Simon Cowell hit this golden buzzer this week on America’s Got Talent for a 30-year-old cancer patient who goes by the stage name, Nightbirde. She opened the song by explaining her situation.
“Last time I checked, I had some cancer in my lungs, my spine, and my liver. It’s important that everyone knows I’m so much more than the bad things that happened to me,” she told the judges before breaking into an original song.
Nightbirde gave a show stopping performance on America’s Got Talent.
The artist sang her own original song, “It’s OK“. When she was done, she received universal praise from the judges and the live audience.
Like three fairy godparents, everyone imparted their own gift to the singer. Heidi Klum began by complimenting the artist’s voice, telling her, “You gave me chills. Your voice is so beautiful to listen to, it was beautiful all the way around.”
Sofia Vergara was misty-eyed during the performance. She called the contestant’s America’s Got Talent performance “powerful” and “heartfelt.”
Howie Mandel finished the trio off by explaining why he liked her so much. “When singers come on, I think about authenticity. When you feel it, it moves you. That felt like the most authentic thing I have heard this season.”
Simon Cowell even called what she did “stunning”. He thought it was a “casual” way of showing everyone what she’s going through.
She replied to the judges praise, “You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before you decide to be happy.”
Simon Cowell finished off the party with one final surprise. “I’m not going to give you a yes. I’m going to give you something else,” before hitting the golden buzzer to move her on to the next round.
The America’s Got Talent contestant then called him onstage for a hug. Nightbirde left the crowd with a little piece of wisdom, “I have a two percent chance of survival but two percent is not zero percent. Two percent is something and I wish people knew how amazing it is.” Wow.
