The young violinist and cancer survivor from Raleigh finished third Monday night on America's Got Talent: The Champions.

Tyler Butler-Figeroa wowed AGT audiences last summer, finishing in the top 10 and capturing hearts with his enthusiastic play and huge smile.

He did even better in The Champions up against acts from around the world, first making the cut to join five others on the season finale and ultimately finishing in third place.

In The Champions, the final ranks were chosen by AGT superfans.

The judges told Tyler that he has an amazing career ahead of him.

After the show he posted a video on Facebook thanking his mother, brother, uncle and doctors.
