Another reality show opera singer is set to take the world by storm!

Andrew De Leon's stunning opera performance received a standing ovation from all three judges last night on America's Got Talent and had audience members crying, which was unexpected to say the least given his goth appearance.

Though his long black hair, black eyeliner and extreme contacts had Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel super-skeptical at first (host Nick Cannon even joked that he was "Criss Angel" during a pre-show interview), they quickly changed their tune after the note-perfect performance.

Even more impressive?

De Leon had never performed "in front of anybody" and is completely self-taught.
