Donovan Hoffer managed to impress Simon Cowell and the other judges recently on America’s Got Talent. The celebrity judge had doubts about his performance, but it was evident that Donovan can become a big star in the music industry.

Last week, Tory Vagasy was chosen for the next round despite some flaws in her performance. Donovan Hoffer could prove to be a tough competitor for her. The singer even said that he dreams of becoming a Broadway performer.

“Think of Me” from The Phantom of the Opera can be sung only by experienced people. The endnote is iconic and has been spoiled by other artists before. But Donovan maintained the originality of the song, and Simon Cowell loved his vocal range.
