Susan Boyle once again wowed the audience and earned Mel B’s golden buzzer on the premiere of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions”.
In Monday’s performance, Boyle performed “Wild Horses” by the Rolling Stones.
“I can’t think of any other contestant who has defined this show better than you,” said Simon Cowell. “You’ve made a huge difference in a lot of people’s lives.”
The 57-year-old Scottish singer was a viral sensation after singing “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Miserables on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009. She was passed through to the next round with a unanimous vote of the judges.
She eventually finished second in the competition.
Boyle’s debut album topped the Billboard 200 for six weeks.
Monday’s golden buzzer was a first for Boyle, as the concept hadn’t yet made it into the Got Talent franchise in 2009.
In “AGT: The Champions”, winners and finalists from previous seasons of Got Talent programs compete with each other for the ultimate Got Talent title.
In The Champions competition, only two contestants from each episode will make it to the next round. One moves on from the golden buzzer and another is selected by a panel of “America’s Got Talent” fans.
