Nine-year-old Filipina singer Angelica Hale from Atlanta, Georgia stole the show once again when she returned to “America’s Got Talent” on Tuesday (Wednesday morning in Manila).

During the Judges’ Cuts round, Hale delivered a stunning performance of “Girl on Fire,” earning her a standing ovation from the audience and the panelists.

Hitting every note of the Alicia Keys song perfectly, guest judge Chris Hardwick gave Hale the Golden Buzzer, sending the young singer straight to the live shows.

According to Hale, all her breath was stolen out of her when she heard Hardwick’s decision and all the golden confetti popped out.


Hale first impressed the “America’s Got Talent” judges when she performed her powerful rendition of “Rise Up” as her audition piece.
