9-year-old Pinay gets Golden Buzzer in 'America's Got Talent'

9-year-old Pinay gets Golden Buzzer in 'America's Got Talent'”

A nine-year-old girl from Atlanta earned guest judge Chris Hardwick's golden buzzer during the first week of judge cuts on America's Got Talent.

"Chris Hardwick just gave me the Golden Buzzer - I'm going straight to the live shows!" she said, squealing.

For her second performance on the show, Angelica chose to show off her skills by singing Alicia Keys' 2012 hit song "This Girl Is on Fire".

"I mean, I'm so blown away and you have these sneakers on, you look like this adorable little child and then you open your mouth and I'm like, 'How do you those pipes fit in that tiny body?'" the 45-year-old actor-comedian and CEO of Nerdist Industries said.

"Mommy gave me her kidney", Angelica said. She started singing at two years old, but when she was just four years old, she developed her double pneumonia after she got a bacterial infection in her lungs, according to her bio on her website. "I have a feeling we may be looking at a star in the future".

"And I'm in it to win it."

The 9-year-old from Johns Creek, who already made a big impression on the judges with her rendition of "Rise Up " during her audition round, was back on the stage Tuesday night for the Judges' Cuts round.

The Masqueraders, a musical act composed of three singers, were able to push through after competing against opera-singing driver Darcy Callus. "Golden buzzer!" by the audience.

Back in June, 11Alive spoke with Hale after she passed through the auditions round to talk to her about the experience. Twenty acts selected from the audition rounds perform each week, with the top seven moving to the quarter final round.
