– Here we go! Everybody hold on!
Ahhhh! She did it! – Oh my gosh. (laughs) ♪ (dramatic chord) ♪ – (FBE) So today, we have a challenge
for you that might make you a little emotional.
– Uh-oh. I woke up this morning ready for a challenge.
– Oh, what kind of emotional? 'Cause I'm fragile.
– (FBE) This is going to be a Try Not to Cry Challenge.
– No! Thank god I'm not wearing bottom mascara. – (FBE) For this challenge,
all the videos are gonna be golden buzzer moments
from the "Got Talent" franchise. – Oh, okay. So, it's like
a good cry. – (gasps) These are my favorite.
I am a huge fan of "America's Got Talent."
– The judges only get one per season, right?
So, I feel like if they're gonna use it, it's probably, A,
someone who's crazy talented, and B, someone who has
a really amazing story. And I think the combination
of those two is a lot emotionally. – (FBE) We're gonna have you rate
each video on a scale of one to five based on how emotional
you thought they were. – Bring out the tissues! – Thank you.
– It's okay to be emotional. – It's a natural human thing.
Everyone should feel emotions and not feel ashamed to cry.
Let's go. – I'm Kodi.
– (Howie) Hi, Kodi. – I know this one.
– Oh, I saw this one. – Oh, no! I've seen this.
– I just saw this the other day. – (Kodi) I'm gonna sing
a song for you on the piano. – (Gabrielle) I love it.
– This is so wonderful to see the first time.
– (Tina) Kodi is blind and autistic. – (judge) Wow.
– (Tina) We found out that he loved music really early on.
It actually has saved his life, playing music.
– Aww. – Music is amazing. It just does so many things.
– Ooh, I just got… goosebumps. – (gasps)
– Oh, yes! Okay, here we go. Everybody, be quiet!
Nobody talk to me! – ♪ I've been to so many places ♪
– Yes, vocals! – I love Simon's face.
He's just as taken aback. – ♪ I've sung a lot of songs ♪
– I'm already tearing up. – Very talented.
– ♪ I've acted out my life on stages ♪ – He's so good.
– ♪ …10,000 people watching, yeah ♪ – If I had an ounce of his talent…
– ♪ And I'm singing this song to you ♪ ♪ Woo, ooh, oh no ♪
– Ah, his voice. – Oh my gosh! Ah!
– That range. Oh my gosh. – ♪ …song ♪
– (gasps) Oh my god. I just got goosebumps.
– ♪ …to you ♪ – (crowd cheering)
– (clapping) Yes! – (Howie) Well, first of all,
I will tell you that all four judges
and everybody in this room were up on their feet.
I will tell you that. – Aww.
– (Howie) You gotta know that. – (Gabrielle) I'm a new judge
this season, and I'm also a new mom this year.
– I love Gabrielle. – (Gabrielle) You just want to give
your kids the moon, the stars and the rainbows.
And tonight… – Aww!
– Mmm. – She's going for the buzzer.
– Here we go! Everybody hold on!
Ah, she did it! – (gasps)
– Oh my gosh! – (chuckles) That's so cute. – I love their faces as they realize what's going on. Oh my gosh.
– I am so fully emotionally invested in this right now!
– That's insane. – I'm on the verge of tears.
– I have a special needs brother of my own, and…
he's just the greatest. You never really know
how talented somebody can be if they have these special needs.
It's crazy. – (FBE) So, this video recently
went viral of Kodi Lee, a talented 22-year-old singer
and pianist, who's blind and autistic. – Oh my god.
– (FBE) As of filming this episode, the video already has
almost 20 million views in two days. – First of all,
he's so talented. It's so impressive.
And to be able to do all that with being in a situation like that,
it made me emotional. I got teary-eyed,
so I'm sure it affected a lot of other people, too.
– (FBE) After watching this video, where do you rank it
on the emotional scale of one to five? – Three.
– Mm, a four. – Obviously, it holds
a special place in my heart, but I would say three.
– Kodi's amazing. He's a 10. But in terms of tears,
you know, I'm just gonna give that one a two.
– Four. – Five. Nothing's gonna beat this one.
