Angelica Hale got the Golden Buzzer from judge Howie Mandel on the January 21 episode of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions.” This sent the pint-sized singer straight through to the finals on this spin-off of “AGT.” That Angelica got the Golden Buzzer over the likes of 2008 “Britain’s Got Talent” winner Paul Potts told us to keep an eye on this tiny talent in the final.
Watch her performance of “Impossible” in the video above and then vote in the poll below as to which of the 12 acts you want to win the first season of “AGT: The Champions.” And be sure to sound off with your thoughts on the show and who did (and didn’t) make the final.
In our live blog of the “AGT” finale, we had this to say about Angelica’s singing: “The song provided her the chance to show off how big her voice can get, even for such a young singer. The judges were highly complimentary of Angelica’s vocal, but moreso admire her drive and fight to return to the show in order to win.”
Angelica first came to fame on season 12 of “America’s Got Talent” in 2017. After making it through the audition process, she faced judges cuts with the four regular panellists (Mel B, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel) plus guest Chris Hardwick sitting in judgement.
Hardwick was so wowed by her performance of “Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys that he hit his Golden Buzzer, which earned the then nine-year-old a spot in the live shows. She won over America with not just her talent but her determination. When she was only four, Angelica was diagnosed with kidney disease and her mother donated one of hers.
