Joseph Allen is not only a great performer and a creative powerhouse, he is also a real inspiration. The 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Texas entered the America's Got Talent Stage on Tuesday, where he proved to be one of the most powerful, charismatic and magnetic performers the show has seen in years.
"I always had the feeling of saying something and then accomplishing it," Allen explained in a ready-made package, thinking of something, it becomes a singular focus and he makes it happen. "I taught myself how to mix music, how to produce, how to engineer, and now I'm here."
Before he even opened his mouth to sing, Allen's smile and charm was already cheering the audience and when Judge Simon Cowell asked why he wanted to enter the competition this year, Allen's enthusiastic response filled the crowd.
Wrote an original song for his appearance on the show
"I see myself as someone who can have a big impact on the world and I just want to see how much footprint I have on the world Earth can leave before I go. "
It was clear the judges had no idea what to expect, especially after Allen said he had written an original song just for his appearance on the show, but when he started his performance, it was clear that he was a powerhouse.
The song – which contains the probable prophetic texts "after today, the world will know my name" – was a perfect showcase of his talents and was overwhelmed with standing ovation.
After Cowell, Julianne Hough, and Gabrielle Union voiced their praise, Judge Howie Mandel explained that his performance was something truly memorable.
"From the moment you left, your smile was electrified." Almond puzzled. "Life is a series of moments, and people at home are talking about that moment, people in this room are talking about this moment." While talking, Mandel climbed excitedly to the judge's table and said, "You said you want to leave a footprint Well, I'll give you the footprint you need," as he stamped hard on the golden buzzer and the young singer showered with shimmering confetti.
America's Got Talent returns next Tuesday at 8 pm ET / PT on NBC, where more hopefuls will audition for a place in the next round of the competition.
