Billy Gilman soared on The Voice Monday, hitting all the right notes to guarantee him a spot in the Top 12.

During season 11’s first round of live performances, Gilman sang Roy Orbison’s “Crying,” an emotional ballad that gave him plenty of opportunities to show off his powerful range.

“Now you’re gone,” he crooned as the crowd cheered him on throughout his performance, which was trending on YouTube Tuesday morning. “And from this moment on, I’ll be crying.”

Alongside Josh Gallagher, Gilman made it into America’s top two on coach Adam Levine’s team, securing his spot in the Top 12. Meanwhile, Brendan Fletcher became the coach’s choice.

He went on to wow the judges again with a classic, having won the Michael Jackson battle thanks to his moving performance of “Man in the Mirror” in October.

The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
