I just love it when I see people from my home state getting attention like this on a national platform!

Patches, a 13 year old rapper from Portsmouth, NH, recently appeared on America's Got Talent, to showcase his flow for AGT judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Howie Mandel.

Patches got his name from his mother. Growing up, we was awarded many patches for various achievements. He should get the biggest patch of them all for landing on the AGT stage!

Watch the video below to find out what the judges thought of Patches, and if he got enough yeses to make it through to the next round. Also, re-live when fellow Granite Staters Recycled Percussion made it all the way to third place on season four of AGT.
