In order to get his big break, 22-year-old Bayley Graham auditioned for a panel of judges including Simon Cowell in front of a panel of judges.

It has been Graham's dream to perform at the Las Vegas strip for a long time, and he has been dancing since he was a young child.

At the end of the day, I just want to be able to do what I love and make money doing it, so that is pretty much my dream.'

In Los Angeles, he is pursuing that dream, and the judges have been very impressed with his performance.

As far as I'm concerned, the only thing I can tell you is that you absolutely undersold yourself,' said Cowell.

There were four yeses from the tap dancer that led him through to the next round of the competition.

The fact that I was able to get four yeses was definitely outstanding for me. I thought that I would be okay, but you never know with that show.'

It is no secret that Bayley is no stranger to the competition circuit, having won a number of titles throughout New Zealand. However, he said the judges in the United States are still intimidating to him.

It was definitely scary at first, but once you got used to them, they were kind and fine.'

It's not the first time that a New Zealand act has received four yeses. Back in 2016, Tape Face was the one who impressed the judges, making the show's finals, which led to a Las Vegas show which was attended by thousands.

'In order to find that next step, you just have to put yourself wherever you can in order to find it,' Graham told Newshub.
