During Tuesday's America's Got Talent semifinals, judge Howard Stern named William Close the frontrunner, but it was 14-year-old Edon who stole the show.

The singer received a standing ovation for his rendition of One Direction's smash hit "What Makes You Beautiful." Following Edon's impassioned performance, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne were on their feet while the crowd enthusiastically chanted his name.

"That was amazing," Mandel told the young singer. "You are the best singer in this competition."
