Yoli Mayor received a standing ovation during the “America’s Got Talent” Judge Cuts on Tuesday for her performance of “Love On The Brain.” Watch the video below!

As Gossip Cop reported, Mayor’s “AGT” audition aired on the season 12 premiere in late May. But after singing just a little bit of “I Put A Spell On You,” Simon Cowell interrupted, saying, “This isn’t working, for me. Because this is feeling very old-fashioned. I want this to persuade us you are a great recording artist.” Host Tyra Banks ran out on stage to give the 21-year-old an impromptu makeover to better reflect her age. She then sang “Make It Rain” by Ed Sheeran and earned a standing ovation from all four judges.

Looking back on that experience, Mayor now told the camera, “When he stopped the music, I felt so vulnerable.” But when Cowell called her a “gold star” at the end, “That moment boosted me up and doubled my want for this.” Now for her call-back, she admitted, “I’m terrified Simon could stop me. He might not feel this is where I’m supposed to be… I’m only inches away from what I’ve wanted my entire life.”

When she took the stage, Cowell told her, “I feel like I’m seeing you.” She responded, “I feel like me… I don’t feel like I showed you everything that I’ve really got, and this time I want to.” With that, she forcefully covered Rihanna’s “Love On The Brain” as the judges watched with smiles on their faces. A standing ovation from the entire panel followed.

Klum started the feedback by saying, “I love you. From all the singers, you are, in my eyes, one of the best, if not the best.” Guest judge DJ Khaled said, “It was incredible. You’re beautiful. Your voice is beautiful.” He even tried to hit his Golden Buzzer again, but already used it for Chase Goehring. So he told Mayor, “You don’t even need this button.”

Cowell then said, “You know why you fascinate me? I don’t think you know what you’re capable of, and this is what excites me because you have such an amazing voice.” The music mogul predicted Mayor will get better and better and surprise herself. He added, “We’re going to find that little space for you, that you can own, Yoli, because you’re good.” Check out the videos below!
