Tyler, 24, opened up about the tragic deaths of both his sister and grandson in his audition above Saturday premiere.

“Today is a special day for me, I dedicate this to my nephew who passed away this past April,” he began.

“He and his mother, they had a terrible accident. They were hit by an 18-wheeler and they died instantly,” the male singer revealed.

Later, in a confessional, Tyler added: “When Noah came through, he was one. He just started walking and talking.

“I never thought I would have to go through something like this with my family,” he admitted.

“Noah is like the promised child that I would say. When that happens, I will be the rock for every family, make sure everyone is okay.

He continued: “We have each other but lack that part. So how do we deal with that?”

“I’ll get through it, I can do it, but giving him a break is the hardest thing.

“Even though he’s not here, I believe he’s in a much better place and I’ll see him again.”

Back in front of the judges, Tyler revealed that the song he chose was the one he used to sing to his grandson when he would “swing him to bed.”

The contestant then sang a beautiful rendition of I Believe In You and Me by Whitney Houston, bringing Katy and the others to tears.
