America’s Got Talent” is always something of a freak show but one auditioner took it to a new level on Tuesday’s second episode of the season.

A 21-year-old street dancer named “Turf,” who describes himself as “an extreme hip-hop contortionist dancer,” put the Ow! in Wow! during the San Francisco leg of auditions during a twisted (literally) performance that was at once amazing and cringe-inducing.

But things went from Ow! to Awwwwe when the homeless dancer began to cry after the crowd went wild, saying the emotional moment was “a dream come true.”

“You are a true original,” an impressed Howard Stern said, while Howie Mandel commended him, saying his life was about to change.
