A year ago, “America’s Got Talent” judge Mel B saw her Golden Buzzer act Darci Lynne Farmer win season 12, taking home a cool $1 million and a contract to headline at a Las Vegas casino. The act that Mel B singled out for such special treatment this year, Amanda Mena, was eliminated in the semi-finals two weeks ago. This one-time Spice Girl must now sit and stew as she watches the Golden Buzzer acts of two of her rival judges — Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel — as well as host Tyra Banks take to the stage on Tuesday’s “AGT” final.
Simon and Howie both backed singers: father of six Michael Ketterer and 13-year-old English songbird Courtney Hadwin respectively. Tyra was won over by dance troupe Zurcaroh. Do you think one of this trio of talents will take the season 13 title?
