Brian King Joseph, the electric violinist, has played his way through to the America's Got Talent finale with his eccentric and exciting sound and style.

The young man is one of the most promising acts to win the competition and he is a serious contender to the trophy, but he also has other objectives.

At the end of his performance, which was nothing short of spectacular, King lowered his bow and shouted 'take me on tour, Kanye!'

A FAN OF KANYE WEST

The musician was referring to Kim Kardashian's husband, rapper Kanye West, who is considering to be one of the biggest names in the music industry.

King's performance was outstanding; in fact, he was so fantastic that judge Howie Mandel believed that he should have been the last act in order to end the show perfectly.

HIS ILLNESS DOESN'T SLOW HIM DOWN

King, who has a severe nerve disease, played a rendition of West's "Heartless,"  accompanied by a show of lights and drums that created a Tron-like atmosphere.

Former Spice Girl Mel B was also delighted to see King on stage because she already knew that he was going to 'deliver,' and considered him 'the best violinist performer of all time.'

SIMON WAS BLOWN AWAY

Heidi Klum admired the way the musician reached the finale, complimenting not only his musical gift but also his personality and his passion for the violin.

But, as always, the most awaited opinion came from Simon Cowell, who was overwhelmed by King's entrance, claiming that he has what it takes to win and that American's Got Talent could really change his life.

A RISING STAR

Still, King's victory isn't guaranteed as he faces fierce competition from Courtney Hadwin. The 14-year-old from County Durham, England, has been causing jaws to drop every time she steps on stage.

On Tuesday, she performed Tina Turners' 1988 classic "River Deep - Mountain High" and proved why she is considered to be the number one contender on the show.
