Tyler Butler-Figueroa continues to play with maturity beyond his years on America’s Got Talent, where the 11-year-old went for an EDM classic during Tuesday night’s quarterfinal. 

The young cancer survivor would’ve been a Sesame Street devotee when Swedish House Mafia first released “Don’t You Worry Child” in 2012.    


When the talented violinist stepped onto the AGT stage overnight, there were no worries at all as he bounced on an oversize keyboard with all the joy of youth. 

A golden buzzer winner in the auditions, Butler-Figueroa gave an exuberant display, though judge Simon Cowell appeared underwhelmed. Did the rest of the country feel it? We’ll have to wait until Wednesday night to learn if he progresses to the semis.
