Sal Valentinetti was Heidi Klum's "Favorite" contender on America's Got Talent...and if he was one of your favorites as well, get tickets now for his first performance in Philly - Saturday, May 20th at the Tower Theater.

This 21-year old former pizza delivery guy was a finalist on Season 11 of America's Got Talent. He started his climb by crushing the 1st AGT audition with his version of Frank Sinatra's "My Way" which inspired Heidi to press her one and only "Golden Buzzer," sending Sal straight through to the quarterfinals! His swing era big-band sound also won him a huge and loyal fan-base that continues to support him in concert appearances all over the country.

Sal fell in love with the great American standards that he learned at his grandmother’s knee, and decided to take his retro Sinatra/Dean Martin vocal stylings to season 14 of American Idol. Sal did well at the auditions but didn't make it to the live show.

Undaunted he tried out for Season 11 of America's Got Talent where he wowed the judges and the hearts of viewers everywhere.
