Golden Buzzer: Tom Ball Wows the Judges with "The Sound of Silence" | NBC's AGT: All-Stars 2023

America's Got Talent: All-Stars Contestant Tom Ball has two signatures. The first, of course, is his incredible voice. The 25-year-old Brit has a mind-blowing range that allows him to cover everything from Stevie Wonder to Demi Lovato with ease and power. His second signature is his gorgeous, curly strawberry blonde hair. Luscious and wavy with just the right amount of bounce, Ball has a hairstyle that is just begging for its own shampoo commercial. Seriously, hair brands, what are you waiting for? Tom Ball's 'do is ready for its closeup! 

How to Watch

Watch the Season 19 premiere of America’s Got Talent Tuesday, May 28 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock

In an interview with Mirror, Ball said both his hair and eyebrows have been constant talking points in his life. 

"It was always more my hair people talked about, because when I was in school it was massive," he said. "I used to brush it, but that's the worst thing you can do because that makes it 10 times bigger. Students used to hide pencils in my hair."

In June 2022, Ball said he had no interest in switching up his look.  "I don’t really want to change how I look," he said. "I'm happy as I can be in this moment. And I like my eyebrows and my hair. So I'll keep the hair and the eyebrows just come part and parcel. And my family wouldn't let me change."

Well, it seems Ball has gotten his family's approval to switch up his look. He recently appeared on Britain's Got Talent sporting much shorter hair. See the edgy, incredible new 'do for yourself, below.

For the new performance in June 2023, Ball kept his hair color the same but cut down the length pretty drastically. It looks really good, and (of course) his voice still gives the same level of goosebumps. Long hair, short hair, or no hair, Tom Ball's talent shines through. 

For comparison, here's a pic of Ball's hair as fans know it:

Ball got his big break on BGT in April 2022, and he celebrated the one-year anniversary of that a few weeks back. "Happy Easter Sunday 🐣 and what a year this has been! 💙 I honestly can’t thank every single one of you enough for the support you’ve shown me over the last year!" Ball captioned a sweet IG post. "With so much more on the way… I can’t wait to tell you…. Here’s to another year full of adventure, and singing! 🥰 ."
