Singing in front of an audience is incredibly brave, regardless of your skill level. Doing it in front of a national television audience is even more courageous.

That's precisely what 17-year-old Putri Ariani did in front of a skeptical Simon Cowell on America's Got Talent, one of the biggest TV shows in the world.

Putri Ariani, a 17-year-old from Indonesia, was born blind. But that doesn't stop her. "I don't give up because I know I am invincible, talented, brave, and spectacular. I believe that everyone has potential," Putri told Hollywoodlife.

As she took the stage in front of a skeptical Simon Cowell, she proved it. The shy 17-year-old sat at the piano and began to play. As soon as she started singing, the entire audience fell silent, and she received a standing ovation.

Even the judges were impressed when Putri performed her self-written song "Loneliness." After she finished singing, Simon Cowell asked for another song, and Putri delivered an incredible rendition of Elton John's "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word."

The judges panel, consisting of Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and of course, Simon Cowell, were all visibly moved by her performance.

The stakes are high on America's Got Talent, but Putri Ariani showed that she has what it takes to shine.
