On the live finale of this season’s America’s Got Talent, contestant Brian King Joseph played an electrifying cover of Kanye West‘s “Heartless.” Originally coming off of West’s album 808s & Heartbreak, the classic single saw a sleek violin rendition by Joseph who showcased his skills with the multiple ways of playing the instrument. As one of 10 finalist, Joseph is the only music-based act that does not sing. Tune in to Wednesday’s live episode of America’s Got Talent to see if Joseph takes home the title. Watch his performance above.
