The Filipino contestant nailed the high notes of “All By Myself,” which stunned everyone in the audience, including the judges and host of the show.
After his performance, judges Howie Mandel, Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all gave him a standing ovation.
“You have an amazing voice, an amazing personality, an amazing energy,” Cowell gushed. “Everyone is gonna fall in love with you after this audition.”
Fellow panelist, Heidi Klum, warned, “Mariah better watch out.”
“I think you are incredible. What do your neighbors say when you rehearse these types of songs?” Heidi asked the Pinoy talent.
And to this, the 10-year-old answered, “They got surprised.”
If Peter were to win the $1 million grand prize for the performance competition, he said that he would buy a Nintendo Switch and a laptop for his online schooling. After all four judges voted him through to the next round, he’s one step closer to his 10-year-old goals, which everyone in the audience absolutely loved.
Meanwhile, Howie Mandel told Peter, “You’re amazing. You’re so cute even when you talk to us. I predict you will go far in this competition.”
