Dillion in the same segment revealed his motivation, “I want to be your son. I want to be your brother.”
Just Sam, a New York City subway performer, is wanting to show her grandma that someone from the projects can also have their dreams come true. She was very emotional during her first audition in front of the judges and asked to “do the train thing” to get comfortable.
