Edon Pinchot, the young Jewish boy who has made a name for himself on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”, received a wealth of support during his most recent performance in the $1 million competition, following a rendition of the song “Titanium” by David Guetta and Sia.

After the 14 year old Pinchot – who wears a yarmulke on his head – was done with his performance earlier this week, the crowd gave a standing ovation and the program’s 3 judges – Howie Mandel, Sharon Osborne, and Howard Stern – all voiced their support for the “Jewish Justin Bieber”.

“You hit every single note,” Osborne said.

This is the second consecutive time Pinchot has chosen a song originally done by David Guetta, following his rendition last week of “Without You”, which propelled him into the finals round.

“Did you get a standing ovation at your bar mitzvah,” Mandel asked Pinchot following his most recent performance.

“Nothing like this,” Pinchot replied.

Mandel then told the 14 year old, “Jew are terrific”.

Voting is now up to the fans, which can vote through text message and on the web.
