Andrew De Leon, who reveals he has been alienated since he was a kid, brings the crowd at the Austin auditions to tears with his performance of an opera song.
"America's Got Talent" might have found the next Susan Boyle. In the second round of Austin auditions, Andrew De Leon, who reveals he feels alienated since he was a kid, stunned the judges with a combination of his goth look and angelic voice.
Donning stark blue contact lenses, heavy eyeliner and Marilyn Manson-like outfit, Andrew said he never sang in front of anybody before. As he opened his mouth, the make-up artist wowed everyone in the room with his beautiful performance of an opera song that even brought some girls in the audience to tears.
All three judges gave a standing ovation and "yes" answers to Andrew. "I'm just so used to being rejected and I'm not really good at anything, so this is amazing," the young man said as Howard Stern asked him how he felt about the positive reaction from the crowd. Howie Mandell then corrected him as commenting, "It's not that you're good at anything. You're great."