It was beautiful. I cried! – Five. That's a pure moment.
That's a real moment. – Five!
– That's a five for sure. – That's a five.
– I mean, I've seen it before and trust me,
I was crying way harder. (laughs) – I'm Kseniya Simonova.
I'm 33 years old, from Ukraine. When I found sand,
it was like… – I haven't seen this one. – (Kseniya) This is the story
about a child, who grew up, became famous artist,
and forgot his parents. – What?!
– (Kseniya) I wish nobody forgets their parents, please.
– Whoa. I've never seen this one. – Whoa!
– Ooh. – Is she drawing with sand?
– Oh, that's cool. – That is an amazing talent. – That's insane. – Oh, no. They're not answering.
(heart rate monitor beeping) (heart rate monitor flatlining)
Wait! – No!
– (crowd) Awww. – Oh my gosh.
– I'm getting goosebumps. – Wow.
– ♪ Slow down ♪ – Whoa. – (crowd cheering)
– "Don't… be… late." Awww. – (Terry) Okay, okay!
– Tearing up. – Oh, Terry Crews
is such a good host. He's just a happy guy.
– (Terry) I have never been more impressed
by the ability to move people the way you did today!
– Wow. – Terry… Is he gonna do it?
What?! (laughs) Terry Crews came out of nowhere! – Oh! He can do that?!
Terry Crews gots the power! – Oh, he gets a golden buzzer too? – Aww.
– Oh, wow. – That's such a happy moment
for people. – Oh, that's so beautiful.
– This person's very talented and I'm glad that their talent
is being shown to the world. – That's a really creative way
to enter the competition, and the story was very deep.
I wonder if it connects back to her life.
– I'm gonna give that one definitely a solid one.
– A two. I just didn't feel the emotional attachment.
– That was a four. – I would give that a…
a two. – I'll say a two.
I think it was more just uplifting than emotional in general. – I'm putting it at three,
in the middle, just to have that neutral
sort of attitude. – I was really impressed
by the sand art, so I'd give it a two.
– Three. – Yeah.
– Three for sure. – I got lots of goosebumps.
– I love it. I would give that a four.
That was so good. Anything with parents too.
I love my parents so much. – (Alesha) What's your name?
– I'm Dave McPartlin. I'm the head teacher
at Flakefleet Primary School. And this is our choir.
– Oh! I've seen this, too. – I haven't.
– (Alesha) What's the big dream for this choir?
– Reading and writing's important at school,
but the kids had a dream. This one in assembly said she wanted
to go on "Britain's Got Talent." And here we are.
– Aww. – ♪ Tonight, I'm gonna have myself
a real… ♪ – I love this song.
– ♪ I feel alive ♪ ♪ Ah, ah, ah ♪
– They're so cute. – ♪ Don't stop me now ♪
– (chuckles) That's sweet. – Oh, there's even more kiddies. – ♪ Having a good time ♪
♪Having a good time ♪ (both giggling) – (gasps) Ah, the teacher! – (laughs) Oh!

wholesome thing. – ♪ I don't wanna stop at all ♪
(kids cheering) – Whoa!
– (David) You've just made all our hearts soar today,
and that's you want your childhood to have been like
and what you want your children's childhood
to be like. – Aw, he's so right.
– Awww. – I'm already tearing up.
– (David) …unbridled joy. – Oh, look at the little boy!
– Aww. – (David) So, this is what I think!
– Really? This is gonna be the one that's gonna make me cry?
(sniffles) Aww. – Awww.
That's so cute. – Aww. – Aww! Oh my gosh. (chuckles) – Aww, that was so cute.
– I'm gonna give it a three, 'cause I didn't cry.
But it did give me chills. – A solid four.
I can see why somebody would cry at that.
– Three. Am I dead inside? Should I be having a different
reaction to these clips? – A four.
– I'd give it a three, 'cause I feel like it was
a little less than the first one. – Four.
– One. They didn't struggle. There was no story behind it.
They were just kids being kids. – That one's a good four.
– I was feeling lots of emotions. Happiness… Oh, just happiness, I guess. (laughs)
– Laughter. – Three, even though
it's the one that made me cry. It was more sweet and touching.
