Amanda was 19 when she appeared on the 15th season of America’s Got Talent, but she claims to have been singing and dancing since the age of 2. She grew up in Colorado before moving to LA as a teenager. Amanda performed in multiple musical theatre shows before applying for AGT. In her audition, she mentions, “I represent the people that feel like they’re not heard or not seen. I want to help make them feel beautiful and powerful,” — and she executes this vision perfectly.

Covering her sports bra and yoga pants combo with a bold, fluffy vermilion coat, Amanda’s audition exhibited a shame-free attitude to beauty and size, redefining “sexy” on the world stage while serving glamour and absolute fearlessness.

With her mother watching through nervous tears from the sidelines, Amanda LaCount earned the respect of judges Simon Cowell and Sofia Vergara. Howie Mandel stirred the crowd with his comment, “I don’t know if I would go to see a whole show of you doing that. I don’t know if it’s spectacular enough to make it off this stage.” — Heidi agreed, pressing her red buzzer halfway through Amanda’s routine.

But these sweet and sour critiques paled under Simon Cowell’s radiant support for her vision of plus-size empowerment. He added, “I loved every moment of the audition. Your joy and enthusiasm was so contagious.” Despite winning three out of four “Yes” votes from the panel, Amanda was eliminated during the Judge Cuts.

Amanda’s 2019 audition has gained over 8 million YouTube views, launching her career as the body-positive influencer, hip-hop dancer, choreographer, and plus-size model she is today.
