America’s Got Talent Season 12 premiered its first episode on 30th of May and it blew our minds away! The auditions broke all its previous records and we got to see some of the best performances in the show’s history.
First of all, our favorite host is back with a bang! Tyra takes over the ex-presenter Nick Cannon and got a standing ovation from the audience the moment she was introduced. High-fiving the audience, she joins the panel – Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Simon Cowel.
The auditions started with a 21-years-old songstress, who took the stage in a cocktail gown and diamond jewels. The moment she stepped on stage, she had to face critic. Cowell said her stage presence wasn’t working. Gah… how rude of him! With the help of Banks, she took her heels off and let her amazing voice sparkle with Ed Sheeran’s track “Let it Rain” that astonished the audience.
Later came a brother and a sister that took duo salsa to a whole new insane level. We got to experience card tricks that changed our conception of prestidigitation; voice of 12-year-old boy that melted our hearts and brought tears in judges’ eyes; the operatic sad clown who is capable to win millions of hearts in theatre; and death defying escape artist who was buried alive.
The night, however, belonged to schoolgirl ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer who wowed the judges and got the Golden Buzzer from Mel B and an automatic place in the live show.
