Tyler Butler-Figueroa may not have won “America’s Got Talent” but he scored himself a big fanbase and an even bigger birthday party.
The 11-year-old violinist dropped by Wednesday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”. The Tuesday taping coincided with Butler-Figueroa’s 12th birthday.
“I wanted the biggest birthday party ever and to me, this is the biggest birthday party ever,” he told DeGeneres.
Butler-Figueroa compared performing to being the Incredible Hulk.
“I’m like, a regular person now, and just like with the Hulk, he’s shy and doesn’t really talk,” the young man said. “But when it’s action time, we turn into a different person, and I just love to perform.”
Butler-Figueroa, a top-10 contestant on season 14 of “AGT”, also opened up about bullying and his battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
