His mom raised 7 kids before passing away from cancer in 2007. She wrote each of them a letter. Samuel reads his out loud. In turn, he hopes to be a positive role model for his daughter. Another mildly amusing routine from Samuel. Mel calls him brilliant and amazing. “You won me over tonight,” says Heidi. She thought it was his best. I thought his Audition was his best, actually. “The audience loved you tonight,” says Simon. “You’re giving yourself a shot after that.”Howie thinks he brought his A game. Samuel wants to be the first comedian to win the show.
