Brooke Simpson bowled over the judges with her “America’s Got Talent” audition of Lizzo’s “Cuz I Love You”, and raised the bar for her return on Tuesday for the quarter-finals.

Simpson, who was coached by Miley Cyrus when she competed in the 13th season of “The Voice”, sang “Lost Cause” by Billie Eilish, and the performance instantly became one of the standouts of the evening.

Not only did Simpson earn a standing ovation from all four judges, she also managed to bring a smile to the face of the notoriously critical judge once known as “Mr. Nasty”.

“It was a great performance,” he added.
