This season of America’s Got Talent has already showed us there’s still a lot of untapped star potential out there but Tuesday night’s episode might have had Simon Cowell‘s favorite performer yet!
While we’ve already been treated to the next Taylor Swift, and been privileged to see a 13-year-old SLAM Donald Trump during her standup act, there’s nothing like an inspiration performance which is exactly what we got from Calysa Bevier!
Bevier, a 16-year-old survivor of stage 3 ovarian cancer took the stage to briefly tell her story and then perform Rachel Platten‘s Fight Song to which Simon finally used his once-per-season golden buzzer saying:
“I’ve got this incredible feeling about you, I think everyone in this room felt it, you were nervous I could feel that. I predict great things are gonna happen for you. There’s something about you.”
Now that Cowell has hit the golden button, that means all of the judges — Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Mel B — have used their picks — leaving only Nick Cannon who gets to press it for the first time this season!
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing performance (below) and prepare for some goosebumps!
If you’re as misty as we are, don’t blame us, blame Simon for being a bit old softy!
Don’t America’s Got Talent when it airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on NBC!
