Archie Williams took another step towards a long-overdue dream on the finale of Season 15 of 'America's Got Talent', delivering a gorgeous performance of The Beatles' 'Blackbird' and declaring to the world that while wings were once broken, his moment to fly has arrived.

Williams, who was wrongfully incarcerated for decades and prevented from achieving his dreams, is finally getting to sing his heart out and it's hard not to be drawn in to his message. Sofia Vergara stated this was the singer's best performance, adding his suits "keep getting better." Viewers agreed, with one stating, "His emotions are taking over here, but this is probably his best performance. He shouldn't have been here but he gave a performance worthy of this round." What an inspiration @Archieisfree. Never to give up! Send that message beyond the NATION!" Another shared, "#ArchieWilliams you are HOPE! MY HOPE! MY SON'S HOPE! God bless you!".







Williams's message is one of hope and it has touched viewers worldwide. "@Archieisfree deserves the world. He's free and he's in the #AGTFinals. Congratulations, Archie," shared one viewer, another said, "Archie, one of my favourite songs. So appropriate. Beautiful. Thank you," and one tweet read, "@Archieisfree has come so far!! I know it ain't worth it to say this, but HE DESERVES TO WIN!!!"







Some, however, did not think Williams delivered a winning performance. One viewer stated, "Unpopular opinion: I don't think Archie's singing voice is good enough to win the show. Yeah he was f**ked over, but that's not cause to win." Given how many agreed, this is hardly an unpopular opinion. Another viewer said, "Archie is there on the strength of his story. Singing is not his thing. Best wishes to the guy but definitely shouldn't win." And one stated, "Archie was wrongfully imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit. We get it. It’s a tragic story. With that said, his story should not be the reason he’s made it this far. His vocals are not that good and that’s the truth. Tonight, he was okay. Not good or great."






Whether Williams did enough to win the show remains to be seen.
