America’s Got Talent spin-off or AGT: All-Stars is a variety show that recently aired on NBC. The fantastic reality show features several finalists & performers from all the previous AGT seasons.
One of the performers, Tom Ball, has gained much attention because of his “Golden Buzzer” performance on the AGT: All-Stars audition round. The talented singer shocks the judges with his vocal range and achieves a spot in the live shows.
A recently-shared video clip shows Tom Ball, a 24-year-old British teacher, performing his best performance onstage. He performs a rendition of the iconic song by Simon and Garfunkel, “The Sounds of Silence.”
He impresses everyone with his moving rendition of the 1964 classic hit. But it was Simon Cowell who had a lot of things to say to the performer. After Tom’s performance, Cowell, Howie Mandel, & Heidi Klum give him a standing ovation.
Cowell instantly gives feedback about the performance and asks Tom to come to the front of the stage. He then says, “I’m actually angry about something. I wish this was the first time I’d heard Tom weirdly.” He adds, “You’re like Susan Boyle’s grandson. What you do is not what we expect. This is the best performance I’ve seen in all the series.”
Mandel also has plenty of good things to say about the performance, “You surprise me in many ways. Although, of course, you are only 24, and Simon and Garfunkel are much older than that. But you do it so right. You are really amazing.”
The crowd soon started to chant, “Golden Buzzer.” Terry Crews, the host, asks the judges in sign language if he can join them. Simon shows a thumbs-up sign and asks him to join the 3 judges to press the “Golden Buzzer.” Tom Ball moved to the live rounds directly.
