she has noticed a change in his energy and happiness since picking up the instrument, and even went as far to say that the violin has given her her son back.

And he picked the most fitting song for his audition.

Tyler performed Kelly Clarkson's "What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger," which echoed a poignant message about his health battles in the past.

It's needless to say - his performance was phenomenal.

Without even mentioning his skills on the violin, Tyler's overall stage presence was infectious and he soon had the audience and some of the judges stood up and dancing along.

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.

And with that, Simon pushed the Golden Buzzer. Judges are only permitted one Golden Buzzer each season, so they only save it for the best of the best - which Tyler has proved himself to be.

Tyler was instantly reduced to tears.

And so was the rest of America. Surrounded by golden confetti and the sound of the crowd cheering for him, Tyler crumpled to the floor. Our hearts.

Emotions were running high.

After being catapulted straight to the Hollywood final, Tyler and his mom were unable to contain their joy.

You can watch Tyler's big moment here.

Prepare to be blown away.

We'll be rooting for you, Tyler!
