When Laura Bretan took the stage, the judges didn’t expect much from the tiny 13-year-old. But she was about to unleash her undeniable God-given gift that left everyone in the room speechless.
Laura is an opera singer, and a phenomenal one at that. However, she was visibly nervous to audition for this season’s first round of “America’s Got Talent,” especially since it’s Simon Cowell’s first season as a judge. Yikes!
But Laura’s audition went so well that Mel B. eagerly pressed season 11′s first Golden Buzzer — which means Laura will be sent straight through to the live semi-finals regardless of the opinions of the other three judges. But it looks like the other judges take no issue whatsoever with Mel B’s decision. In fact, Simon offered perhaps the most complimentary comment any contestant has everreceived! “That didn’t just happen,” Simon said in disbelief.
“I’m thinking to myself, “If she starts to sing, this is not gonna work.’ And then that just happened. I have never heard anything like that in all the years I’ve been doing this show. Seriously.”
