Nervous 16-Yr-Old Melts Judges’ Hearts, Then Wins Golden Buzzer With Unbelievable Motown Hit.

Only moments after taking the America’s Got Talent stage, Christian Guardino confessed to judges that he was terribly nervous.

The 16-year-old told judges he’d been singing his entire life, but that hadn’t quite prepared him for an audition as intimidating (and potentially life-changing) as this!

Simon helps Christian get comfortable, chatting, and even telling him to call him by first name, rather than “sir.” But when Christian starts to sing, Simon about snaps his neck whipping his head up in amazement.


Who knows what the judges expected, but they clearly weren’t ready for Christian to pull out a cover of the old-school hit “Who’s Lovin’ You.”

The Motown classic, written in 1960 by Smokey Robinson, has been famously covered by some of the world’s greatest recording artists, including The Miracles, The Supremes, The Jackson 5, Michael Bublé and many many more.

But Christian has no fear as he boldly belts it out, endearingly pushing his glasses up his nose between verses.


After the audition, Simon tells Christian he’s literally speechless. Howie tells Christian to make 1 wish, and he’ll happily grant it.

Christian wishes for the Golden Buzzer.

The crowd, the judges, Christian… everyone is cheering as Howie hits his Buzzer! Including Christian’s mom, who is an absolute wreck.


No doubt this talented young man will go far!
