10-year-old Peter Rosalita gets a standing ovation during his audition

A 10-year-old Filipino singer stunned judges and audience members of reality talent competition America’s Got Talent after belting out his own rendition of the Celine Dion classic “All By Myself” during the show’s season premiere on Wednesday, June 2.

Abu Dhabi-born Peter Rosalita introduced himself as a Filipino citizen before showcasing his vocal chops. The performance earned a standing ovation from judges Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Simon Cowell.

Cowell said Rosalito’s performance gave him goosebumps. “Everyone is going to fall in love with you after this audition,” he said.

When Vergara asked what he would do if he won the $1 million cash prize, Rosalita said he would use it to buy “a Nintendo switch, and a laptop for my online school,”

“I predict you’re gonna go far in this competition,” Mandel said, while Klum quipped “Mariah better watch out!”

The 10-year-old will be proceeding to the next round of the contest after getting four nods from the judges.

AGT is a US-based talent show competition, created by Cowell in 2005. It is currently airing its 16th season and is hosted by Terry Crews. – with reports from Paolo Alejandrino/
