In a very unique twist on America’s Got Talent, the judges and host gave the first-ever group Golden Buzzer! Victory Brinker has made history after receiving a very special Golden Buzzer for her astonishing performance of “Juliet’s Waltz.”
One of the things that makes America’s Got Talent (AGT) a must-watch is the sheer range of performances. Singers, acrobats, comedians, and musicians all line up in their thousands to perform for the judges. The quality also varies a lot; there’s the good, the bad, and the downright bizarre!
The best part, though, is when a true gem emerges, and it’s hard to imagine a bigger or brighter gem than Victory Brinker. In the video below Victoria is only 6-years-old singing the Star Spangled Banner live.
The adorable 9-year-old took to the stage to perform “Juliette’s Waltz” from the French Opera Roméo at Juliette. Many adults struggle with opera, so to hear such beautifully executed vocals from such a young girl left the judges and the audience stunned.
Victory’s range and the heavenly tone of her voice are a marvel to hear, but it’s enhanced even further by her obvious joy in singing. “When I’m singing, it makes me feel happy, happy and happy,” she told the judges, and this is clear to see. Her happiness was also contagious as the judge, and the audience sat beaming at such a fantastic performance from this wonderfully talented little girl.
When she finished, Sofía Vergara was full of praise for her, “You are a star. I think you have a powerful voice. That was amazing, I really loved it”. The judges then went into a huddle to discuss what they wanted to do. When they emerged, Simon Cowell, a notoriously hard man to please, said something that made the crowd go wild.
“Victory, as I said, turning up, in terms of your career, is really important; however, we’re not going to give you a yes today. We’re going to do something else we’ve never, ever, ever done on the show before. We are all going to give you something special.”
With that, all the judges slammed their hands down on the gold buzzers at the same time, making Victory the first performer ever to receive this honour. Well deserved confetti rained down on her, and she received a very well deserved place in the live show.
If you’d like to know more about this special little lady, here goes! She grew up in Pennsylvania and has been performing for her family since she was a toddler. At the tender age of six, she discovered classical music and can perform certain songs in an amazing SEVEN different languages. She is already a seasoned performer, having sung at Carnegie Hall and basketball and baseball games. I think anyone entering AGT this year has got their work cut out for them.
