He’s only 13, but Jeffrey Li is fast emerging as a fan-favorite on America’s Got Talent. And the youngster did his chances no harm on Tuesday with an inspirational rendition of Whitney Houston’s "One Moment In Time," originally produced for the 1988 Summer Olympics.

Fighting off nerves, the teen from Toronto found his groove and delivered a steady performance. 

Earlier, Li had a brush with fame when, during his audition in June, judge Simon Cowell promised to buy the singer a dog if he performed well. He did, though we’re all still waiting to learn what breed the Brit bought.
