Legendary America's Got Talent alum Tom Ball was busy the weekend of June 21st performing at the U.K.'s West End LIVE festival — and he took to Instagram to commemorate his particularly extraordinary rendition of the Les Misérables classic, "Bring Him Home."

On June 24, Ball treated fans with an Instagram snippet of his "Bring Him Home" performance that tore the house down. 

"West End Live was amazing!! 🇬🇧🎶," Ball captioned. "I had the best time singing this iconic song at the Westend's biggest event! ✨️ A massive thank you to Westway, my incredible music label, for inviting me to represent my album 💙 I hope you enjoy this small section of my performance 🎉🎙"

There aren't many songs better suited to Ball's talents than "Bring Him Home" — it's one of the best parts of one of the best musicals made, after all.

When he's not making jaws drop during surprise appearances on Britain's Got Talent or covering classic soul songs, the 26-year-old vocal sensation consistently tours. Ball has several European dates currently scheduled for the fall in support of his upcoming album, Curtain Call. (For now, American fans will still have to wait for Ball to take his talents stateside.)

Here's everything to know about "Bring Him Home"

It's fitting that Ball covered the song during the West End LIVE festival — after all, Les Mis has been the longest-running musical in the West End area of London. It's been continuously running since it premiered all the way back in 1985! 

"Bring Him Home" is an emotional roller coaster if there ever was one. The music was written by Claude-Michel Schönberg, with lyrics written by Alain Boublil and Herbert Kretzmer. The song was first performed on stage by legendary tenor Colm Wilkinson in 1985.
