Emily West absolutely KILLED the competition on “America’s Got Talent” on Tuesday, during the first round of semifinals.

The singer, who blew away the judges in the quarterfinals earlier this month with “Chandelier,” closed the episode with a show-stopping performance of “Who Wants To Live Forever” by Queen.

The performance featured West’s powerful voice in a slightly new arrangement of the song, and the judges once again gave West a standing ovation.

Heidi Klum told her afterward, “You have that special, that told Hollywood glamour style. You have that special something. You have that special voice.”

“What can I say?” the judge went on. “I guess I have a lady crush on you.”

Mel B admitted that she was unsure West would be able to top her last performance — but she absolutely did.

“Bigger and better. You’re the person who keeps on giving,” said the Spice Girl. “Your voice is smooth and silky. I could listen to it all day long.”

Howie Mandel described West as “seasoned and iconic.”

“That was superb. This is what we’re striving for… Thank you fora great finale,” he told West.

And Howard Stern declared, “Now we have a true millon dollar act. This is a real singer. This is the best musical performance of the night. This is someone Ameica must vote for. This is a star.”

“She is stupendous,” the shock jock went on. “What a find. how lucky are we to have on the show?!”
