Bronx-Based Dance Crew Gets Simon Cowell's Golden Buzzer on 'America's Got Talent' - Watch!

Simon Cowell has hit the Golden Buzzer!

The 60-year-old judge pressed the buzzer for the WAFFLE Crew dancers on Tuesday night (June 16) during the latest episode of auditions on America’s Got Talent.

Before their performance, the Bronx-based group of street performers and subway dancers opened up about growing up in a difficult part of the country, and how it brought them all together.

“We’re all from different neighborhoods in New York City, and where we grew up at was really rough,” dancer Tyree Sowell shared. “People don’t even make it past 25.”

“So we would put ourselves in the most safe environments, which were these dance centers,” he explained. “We would spend all our time there. And then we would take all these moves we have and bring them to the train for money.”

After their mind-blowing audition, Simon sang his praises for the WAFFLE Crew.

“I think something about your energy, from the second you came on, and your determination, was everything,” Simon said. “This was, I think, my favorite audition so far.”

Without letting any of the other judges say anything, Simon stood up and pressed the Golden Buzzer!
