It was the season finale of E!'s "Opening Act," meaning there was one last chance to make somebody's dreams come true. This week, the selected artist had the opportunity to open for Lady Gaga's "Born This Way Ball."

"You have amazing stage presence and, most of all, congratulations," Lady Gaga told 25-year-old Von Smith. "It’s no small feat what you’ve accomplished."

Smith performed a Beyonce song, "Halo," as well as "Hopeless," and got a great response from the crowd and from Gaga. He took to Twitter during the show to reiterate the point of the entire show, and his experience with it.

"Dreams DO come true!" he wrote. Smith made it to the Wild Card round of "American Idol" Season 8.
