We've seen singers, dancers, acrobats and magicians on America's Got Talent.
But we have never seen a talent quite like this ...
Taking to the America’s Got Talent: The Champions stage earlier this year, wildly talented artist Kseniya Simonova - who won Ukraine’s Got Talent back in 2009 - quickly and fluidly animated a series of images using sand to tell a heartbreaking story.
"This is a story about a child who grew up, became a famous artist, and forgot his parents," Simonova explained. "I wish for nobody to forget their parents."
Simonova' tear-jerking performance took viewers on a journey from a boy's birth, through his childhood and his eventual fame, to the death of his parents.
Mel B, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Simon Cowell were all moved to their feet.
"In my opinion, you are one of the best contestants we’ve had over the years," Cowell marvelled. "Genuinely, to see it unfold in front of our eyes and your use of music and storytelling. It was fantastic."

"That was just incredible! Wow, wow, wow," added Mel B. "Everything that you do is just brilliant."
After each of the judges showered Simonova with praise, host Terry Crews stepped out from backstage and walked down to the judges' platform, making it clear that he planned on awarding her the coveted Golden Buzzer.
"Let me tell you something, I have never been more impressed by the ability to move people the way you did today!" Crews excitedly told Simonova after her breathtaking performance.
We could watch her artwork all day!
