“America’s Got Talent” guest judge DJ Khaled hit the Golden Buzzer for singer-songwriter Chase Goehring on Tuesday’s show. Watch the video below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, the Golden Buzzer was integrated into the NBC competition a few seasons ago. Pushing it allows a judge to send the act of his or her choice directly to the live shows regardless of how anyone else feels. The main judges, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel, each hit the button once during the auditions, as did host Tyra Banks. Now during the second round of the reality show, known as Judge Cuts, the weekly guest judges also have the ability to award the advantage. Last week, Chris Hardwick used the Golden Buzzer for Angelica Hale, a 9-year-old singer with some powerful pipes.

Out of the acts DJ Khaled saw during his turn at the table, which contestant had the major key and deserved to move on to the quarterfinals? That would be the 21-year-old Goehring, who told the camera, “Performing a song that you wrote in front of all those people can make you feel very vulnerable, but original songs are where I shine.” He amusingly told the panelists that his song called “A Capella” wasn’t actually a capella, but just a song “about me.”

“There’s been so much talent here and it’s been so unique. I’m actually really nervous,” he admitted. But he pulled off the performance, which featuring a mashup of singing and talking similar to Ed Sheeran. Mandel and Klum even joined DJ Khaled in a standing ovation. Mel B told Goehring, “Your voice is good, you play guitar good, the lyrics, everything. I actually just felt like I was at your private concert.”

Klum said, “I thought you were fantastic the last time, you were fantastic today.” Cowell confessed, “Tonight reminded me once again why I enjoy doing what I do so much. The best compliment I can give you is that there’s nothing that I can tell you, because you’ve got it all happening.” And DJ Khaled told Goehring, “You’re on your way to be a star. This show and this stage is gonna make you into a superstar.”

And with that, he pushed the button. As the pair celebrated, DJ Khaled could be heard telling the up-and-comer that they’ll work together. “Unbelievable. I don’t even know what to say,” Goehring said afterward. Hilariously, DJ Khaled also accidentally hit the Golden Buzzer at the beginning of the show, when the judges were making sure their red buttons to X contestants worked. He hilariously played it off, exclaiming, “At least I know it works!” Check out the videos of his actual Golden Buzzer push below!
