This season of America's Got Talent has already showed us there's still a lot of untapped star potential out there but Tuesday night's episode might have had Simon Cowell's favorite performer yet!

While we've already been treated to the next Taylor Swift, and been privileged to see a 13-year-old SLAM Donald Trump during her standup act, there's nothing like an inspiration performance which is exactly what we got from Calysa Bevier!

Every year, America's Got Talent surprises us with an act we never saw coming — and this year, it's comedian Lori Mae Hernandez!

Lori is a 13-year-old standup comic who appeared on the hit talent show on Tuesday night and explained to judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel that she got into comedy because her father was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy and she wanted to make him laugh. Awww!

The teenager's set was great, but she REALLY won us over when she set up her big joke by saying her only qualification for being a babysitter was she was a baby once. The witty teen then took a shot at Donald Trump saying her babysitting gig is the equivalent of asking:

"'Weren't you the host of a reality show? Do you want to be President of the United States?'"

Ch-ch-check out Lori's HIGHlarious act (below)!

America's Got Talent brings out some phenomenally gifted kids, as we saw with teen opera singer Laura Breton in last week's premiere.

But this little ukelele player might take the cake!

Seriously, once Grace VanderWaal starts singing her original song, you won't BELIEVE a 12-year-old could reach that depth with her lyrics OR her voice!

And the judges agreed! They gave her a standing ovation AND the Golden Buzzer! Simon Cowell even called her "the next Taylor Swift!"

We think she sounds more like the next Regina Spektor, but we're in either way!

Between strange acts and surprisingly talented kids, the season 11 premiere of America's Got Talent definitely lived up to it's name!

Marking the return of veteran judge Simon Cowell, the national talent show kicked off with some impressive yet bizarre performances.

While Simon did assume his role of harsh judge, the music mogul responded favorably to a few of the more strange acts of the night — including one contestant who never spoke a single word!

Performing entirely with his mouth covered in duct tape, the contestant (we don't know his name because he never said it!) began "singing" Endless Love via puppets made out of oven mitts before transitioning into Lady in Red — with his very own lady!

Interestingly enough, judges loved the weird act — especially Simon, who called it "simple, clever, unique, funny and brilliant."

But the night's real show stopping act came from 13-year-old
