Performances have seen judge Simon Cowell stunned by a nurse who sang ‘the hardest song in the world’ and a school janitor who won a coveted Golden Buzzer for his powerful rendition of Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin”.

Yet there is nothing quite like a family performance, and the latest breakout act aired on Saturday night (June 22) may be one of the most emotional yet.

Speaking before their audition, the group told Simon Cowell that before she died it was their mum's dream that they would perform on the show.

All of the member of L6 were visibly shaken, with some of them in tears, as Simon explained his decision.

“Everyone, I wanna say something,” he said as the crowd continued to boo him.

“In my opinion, the track was terrible. And there aren’t that many great acapella groups, and I think you’ve got the potential to be a great acapella group.”

“How you just took on everything without a track— you were more unique. It was more special. It was more memorable. And you just absolutely nailed that.”

Fellow judge Heidi Klum added how brave they were to keep going after Simon Cowell had waved them to a stop.

“Everyone was so important in this song—how you melted together,” Heidi Klum told them.

“After Simon raised his hand, some people probably would just run off. And you just took it as a champ. And yes, he was right. It sounded amazing.”

Fans of America’s Got Talent took to the comment section to praise Simon Cowell for his decision.

“Simon was right, they sang much better without the backing track, they were exceptional,” one enthused.

“Simon knows exactly what he is doing,” another wrote. “As soon as he said “You’ve got the potential to BE a great a capella group”, I felt something. I knew it was going to be the best advice.”

L6 were then given four ‘yes’ votes from the judges, propelling them to the next round of the show.
