Avery Dixon was the young saxophonist who earned host Terry Crews Golden Buzzer in 2022. The talented musician finished the competition as a finalist in the Top 10.

Appearing on America’s Got Talent: All Stars to compete again, Avrey shares that since the season ended last September, he’s been touring the world, including far-flung places like Guatemala, Toronto and Berlin. “This tour is happening,” he tells the judges, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Simon Cowell.

Simon asked Avery about the neighbors who complained about his practicing at home. “If they are complaining, they’re drowned out by the applause of my new family,” he said assuredly.

The musician takes the stage with a confidence he didn’t show the first time around. “Hello everybody,” Avery introduced himself before launching into a high spirited and jazzy rendition of “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, “Welcome to the Avery Dixon experience.”

“You’ve given yourself a shot at winning this”

Afterward, the judges and audience are on their feet. “You, young man, are an All Star,” Howie enthused. “You stepped it up. You went from an amazing piece of talent to an amazing show.” Heidi said, “I can’t stay in my seat. I have to stand and dance. You’re doing all that to me. Simon declared, “I believe when you’re great, competition like this brings out the best in people,” He continued, “This was you at your very, very best.”

“You’ve given yourself a shot at winning this. You absolutely set the bar right now.” High praise from Simon, who did NOT use his designated Golden Buzzer on the talented artist. But Avery has one more shot to advance to the finale. Will the “superfans” vote him through?
