Look out, John Mayer.

Paul Thomas Mitchell was introduced to the world on America's Got Talent last night, sharing both his story of personal triumph and an original song... and leaving judges and viewers in absolute awe.

The 20-year old was abandoned by his mother and dealt with a drug-addicted family, but he poured every ounce of that story into his rendition of "My Life," breaking down as panelists heaped him with praise.

“I wanna come and hug you!” Heidi Klum cried, meaning Mitchell has pretty much already won.

Watch his audition now and compare it with another early AGT favorite: Anna Christine.
