After a standing ovation from all four judges—Vergara and Cowell, along with Howie Mandell and Heidi Klum—Donovan was advanced to the next round of the NBC competition.
“So, what’s the dream, Donovan?” asked Cowell. “The dream is to be a Broadway performer,” Donovan answered. Oh, Mr. Producer, check out the video above.
