The comedian had shared a few weeks ago that he had auditioned on the show but what he had left out was just how well it went. Jonasi performed a 2 minute long set that had the audience in stitches and culminated in a standing ovation. 

The judges had nothing but praise for him and Simon Cowell actually stated that Jonasi was one of the funniest people the talent had ever had over the years.

As the judges finished sharing their views on his performance Terry Crews walked in, a comedian Jonasi had referred to as changing his life in the interview before his performance. Crews added on to the plaudits the comedian had received and then pressed the Golden Buzzer, sending Jonasi straight through to the America's Got Talent live shows.

America's Got Talent (often abbreviated as AGT) is a televised American talent show competition, and is part of the global Got Talent franchise created by Simon Cowell. A Golden Buzzer is a special feature on the show that allows judges to send an act directly to the live shows, bypassing lower levels of the competition. This season rach judge will have two chances to use it, while the host can only press the Golden Buzzer once.
