The return of Tyler on America’s Got Talent took place on Tuesday evening. Having violinist Tyler Butler-Figueroa back on the AGT stage was a treat for the judges as well as the home audience.
Simon Cowell gave Tyler a Golden Buzzer during the audition phase of the 2019 AGT season. It sent Tyler straight on to the quarterfinals of the season, where he got to perform in front of the live studio audience.
Tyler easily advanced during Quarterfinals 2, receiving a lot of support during America’s Got Talent’s Vote and sailing straight into the semifinals. The 11-year-old violinist also established himself as someone in true contention to possibly win the $1 million prize this summer.
During Semifinals 1 he may have just brought the house down. His full performance is shared below and it shows just how impressive he is in front of a live audience.
Tyler’s rendition of Break Free, done with fellow cancer survivors is one of those moments that will live in the great history of the reality competition show.
