America’s Got Talent: Madison Baez Taylor, 11, gets Golden Buzzer after singing from the audience

Howie Mandel hit his Golden Buzzer for Madison Baez Taylor on Tuesday’s episode of America’s Got Talent on NBC sending her straight to the live shows.

The 11-year-old singer from Yorba Linda, California, was planted in the audience and belted out ‘Amazing Grace,’ shocking the auditorium and judges with her voice during a break in taping.

Simon Cowell, 62, who didn’t know the crew had purposefully put Madison in the audience, told the young singer to come to the stage.

The audience also chanted for her to sing ‘on the stage.’ 

When she got up, Madison said it had always been a dream to be on the AGT stage and cried right before she sang the song again.

‘Incredible,’ host Terry Crews, 53, said when she finished.

‘I’m not kidding but in all the years we’ve ever done this has never actually happened before,’ said Simon, who was wearing a splint on his wrist. ‘I normally leave during the break because people do sing. So this is actually the opposite. It actually brought me back into the room.’
