There were no false starts when Joseph O'Brien performed in the live quarter finals of America’s Got Talent on Tuesday night.    

The affable 20-year-old from Columbia, Tennessee had a tough time earlier in the competition, when judge Simon Cowell stopped the singer mid-song and asked him to perform an original, which he did. And it totally worked.    

This time, O’Brien when straight for the goods with an original ballad, "We Could Build A House." Again, it totally worked.    

Viewers can vote for their favorite acts, with seven acts earning a berth in the semis.
