Samantha Johnson closed “America’s Got Talent” with such a strong performance on Tuesday that Howie Mandel said she “owned the show.” Watch below!

As Gossip Cop reported, Johnson first wowed the judges during her initial audition, which aired last month, and received a standing ovation for “Lay Me Down.” She survived the next round, “Judge Cuts,” and now this was first chance to prove she could handle the live shows at Radio City Music Hall. But, belting out the classic “California Dreamin,” Johnson actually showed she’s ready for a record contact… like immediately.

After a standing ovation, Mel B could hardly collect her thoughts, just exclaiming, “Wow,” and “wowza,” and “oh my gosh.” But she went on to tell Johnson, “You’re an already-made pop star superstar. Your voice is so powerful and soulful. I could go on forever. Brilliant.”

Mandel said “ditto,” and added, “You look beautiful. You sound beautiful. You own the stage. You own this show… You, young lady, are a star.” Howard Stern admitted to being unsure about Johnson during the previous round, confessing he wasn’t sure if she “had it.” Now, however, he was believer, telling the contestant, “You came to Radio City Hall and, as we say, stepped it up. Well done.”

Heidi Klum also went extremely far with her praise. She told Johnson, “You are a powerhouse, and I do believe you are the best singer we have on the show.” Check out the full video below, and tell us if you think Johnson is this year’s best music act!
