Tilman continues to sing:
“I learned to love all of Hollywood money
You came along and you moved me honey
I changed my mind, looking fine
Goodness gracious great balls of fire”
Fifteen seconds later, two judges hit the buzzer and proclaimed the young Tilman a master of the art. And the third judge is not far behind…
With all judges excited about the teen’s performance, the young man can relax – and this makes him even better. The camera pans through the audience and shows people dancing to the popular song.
“You kissed me baby, woo, it feels good
Hold me baby, learn to let me love you like a lover should
You’re fine, so kind
I’m a nervous world that your mine mine mine mine
While two judges dance, Tilman goes on a raging piano solo. At the 1:18-mark, he actually lifts his foot up and plays the notes with the heel of his shoe!
Then he brings it back to the lyrics of the amazing hit song without ever missing a beat:
“I cut my nails and I twiddle my thumbs
I’m really nervous but it sure is fun
Come on baby, you drive me crazy
Goodness gracious great balls of fire
