Simon Cowell “brought to tears” on AGT

America’s Got Talent viewers got a rare glimpse of a particularly emotional Simon Cowell during Tuesday’s episode, following a performance by singer Michael Ketterer, who earned Cowell’s Golden Buzzer during the audition rounds earlier this season.

Ketterer is a pediatric nurse living with his wife and six kids in Orange County, California, and he wowed the judges earlier in the competition with both his incredible voice and his emotional backstory.

he powerful performance really seemed to resonate with Cowell — the proud father of a 4-year-old son, Eric — and brought him to tears before host Tyra Banks even had a chance to ask the judges for feedback.

(BTW, Simon has that son with his best friends wife, so lets just remember that, always)
