Arielle Baril America’s Got Talent Audition Video: Heidi Klum Uses Golden Buzzer For 11-Year-Old Opera Singer — WATCH!
Arielle Baril scored the very last “America’s Got Talent” Golden Buzzer on Tuesday. Check out the video below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, for season 10, which began last month, each “AGT” judge has had the opportunity to use the Golden Buzzer exactly once to send an act straight into the live shows at Radio City Music Hall. Howie Mandel, Howard Stern, and Mel B all pushed their buttons over the last few weeks, leaving Heidi Klum with the last selection. The supermodel finally made her choice on the fifth episode of auditions.
The 11-year-old Baril explained she learned how to sing from her brother, but gave no indication as to what her performing style was. Imagine the judges’ shock, then, when the Pennsylvania student began singing opera. The panel was stunned, and the audience rose to its feet before she was even finished.
Klum gave a standing ovation, too, leading Baril to burst into tears. The judge admitted, “I was like, ‘Is she singing playback? That can’t be coming out of her mouth.'” Mel B then said, “You’re 11 years old. I was not expecting anything like that to happen. This huge voice comes out of nowhere. How is that possible? That was a very special, beautiful audition.”
Howard Stern, too, called the performance “special.” “I see how moved you are by it, and we’re moved by it. To see a 11-year-old have a mature voice, it’s freaky,” said the shock jock. He added, “We’re looking for something amazing, and that was pretty amazing.”
“Wow,” exclaimed Howie Mandel. “You obviously have an amazing talent. You’re adorable. I want to see a lot more of you.” Klum wanted to see more, too, and went on to say, “I love this act. I really, really love this. A lot. And because I love you so much, that I’m going to send you right to Radio City Music Hall!”
With that, Klum finally pushed her button, and Baril began crying even more as confetti shot out onto the stage. Now she joins stuttering comedian Drew Lynch (Mandel’s pick), visual dance artists Freckled Sky (Stern), and singer Sharon Irving (Mel B) in the elite group of acts that get to skip the next round of competition.
