Klum began the praises for Kechi, declaring, “It makes me so happy to sit here and watch you on that big stage and fulfill your dream. Well done.”

Mel B added, “First of all, I want to say you were pitch perfect and you have an amazing voice. But more importantly to me, you are a survivor. You are an inspiration. You give people hope and passion and belief. And for that, you must go through. You must. I have to see you again.”

Cowell raved, “Tonight you came out as the person you’ve always wanted to be, with your song choice, the lyric, the performance.”
