Chris Hardwick, guest judge for “America’s Got Talent,” gave Johns Creek nine-year-old Angelica Hale a special “Golden Buzzer” to the live rounds on Tuesday night.
Hale, who got raves during her first audition, received similar plaudits the second time around after crooning “Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys.
The four regular judges had already used their “Golden Buzzers” during the first round. But since Hardwick was a guest, he got the opportunity to do it himself. He marveled over how such a big voice could come out of such a small body.
“You are unbelievable. I just feel like, Angelica, you are the chosen one!” said Hardwick, who is host of AMC’s “Talking Dead,” Comedy Central’s “After Midnight” and NBC’s “The Wall.”
Hale received a kidney transplant from her mom when she was five years old.
