As Ball prepared to belt out the Miley Cyrus hit, the audience went silent. Then an impression of Morgan Freeman was heard. The judges looked on, stunned.

The 24-year-old continued with a Mickey Mouse impression as he sang the emotional pop song. He even mimicked the legendary puppet Elmo for the grand chorus.

All four judges and the audience gave Ball a standing impression.

The brilliant 24-year-old later said that he was encouraged by friends to go on the show. Ultimately, he did it for himself:

"I’ve had people tell me I should come on and I thought finally maybe I should do it for myself because I don’t usually believe in myself."

Steve Memmolo appeared on a blind audition of the talent show. The judges faced away from him as he sang "Spooky."

He was doing well, but when the stage lit up, the audience went crazy. Memmolo's singing was already very good. The judges assumed that was the reason for the excitement.

When he successfully reached a high note of the song, Adam Levine spun around to show he wanted to coach the singer. Judge Jennifer Hudson quickly followed suit.

In the end, the judges couldn't help but mention the eerie resemblance:

"It's like Ben Affleck sings like Aretha Franklin," Levine said.

Judge Kelly Clarkson then chipped in:

"I really want you to just say, 'I'm Batman."

In a more soulful display, "Britain's Got Talent" saw an amazing mother-son duo give chills on the show.

Mel and Jamie may have lost after reaching 12th place on the show. Their rendition of Christina Aguilera's "Say Something" will remain in the hearts of many.

Their harmonious voices were perfectly in sync when the 15-year-old and the 44-year-old sang together. It was especially heartwarming since the son asked his mom to join him at the last minute.
