  • It's so nice to meet you.

  • Happy birthday.

  • Today is Tyler's birthday.

  • [CHEERING] Thank you.

  • Are you turning 11 or 12?

  • Well, I'm turning 12--

  • Turning--

  • --and-- yeah.

  • I wanted the biggest birthday party ever.

  • And to me, this is the biggest birthday party ever.

  • Oh, wow.

  • [CHEERING]

  • Well, I had brought you gifts.

  • I'll send them back.

  • If this is enough for you, then I should--

  • so how did you start--

  • I know this story, but tell people

  • why you started playing violin.

  • Well, when I started playing violin,

  • I was only seven years old.

  • And I was being bullied in school because I had cancer

  • and my hair started coming out.

  • And I really didn't have anything to do,

  • because I had a port in my chest.

  • And I couldn't play any sports, and so I wanted something

  • to do.

  • And I started playing the violin.

  • And I feel like that was a way to release myself

  • through music.

  • Yeah.

  • And then I understand that you were outside

  • busking to make money so that you could raise the airfare

  • to get to America's Got Talent.

  • Yeah.

  • So I street performed for a year to save up

  • my money for my family's travel expenses

  • so I could make it to Charlotte, North Carolina and audition.

  • And so I made the cut, and look at me now.

  • Look at you now.

  • [CHEERING]

  • What is it about performing that you like so much?

  • When I perform, I feel like I'm the Incredible Hulk,

  • because I'm like a regular person now.

  • And just like the Hulk-- he's shy.

  • He really doesn't talk.

  • But then when it's action time, we

  • turn into a different person.

  • And I just love to perform.

  • Well, it shows.

  • You're an amazing performer.

  • And I assume Simon is your favorite judge because he gave

  • you the golden ticket, right?

  • Yes.

  • Yeah.

  • And before I even got on stage, I

  • was telling my mom I wanted to impress Simon.

  • Yeah, it was just a really exciting moment.

  • Yeah.

  • So you've gone from being bullied--

  • I bet the kids at school think you're pretty cool now.

  • Yes.

  • Now all the bullies want to be my friends,

  • and they congratulate me.

  • And--

  • [CHEERING]

  • I--

  • That's amazing, but you know, they should have been like

  • that-- they should have been that way to you all along,

  • not just because you're on TV and you're doing so well.

  • I got you a gift for your birthday,

  • because I know that you have-- you want two violins,

  • but I got you three.

  • And I got you some beautiful violins.

  • [CHEERING]

  • [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • Cool, right?

  • Thank you.

  • All right.

  • And I know that you busk to help your mom with bills

  • and everything.

  • So Shutterfly loves helping people like yourself,

  • so they want to give you $10,000.

  • [CHEERING]

  • That-- Nice.

  • Tyler's going to perform after this.

  • We'll be back.

  • Talent, Tyler Figueroa.
