Laura Bretan “America’s Got Talent” Video: Watch Semifinals Performance!
Laura Bretan amazed the judges during the “America’s Got Talent” semifinals on Tuesday. Check out the video below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, Bretan was Mel B’s Golden Buzzer pick during the auditions for season 11, stunning the Spice Girl with her stunning voice. The teen opera singer automatically advanced to the “AG” quarterfinals, where last month she ended up in tears after getting a standing ovation for her first live performance of the NBC competition. Now Bretan performed live again on the first semifinal episode, and to similar results.
Inspired by her late grandfather, the 14-year-old closed the two-hour broadcast by emotionally singing “one of his favorites.” The powerful performance led to a standing ovation from everyone in the Dolby Theatre, including the four judges. At first, Simon Cowell couldn’t even speak over the crowd’s applause.
“Laura, I know this was the best vocal performance you’ve given so far in the competition,” he told her, adding, “If you’re not in the finals, something has gone seriously, seriously wrong.” Heidi Klum said Bretan “hit all the right notes” with her “beautiful voice.”
Mel B told her, “Regardless of whether you’re a fan of this genre of music or not, what you can do, your vocal ability, is astounding. You could tear this roof off.” And Howie Mandel said that they can “feel” Bretan’s “heart,” and hopes that comes through to the audience at home. Watch below!
