13-year-old opera singer Laura Bretan earned a standing ovation with her moving performance of “Nessun Dorma” – and received coveted praise from Simon Cowell on Tuesday’s premiere.
“That just happened. I have never heard anything like that in all the years I’ve been doing this show. Seriously,” said Cowell. “It was unbelievable. What made it even better is the fact hat at you are such as sweet person. So humble. Not even aware of how amazing you are.”
Mel B went a step further, sending Lauren straight to the live shows.
“I think this that this show is going to completely change your life, and I’m going to change your life, right now,” the former Spice Girl said before slamming her hand down on the buzzer.
After the confetti settled, Laura was in disbelief over what had just happened.
“This has been a dream come true,” she said.
America’s Got Talent airs Tuesday (8 p.m. ET) on NBC.
