Nine-year-old Victory Brinker really lived up to her name with her opera performance on Tuesday’s episode of America’s Got Talent.
Her little frame belted out ‘Juliet’s Waltz’ from the opera Roméo et Juliette, and she made history by earning four Golden Buzzers from the judges, as well as host Terry Crews, sending her straight to the live episodes, reported Today.
Hailing from Pennsylvania, she told the judges that she was “ex-nervous” – a mix between excited and nervous – but that clearly didn’t stop her from giving the performance her all.
The judges were left absolutely stunned. Behold Simon Cowell:
And Sofia Vergara:
Klum, Vergara, and Howie Mandel gave her a standing ovation, while Cowell remained seated.
But he was devising a surprise that would leave little Victory just as shaken as she had left him.
Cowell called over Crews and eventually revealed that he wanted to do something that had never been done in the show’s history, which spans back to June 2006:
“Turning up in terms of your career is really important,” Cowell told Victory. “However, we’re not going to give you a yes today.”
“We’re going to do something else we’ve never, ever, ever done on the show before. We are all going to give you something special.”
The suspense at this point is an absolute killer and you can only imagine what it must have done to that little girl.
Anyway, after a countdown, all the judges and Crews slammed the Golden Buzzer and victory was hers.
The performance starts at the 1:40 mark:
