Victory Brinker, a young opera singer, is the latest contestant to receive a Golden Buzzer in the ongoing season of “America’s Got Talent.”
The 9-year-old created history by becoming the first-ever AGT contestant to receive a Golden Buzzer from all four judges.
Following a playful introduction, Victory Brinker took the judges by surprise right after hitting the first note. After delivering a powerful performance, the little singer received a standing ovation from the panel and a loud cheer from the audience.
A mesmerized Howie Mandel commented:
“I was not expecting that but you are angelic! I loved it, I loved it.”
Heidi Klum added:
“I loved it too. You have a beautiful voice, it was incredible. You are incredible.”
Sophia Vergara also agreed with Klum’s comment and said:
“You are a star! I think you have a powerful voice. It was amazing and I really loved it.”
However, when Simon Cowell’s turn came, the media mogul maintained a bit of suspense, surprisingly calling on host Terry Crews to join the panel.
After a close discussion, Simon stated that Victory Brinker would not be receiving a “yes” from the judges. Following a loud cry of disapproval from the audience, the media personality went on to reveal:
“We are going to do something else we have never ever ever done on this show before. We are all going to give you something special.”
After a small countdown, all the judges gathered together to hit the Golden Buzzer in unison, creating the most exceptional moment in the history of AGT.
Amid the massive applause and showers of golden confetti, little Victory Brinker broke down into tears and rushed into her mother’s arms.
