With a broader selection of acts than it’s ABC rival, American Idol, America’s Got Talent showcases a variety of acts with the goal that the winner will be able to showcase their talent in Las Vegas. Over the years, talents have ranged from Opera singers to magicians, but occasionally a violinist (or two) decides to audition.

Below, we’ve curated a list of several of the violinists who have made an appearance on America’s Got Talent so you can enjoy as well.

Tyler Butler-Figueroa

Tyler was 11 years old when he auditioned for the 2019 America’s Got Talent. His performance of Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Stronger’ earned him Simon Cowell’s coveted Golden Buzzer sending him straight to the quarterfinals.

At just four and a half, Tyler was diagnosed with leukemia and became a target of bullies at his school. His goal before coming on America’s Got Talent was to become “the kid who plays the violin” and drop the title of “kid with cancer.”

During his run on America’s Got Talent, Tyler made it to the Finals, but did not receive enough votes to move to the final 5.

Brian King Joseph

Brian King Joseph (BKJ) is an electric violinist who starred in the 13th Season (2018) of America’s Got Talent. Nicknamed “The King of Violin,” Brian began playing the violin at age 4 and has performed with George Clinton & P Funkadelics, Machine Gun Kelly, and many others. He auditioned for AGT by playing DJ Snake’s and Major Lazer’s “Lean On.”

Brian finished the competition in 3rd place behind Shin Lim and Zurcaroh.

Nuttin’ But Stringz

Two brothers from Queens, Tourie and Damien Escobar, were the original violinists on America’s Got Talent. They both attended Julliard School and auditioned for the third season of America’s Got Talent. They, like BKJ above, finished 3rd overall (why can’t violinists win AGT??).

Why ‘America’s Got Talent’ Violinist Lindsey Stirling Will “Never” Be on ‘Champions’

When it comes to America’s Got Talent, violinist Lindsey Stirling from the fifth season is impossible to forget. But unfortunately, when Lindsay participated in the show, she was subjected to excruciating criticism from the judges, especially from Piers Morgan, who once said that her performance sounded “like a pack of strangled rats.” So, eight years later, when the talent program asked her to come back and take part in the new spin-off America’s Got Talent: The Champions, the decision was easy for Lindsay.

“It was really funny because they called me and I thought maybe they wanted me to be a guest performer or something, and my jaw literally dropped. They were like, ‘We want to invite you to America’s Got Talent again.’ And I’m like, ‘Thank you. I don’t mean to be rude, but I would never come back to compete. Like, I’m sorry that I’m doing really well on my own right now. I travel the world. Thank you, but no way.”

Lindsay doesn’t lie. Since the 32-year-old musician was excluded from the variety show in 2010, he has achieved worldwide success. She currently has more than 11 million subscribers on Youtube and more than 1.9 billion views, has won two Billboard awards, has become a bestselling author and has played in sold-out arenas and cinemas around the world.

Even though Lindsay said no to the comeback, she made it clear that she doesn’t necessarily count Pierce or the other judges (Sharon Osbourne told her she didn’t think Lindsay could “fill a theater in Vegas”) completely unsuitable. But still, their words then definitely hurt me.

“Looking at the video, I didn’t feel very good,” she began. “And it’s not that they were wrong. And I think that’s why it hurt so much when I was on the show and they kicked me out and when they said really bad things to me. It hurt so much because it was partly true, and I think the truth hurts a lot more.”

Lindsay may not be returning to AGT any time soon, but considering she performed with Season 13 finalists Brian King Joseph and the Transcend duo this year, it’s possible we’ll see her appear on the show from time to time.

America’s Got Talent: Everything to Know About Violinist Lindsey Stirling

Former AGT contestant Lindsey Stirling returned to the show during the quarterfinals. Here’s what the violinist has been up to since her elimination.

Lindsey Stirling made a return to America’s Got Talent, but she has been quite busy since her first appearance on the show in season 5. The violinist might not have made it far in the competition, but she has become a household name anyway. From her albums and concerts to her awards and TV appearances, America’s Got Talent was only the first step on Lindsey’s road to fame.

Lindsey was first seen on the show during season 5, with judges Howie Mandel, Piers Morgan, and Sharon Osbourne. At 23 years old, she wowed them with her audition, introducing herself as a “hip hop violinist” and performing to the tune of “Right Round” by Flo Rida ft. Ke$ha. From there, she was sent to the next round and ultimately advanced to the quarterfinals. Unfortunately for her, that was where the journey ended.

Though the audience seemed to enjoy her mashup of “TikTok” by Ke$ha and “Break Your Heart” by Taio Cruz, the judges were not fans. Sharon Osbourne told her she would be better off in a group, and Piers didn’t hold back when he said she sounded like rats being strangled. But Piers just might be one to eat his words, as Lindsey recently made a comeback to the show as a successful guest performer.

During the latest results show, Lindsey returned with former AGT and AGT: The Champions winner Shin Lim. While the magician performed mesmerizing card tricks, Lindsey danced around him playing her original song, “Crystallize.” But before this, Lindsey was featured on the show multiple times following her short-lived stint in the competition.

Lindsey Performed on the Show Again

The first time Lindsey came to America’s Got Talent after being eliminated, she recapped her experience on the show, noting that she was heartbroken after her elimination. But her career blossomed after she started using YouTube to promote her music videos, one of which earned a million views in one day.

During that season 9 episode, she was accompanied by Lzzy Hale on vocals as she danced and played her original song “Shatter Me.” During season 13, Lindsey and contestant Brian King Joseph performed her song “Roundtable Rival” during the finale episode. Lindsey was also featured on AGT: The Champions as a guest performer along with the shadow group, Silhouettes, who danced to her song “Aurora.”

