Ten-year-old mariachi makes it to “America’s Got Talent” semifinals

It looks like 10-year-old mariachi and fan favorite, Sebastien De La Cruz, amazed the judges once again and he will be going to the New York rounds next week.

The panel only sent 23 contestants to the next round.

The San Antonio native stood nervously in front of the panel awaiting their decision. Howard Stern looked at the contestants and paused and finally said the young mariachi would be going to New York.

“It means a lot, it means my whole life, that’s all I wanna do,” said De la Cruz with tear-filled eyes as he exited the studio.

El Charro de Oro is the first mariachi singer to ever be featured on the show.

With a big smile and even bigger voice he wowed the panel in the Austin auditions in early June.  Sharon Osbourne, a panelist, said she was not expecting such a big voice to come out of such a small body.

An0ther judge, Howie Mandel said he was a personality plus and added “you took the roof off the place.”

“My whole family, they love music, I just love my family, they give me the music and what I do,” said De La Cruz in the Austin auditions.

Another fan favorite, the Latino father-daughter duo, Jorge and Alexa Narvaez, did not have  much luck as they were sent home ending their America’s Got Talent journey.

The 7-years-old and her father touched the panel’s heart in the Los Angeles auditions, with their rendition of “Home,” by Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros. They were allowed to continue to Las Vegas but their adventure was cut short last night.

“I told Alexa like no matter what happens I’m really proud of her,” said Jorge Narvaez, 25, about his daughter.
