Lea Kyle, a talented French artist who changes quickly, is the latest contestant to receive a Golden Buzzer on “America’s Got Talent”. The performer also received a standing ovation from the four judges after delivering a phenomenal act of rapid change.
After loud cheers from the audience, Heidi Klum declared Lea Kyle her Golden Buzzer competitor for the season. As the 25-year-old performer bowed down with tears of joy, a shower of golden confetti marked her entry straight into the live shows.
During his act, Kyle magically switched from one outfit to another in a split second, leaving the judges mesmerized in their seats. Right after the performance, Howie Mandel mentioned:
“We’ve seen artists change quickly on this show, but I’ve never seen a better one than you. Seeing the outfit fly off the hanger at you is magical and your presentation is beautiful.”
Judge Sofia Vergara added:
âI am so in shock! You were having fun while you were doing it. It was wonderful.”
Media mogul Simon Cowell complimented:
âI think when we see this kind of act, there are always two people normally in the act and the music is terrible but it was very, very cool and you have an incredible showmanship. It was world class!
Finally, Heidi Klum shared that Lea Kyle was doing âreal magicâ before hitting the Golden Buzzer for the night:
“He loved it too, you were doing real magic.” It was absolutely amazing and spotless. You know how much I love fashion, and I feel like we’ve never really had someone as good as you, so I think you should go straight to the shows.
To the applause of the audience, Heidi Klum took the stage to congratulate a very moved Lea Kyle.
