Luke Islam fans, rejoice: Your favorite 12-year-old singer from New York is finally returning to “America’s Got Talent” during Tuesday’s first live episode of Season 14. He hasn’t been seen on the reality TV show in over a month, since new judge Julianne Hough pressed her Golden Buzzer for the talented tyke following his audition of “She Used To Be Mine” from “The Waitress.” Re-watch Luke’s viral “AGT” video above, which is nearing 17 million views at YouTube.
Prior to pressing her Golden Buzzer, Julianne told Luke that she was “extremely flattered” he was an admitted fan of hers. “You have such talent and grace,” she remarked. “You have something so special. You have an essence inside of you that has given you a gift. I believe that not only are you going to become a star and get your dream to come true, but I don’t think you need to wait that much longer.”
Julianne slammed her hand down on her button, showering the aspiring Broadway star with golden confetti. “I don’t remember any of this!” Luke later exclaimed when he sat down to watch his Golden Buzzer video for the first time. “It’s very, very cool to just see so many talented people on TV. I thought maybe one of those people could be me, so I just decided to audition and look what happened.”
Luke’s Twitter account is already drumming up support by instructing viewers how to vote for their favorite singer: “You never know what can happen! Tune into ‘AGT’ this Tuesday and Wednesday and cast your vote for Luke!” Will YOU be casting your votes for Luke once voting officially opens on Tuesday night, August 13?
Besides Luke, there are six other singing acts performing live for America’s votes during the Quarterfinals 1 episode: Ansley Burns, Carmen Carter, GFORCE, Kodi Lee, Sophie Pecora and Voices of Service. They will be joined by five variety acts: blacklight artist Alex Dowis, danger group Bir Khalsa, dancers Emerald Belles, impressionist Greg Morton and acrobats Messoudi Brothers.
