During the live finale of America's Got Talent on Tuesday, contestant Brian King Joseph wowed the audience and judges with a sleek violin cover of Kanye West's 808s & Heartbreak classic "Heartless." Showing off his skills while toying around with multiple ways of playing on his violin, the violinist very clearly had a lot of fun during the show.
It's definitely a bold take on the song, but BKJ entirely makes it his own. His energy throughout the fiery performance, which can be seen above, is undoubtedly infectious. Out of the 10 finalists, he's one of five of the music-based acts standing, and he's the only one of which who doesn't sing. The 13th season of show is set to conclude with the winners announcement tonight (Wednesday) at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
Deadline reports that the Tuesday episode of America's Got Talent brought in the highest total number of viewers all season, jumping 16 percent from the previous week and posting its highest demo rating since June this year. In fact, the show managed to pull in a 2.2 demo rating, with 12.78 million viewers. However, it doesn't match the series high of 16.41 million during the 2010 season 5 finale.
