It appears that we have a new Susan Boyle on our hands! When Andrew De Leon appeared on the America’s Got Talent audition stage last night, his goth appearance had everyone in shock, and doubt of what was about to come out of his mouth. And boy, was it an unexpected performance!
“I’ve never performed in front of anybody,” revealed De Leon, who says he’s only ever performed in his bedroom! “Growing up, I was alienated because I was never interested in athletics or what everybody else in my family was interested in. Singing was always an escape. It was always a comfort zone,” he told Nick Cannon just before hitting the stage.
“I’m just so used to being rejected, and I’m not really good at anything, so this is amazing,” he told the judges.
Well, rejection is now a thing of the past. De Leon received an overwhelming approval from the crowd and from all three judges. He will move on to the next round in Las Vegas.
