Filipino performer Ehrlich Ocampo will be advancing to the next round of America's Got Talent after he received four yeses from the judges.
Before his performance, judge Sofia Vergara asked the Filipino performer why he decided to try out for AGT.
Ehrlich said, “I gave up everything to pursue my performing. People thought I was crazy. I didn’t think I’ll make it here. But my friends and family, they supported me and they inspired me to fight. I am here fighting for myself, my family, my friends, my community, my country.”
After his performance, he received standing ovations from the judges.
"We haven’t seen anything like this before. I think the fact that you’ve got the guts to do what you’ve done means in life, you’re going to do amazing. All the hours that went into this paid off. Fantastic. Well done," Simon Cowell told Ehrlich.
The Filipino former got more ecstatic when his idol Heidi Klum complimented his performance.
“You are mesmerizing to watch because we kind of wonder how you do it. And you move so beautifully and elegant. You were incredible. I loved it. It’s very unique,” Heidi said.
In response Ehrlich told the supermodel, “Thank you, Heidi. That means a lot. I’m your fan!"
Ehrlich's audition performance has already gained more than 1.5 million views on YouTube as of this writing.
