There have been some truly heart-warming and emotional performances on Americas Got Talent ...
But this 11-year-old’s audition tops them all!
Cancer survivor Tyler Butler-Figueroa left the judges in tears – not only with his brave story of overcoming leukaemia – but with his impressive violin performance of Kelly Clarkson's Stronger.
Tyler impressed Simon Cowell so much, in fact, that he awarded the youngster with the Golden Buzzer which automatically sends him to the next round in the competition!
Tyler revealed on stage that he started playing the violin at the age of seven after getting bullied at school for having cancer.
"I just didn’t want to be the kid with cancer," he said, "so now I’m the kid who plays the violin."
Someone pass us the tissues!
