Treviño, Martinez and the other musicians performed to massive acclaim from the crowd, a standing ovation and four yesses from the judges.

The 11-year-old soloist mariachi singer idolizes late Mexican legend Vicente Fernandez but Treviño is fulfilling his great-grandfathers dream.

“My great-grandfather, he recorded music in 1926 but soon had to give up the dream… not much money was coming out of it,” Treviño told the judges.

Notoriously fickle judge Simon Cowell, loved their performance.

“I absolutely loved this audition and I loved you. I’m still a little bit shocked that was you singing because your so young and your like a proper lead singer. You have a natural talent,” Cowell said.
