Five of last year’s “America’s Got Talent” Golden Buzzers have reunited online to give personal advice to all of the 2018 acts who’ve been anointed with the special honor. Deaf singer Mandy Harvey starts off the video (watch above), followed by neon dance group Light Balance, teenage singer Angelina Green, formerly blind singer Christian Guardino, and ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer. As you’ll remember, Darci Lynne ended up winning “AGT” Season 12 and has had wild success with her nationwide tour.
Will one of the current Golden Buzzers follow in Darci Lynne’s puppet-steps? As a refresher, the five Golden Buzzer acts for Season 13 are 15-year-old singer Makayla Phillips, 15-year-old singer Amanda Mena, 13-year-old singer Courtney Hadwin, singing father of six Michael Ketterer, and dance group Zurcaroh.
When an act receives a Golden Buzzer from any of the five “AGT” personalities — Heidi Klum, Mel B, Howie Mandel, Simon Cowell or Tyra Banks — that means they sail straight through to the live rounds. Because each Golden Buzzer video regularly goes viral online, that gives these acts a leg up on the reality TV competition once America gets to start voting for their favorites. Below, see the advice that each of the 2017 Golden Buzzers gives to the new class.
Mandy Harvey: “Remember to always be yourself. It’s the hardest part when everything is moving so fast to remain calm and be you. Make sure that with all of the business, all of the chaos, that you remember to have fun.”
Light Balance: “Remain confident. Put in long hours and hard work because this opportunity only comes once a lifetime.”
Angelina Green: “Make sure to enjoy every step of the road. I know you’ve probably worked super hard for this moment. So embrace it and enjoy it and remember to always be yourself, especially when you’re out on that stage, because nobody can do that but you.”
Christian Guardino: “Always remember the opportunity and to enjoy it.”
Darci Lynne Farmer: “Work hard and put every minute of your work and your ethic into it, because it’s all worth it. I hope you have a great time and have fun and I hope you do awesome. Good luck and I love you!”
