Tyler Butler-Figueroa is bringing the heat with his violin.
The 11-year-old violin prodigy absolutely shredded his take on Beyonce’s hit jam “Survivor” at the “America’s Got Talent” live results finale. Judge Simon Cowell mentioned how Beyonce personally cleared the song for Butler-Figueroa to use.
Butler-Figueroa picked a song near and dear to his heart; the 11-year-old musician is a cancer survivor.
“Tyler, I am bursting with pride for you right now and that film just says way more than I could ever say the impact you’ve had,” Cowell said following his performance. “Tyler, you’ve got a shot here.”
“There isn’t anything that I can say to add to that except the word pride,” Howie Mandel added. “I am so proud and so inspired to be here witnessing this. America is gonna have a tough choice. You are worthy of being here, you are worthy of winning, and you are winning in life.”
The season 14 finale results show airs tonight.
