On Tuesday’s episode of America’s Got Talent, 13-year-old Toronto singer Jeffrey Li explained that, if he were to win the show’s grand prize of $1 million, he’d buy himself a dog.

“I’m an only child, so I’d love a companion, so I guess a dog,” Li said.

Li said he would buy a German Shephard because “it would play with me all day, and I would love that.”
