Dorothy Williams America's Got Talent Audition Video


Nick Cannon pushed the “America’s Got Talent” Golden Buzzer for 90-year-old dancer Dorothy Williams on Tuesday. Watch below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, the Golden Buzzer sends an act directly to the live shows. All the judges used their advantages (one each) during the audition episodes that aired last month. But for the first time in the show’s history, Cannon decided to get in on the action, too, during season 11’s last audition episode.

The host first met the senior citizen backstage, and she explained she’s been dancing since age 17, when she joined a chorus line and danced across the U.S. “I never got to be a star,” Williams admitted sadly. Cannon told her, “I deem you a star. It’s happening.”

And that was all before she even took the stage. Williams began by singing an old-timey song a capella, and Simon Cowell’s eyes looked like they were going to pop out. And that was all before Williams stripped to reveal a skimpier costume… with boobie tassels.

Cowell actually gave a standing ovation at the end, and Heidi Klum joined him. Mel B told Williams, “I have to say, you’re 90 years old — good for you!” Klum added, “I absolutely love you. That was really, really special.” And Cowell admitted, “I find you fascinating, Dorothy, I do, and I do think there’s an audience for you.”

Howie Mandel was in “love,” too, but his critique was interrupted by Cannon, who came out and told the audience about Williams desire to be a star. He explained that the judges can hit the Golden Buzzer, and now he was going to “break the rules” and push the button himself. Now Williams was officially a star. Check out the video below!
