"America's Got Talent" just premiered its second episode of Season 15 on Tuesday night, and once again, we were treated to a stellar round of incredible auditions and some ridiculously bad performances.

"Just shut your eyes for a moment and listen to her", Simon Cowell told fellow judge, Sofia Vergara, as the Canadian began to sing.

Vergara just gave Roberta Battaglia a boost in her journey towards her dream. Roberta from Toronto, Canada, a humble young vocalist with a powerhouse voice, took theAmerica's Got Talent stage and delivered a performance of "Shallow" by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper for AGT judges Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, and newcomer Sofia Vergara.

When the judges asked Battaglia what she would do with the show's $1 million prize, she said she'd like to buy a new dog.

"I didn't know whether to laugh, cry ― it was an fantastic moment", Battaglia told "Entertainment Tonight Canada". "I thought she was unique".

All the judges were shocked when they learned about Battaglia's age.

"It was fantastic. It was breathtaking", judge Sofia Vergara says.

"It's awesome! It's fantastic what you just did!"

"It's so lovely", Vergara added.

After receiving a glass of water to calm her down, Roberta stepped up and delivered the performance of the year on the popular show. "It wasn't someone behind you?" It's by being happy and successful, you know that.

Battaglia then explained that she's been bullied in the past, but the former American Idol judge was quick to offer her some words of encouragement.

Spoiler alert! This story contains details from the June 2 episode of "America's Got Talent". She's an insanely talented 10-year-old. Simon Cowell joked after her performance.

Last week, Terry gave his one Golden-Buzzer opportunity to the Voices of Our City Choir from San Diego, an adult choir comprised of homeless people of different ages, backgrounds and races. "It's impossible to sing like that at 10 years old". "And you know what?" Vergara adds, stands and slams the buzzer.

"Let's see who's going to bully you after this", the ex-"Modern Family" star said as she pushed the Golden Buzzer to vault Battaglia directly into the live rounds.