Seeing a teacher who cares that much, when every parent sends
their kid to school, that's what they hope for. – My name– my name's Drew.
– Yes! This guy! Oh my gosh! – (Drew) I, uh– I have a–
I have– I have a stutter. That's what– that's–
that's what that is. – (both) Aww.
– (Howard) And what is your talent? – (Drew) I'm a– I'm a
com-com-comedian. – (Howard) A comedian, okay.
– This guy's a comedian. Let's go. I wanna laugh.
– (Drew) Almost four years ago, I was on a softball team.
– Ohh, poor thing. – (Drew) …and hit me in my throat…
– (gasps) – (Drew) …damaged some nerves
in my vocal chords. – What?!
– (Drew) I started to do comedy as a way of, I guess, coping with it.
– Oh, wow. – (Drew) I'm okay with– with–
with my– with my– my voice, but I– I still struggle with some–
some things, like– like– like, I have the hardest time
at a drive-through. – (chuckles)
– (Drew) You know, 'cause– 'cause you– 'cause you–
you gotta say the– say the order fast, and you're– and you're–
and you're talking through an intercom.
It's like, I don't know why I– I– I would work there.
– (laughs) – (Drew) I don't know why I–
I– I would work there. – (chuckles)
– (crowd laughs) – Howie loves it!
– (Drew) I believe that you– you– you can turn
anything into a positive. That's why I'm here.
But I've come along some people who don't think…
– I love him. – (Drew) I did a sh-show one time
where– where– where a guy stood up and was like, "Hey,
y-you– you can't just make– make fun of disabilities
j-j-just 'cause you– you have one." – (chuckles)
– (crowd laughs) – (Drew) I was– I was like–
I was like, "W-well, d-d-d-did I– did I– I stutter?"
– (all laugh) – (Drew) D–d-d-did I–
did I– I stutter? – (laughs)
– (laughs) "Did I stutter?" Oh, he did it!
– (Howie) Comedy usually comes from a dark place.
A lot of comedians are depressed. I, personally, in my life
have used laughter to try to gain some happiness.
And because of you and because of this moment,
I wanna do something very special, something I haven't had
a chance to do. And I'd like to do this…
– Yes! (claps) Oh, I love that.
– Awww. – Oh, this is making me cry the most.
I don't know why. – That's so cute.
– Aww, that is so cute! I think my lash is coming off.
– That's so exciting for him.
– Oh my gosh. Oh, that's a five.
– That's a five. – It took a lot of courage
for him to get up there and do that. I'd give a three.
– I would give it a… three! – Okay, that's a solid four.
– Solid five, because it's just… it's one of the most beautiful moments
I've ever seen on AGT. – I'm gonna give that one
a three as well. – Four for me. Yeah.
Yeah, that was cute. – I'd give it a two out of five.
I thought it was really uplifting and powerful, but emotional?
Just a little bit. – You know what?
I haven't given out a five yet, so yeah, five.
Being able to… be in a profession that is
an uphill battle, it takes a lot of courage
and a lot of admiration, and I have a lot of respect. – (FBE) So finally,
many of these videos have gone viral.
Why do people love to watch these golden buzzer moments so much?
– I think these are feel-good videos. It makes you feel motivated
to do something, do something good
with either your life or help others.
– Seeing people feel good, it's addicting.
Seeing people feel good makes you feel good.
– It's kind of inspirational to see someone go after their dream.
And when they actually succeed, it makes it even better.
– People naturally like to see other people succeed.
And the tougher the process, the more excited and happy
for somebody you can be. – Such a cool moment to see
someone live their dream and live their fantasy
and be able to be on that stage in front of everyone,
share their amazing, cool, unique story, and then
get that golden buzzer, the confetti's falling
in slow motion. – We strive for connection,
like, human connection and emotion. And I think this is–
you can watch a two, three-minute video
and really connect with someone and hear a small part of their story
and see that triumphant moment. With each of these people
who got that golden buzzer, I'm sure there was years and years
and years of leading up to that, and that is a big pinnacle,
"we made it" moment that they'll never forget. – Thanks for watching
