If you aren’t familiar with “America’s Got Talent”, then you probably don”t know about the golden buzzer. The golden buzzer is a recent addition to the series, wherein once per audition cycle, a judge gets to automatically send a contestant on to the next round. If a judge hits the golden buzzer, the contestant will move on regardless of how the other judges vote.
Needless to say, it’s a very special moment when a contestant gets the golden buzzer. It’s even more special when it happens for a child.
Grace VanderWaal is a 12-year old from Suffern, New York. She appeared on the show recently and blew away the judges with her performance of an original song. The judges were so impressed, one of them jumped the desk to slam the golden buzzer.
Watch her performance below!