Lindsay Took Second Place in the Dancing With the Stars Show

In 2017, Lindsey was paired with Mark Ballas on season 25 of Dancing With the Stars, and the two finished in second place. Despite Piers having told her she wasn’t good enough to get away with “flying through the air and trying to play the violin at the same time,” Lindsey proved him wrong both with her career and execution on the dance competition.

During the finals, what started as a dance routine became a mixture of ballroom and violin playing when she whipped out her instrument mid-performance and played a seamless rendition of “Palladio” while getting tossed around by her dance partner.

Lindsey is a Successful Violinist

With several awards including Billboard Music and Streamy Awards, Lindsey has become a highly notable violin player. The judges may have knocked her down, but with determination, she picked herself right back up. Not everyone can win America’s Got Talent, but Lindsey has proved that contestants can thrive even without the show.

Gabriella Laberge shines on America’s Got Talent

A Quebecer competed on the famous televised talent show, America’s Got Talent. Violin in hand, composer and performer Gabriella Laberge climbed the steps of the iconic stage in April, shrouded in the greatest secrecy. The day after her audition aired – which caused a buzz and got a standing ovation from the judges – she told La Presse about her time behind the scenes at Hollywood’s biggest talent stage.

Laberge’s vacation to a coastal British Columbia island was meant to be relaxing. A romantic getaway, without phones or social media. But plans quickly changed.

“Last week I learned that my audition was going to be broadcast tonight. Had I known, I would have planned something,“ Laberge said, laughing.

The audition in question was one she had done earlier this year for America’s Got Talent. In 2018, a talent scout from the competition, now in its 16th season, contacted the singer from Saint-Basile, Que. At the time, she was still riding her success on France’s The Voice: la plus belle voix. She made it to the quarterfinals of their fifth season – the violin cover of Coldplay’s ‘The Scientist,’ which went viral, was her.

Watch Laberge’s audition on The Voice France

“At that time, I was releasing my second album, I was on tour. It wasn’t something that was on my mind,” Laberge said. A year later, she was approached again. This time, she said yes, but the COVID-19 pandemic put filming the season on hold. In the meantime, she participated in the Destination Eurovision competition, which determines France’s champion for the European song contest.

“There were so many setbacks that I didn’t believe in it anymore,” Laberge said. Three and a half years later, she finally made it to the stage of the Pasadena Civic Auditorium (“the same stage where Michael Jackson did his first moonwalk!”). Her cover of James Blunt’s ‘Goodbye My Lover,’ got a unanimous “yes” vote from the judges, and Simon Cowell summed up: “America deserves to know you.“

On YouTube, the trailer for her audition has already been watched 1.3 million times. On Facebook, 1.2 million clicks.

“This is completely crazy. You don’t expect that. After the entire long process, I got on stage with no expectations. With a lightness, even. I was just extremely grateful for this privilege,” Laberge said.

She was joined in the talent show by another Quebecer. Alexandra Côté, a dog trainer from Thetford, wowed the judges with her dogs’ acrobatic performance.

America’s Got Talent is months and months of preparation for a 120-second performance. Nothing is left to chance. In preparation for the big day, Laberge trained with a violinist from the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal and hired a voice coach. She tested dozens and dozens of songs.

Arriving in Hollywood in April, she spent a week in quarantine in a hotel, where she trained “like a racehorse.” Banned from leaving her room, except for the tip of her nose.

“I stuck my head out into the hall and heard the other contestants singing,” she said.

After two more days of rehearsal, it was time to take the stage. Due to public health restrictions, the performance hall was empty. Applause and encouragement from the audience were added in the final edit. “And the judges, they were so far away from me that I couldn’t see them,“ she added.

That didn’t stop her from delivering a performance that lived up to her ambitions – and got her to the next round. Even if, in the end, that didn’t matter much to her. “The audition was what was important. It’s my business card. The rest of the contest, the competition, that’s not what matters to me,” she said.

What matters to her is finishing her third album. And above all, to take the time to do it well.

“I no longer want to make the mistake of rushing out to release music just for the momentum. I don’t want to be defined by the buzz. I want a long career, I want to perform my whole life, and to achieve that I have a lot more to accomplish than this show,” she said.

However, the American talent competition isn’t her first brush with stardom, as in 2019 Gabriella took part in Destination Eurovision, a programme that aired in 2018 and 2019 to decide who would represent France at Eurovision.

Having sung On cherche encore (Never Get Enough), a song that she co-wrote, Gabriella missed out on her Eurovision spot to Bilal Hassani, who finished in 16th place at the 2019 contest.

Two years later, the artist took the plunge to grace one of the biggest stages in America, performing a moving rendition of James Blunt’s Goodbye My Lover.

Gabriella began her performance by playing the violin, which – while beautifully done – seemed to egg Simon on to push his red buzzer.

I enjoyed every second.”

She is not the only one. The four judges commended the singer and violinist after her performance of Farewell my loveWritten by James Blunt, which earned him a standing ovation.

“It was fantastic. Sofia Vergara praised the violin, a perfect complement to your beautiful voice.

The magic of her voice is Howie Mandel and Heidi Klum. Mendel told her, “You are my angel.”

After indicating that she was at her best during the second part of the song, Simon Cowell voted yes. The other three followed without being asked.

It wasn’t a surprise. We already knew Gabriella had seduced the judges since Monday morning’s hearing was posted on .’s Instagram pageamerican talents (eight) But we did not know what they would say to him after his performance.

A long courtship preceded this magical moment.

On three occasions, producerseight Gabriella invited to participate in the auditions. The first time was in 2018, two years after participating in it the sound. “I was in France, I was touring on my second album, I was with Polydor. I wasn’t really interested in it,” she explains.

In order to fully prepare, I practiced for two months full time. “Apart from the music parks last year, we haven’t had many concerts since the beginning of the pandemic.
