The pint sized singer really blew the judges away and Cox was especially moved by her performance.

"I just want to eat you up," Cox said. "You were so adorable and so cute and your voice is amazing. You are so talented. Thank you so much. I am really blown away."

As she was speaking, Cox hit the Golden Buzzer and gold confetti flooded the stage as the audience cheered for Tam. It was an emotional moment for the entire room, especially Tam's family, who was watching from the audience. As the little girl processed the moment, Cox made her way to the stage to give her a congratulatory hug.
