Kechi’s final ‘America’s Got Talent’ performance: Plane crash survivor takes on ‘Empire’ song ‘Conqueror’ [WATCH]

Plane crash survivor Kechi performed Tuesday night during the Finals episode of “America’s Got Talent” 2017. As one of the Top 10 “AGT” acts of Season 12, Kechi has captured America’s heart with her incredible story of survival. This time around she took on Estelle‘s “Conqueror” from Fox’s “Empire.” Was it good enough to win the $1 million prize? Watch Kechi’s “America’s Got Talent” recap video above from NBC’s reality TV show.

All four “AGT” judges — Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel — stood up and applauded at the conclusion of Kechi’s performance, visibly emotional at what they’d just witnessed. Here is what they had to say:

Cowell: “Kechi, I just love you, everything about you. That wasn’t a song. That was an anthem. It really was, Kechi. Let me tell you something, we are only as good as the people who come on the show, and I believe that you define us, and everything I hoped and prayed this show would be, because you made a difference to us, to the people at home, I hope for yourself after this. You’ve become an artist not a contestant. You’ve been brave. Your song choices have been on the money. And the night you needed to do it, you did it, on the Final. You just did it.”

Klum: “Kechi, and I can only agree with Simon, I love you too. I love your performance that you just did, and let me tell you something, Kechi, I’ve been sitting here for five years and I’ve seen a lot of people come and go, but you I will never forget. I really won’t.”

Mel B: “I’m so happy that you walked onto that stage and entered this show, because you’ve inspired so many people, and you are loved and you are adored. And, you know, I was a bit worried at the start of this song, but you know what? It all came together when you hit that chorus, because that was so powerful and so moving, I was like, ‘Yes!’ So well done. Well done to you.”
