During the commercial break one of AGT’s host announced that he will find somebody from the audience who can sing and a certain young girl from the audience sings a wonderful rendition of the religious song Amazing Grace. 

One of the show’s most prominent judges, Simon Cowell hears the wonderful voice of the young girl from the audience and told his staff to let her sing on stage. 

Upon approaching the stage, Simon Cowell welcomed the young girl and asked her name in which she replied as Madison Taylor Baez. 

Cowell then asked Madison about her age which is just 11 years old and invited her to let her come to the stage and sing for the judges as well as the audience. 

Before embarking on the stage the young Madison asked permission from her father who readily agreed to let her showcase her singing talents. 

When Madison was already on the stage, Simon revealed that during the break they will ask somebody from the audience if they’d like to sing a song. 

He was literally just coming back in and he heard this voice, thinking, who the hell is that he saw this little thing in the audience and it’s her, Madison. 

Once again, Simon asked the girl’s name as well as her age and she also revealed that she came from Yorba Linda, California. She also noted that it’s always been her dreams to be on the show. 

Watch the Emotional Performance of Madison Taylor Baez:

The Golden Buzzer is a concept that was introduced in Season 9 of America’s Got Talent. Each judge may press their Golden Buzzer only once during the season. In Season 9, the Golden Buzzer sent the act to the next round regardless of the other judges’ votes; its main purpose was to break ties. 
In Season 10, the Golden Buzzer was upgraded to send an act straight to the live shows. This method continues on for the next several seasons. From Season 11 onwards, the host can use the Golden Buzzer to send an act straight to the live shows.

Right after the performance of Madison, one of the show’s judges Howard “Howie” Mandel, a Canadian comedian, TV personality, screenwriter, actor, producer and entrepreneur decided to change the lives of Madison and his father as he press the golden buzzer. 
According to Howie, Madison was so lucky and a wonderful singer, from being an ordinary live audience straight to the finals of America’s Got Talent. 
Madison’s father who is a cancer survivor for the last nine years introduced the young singer into music at an early age of three years old. She would then learned to play piano and develop her singing skills by singing hundreds of songs on shuffle.
