10-Year-Old ‘AGT’ Opera Singer Gets the Golden Buzzer From Jay Leno!

By Jeff Mazzeo

It’s not over till the 10-year-old sings!

That was the case for Emanne Beasha when she nailed her “Judge Cuts” audition for “America’s Got Talent” so hard that guest judge, Jay Leno gave her the Golden Buzzer.

Having already made it through one audition, Tuesday's show was the deciding moment for young Emanne to find out if she would be going through to the live shows, at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

She performed the classic Italian song, “Caruso,” and earned a standing ovation from the judges.

“I feel like I’m the witness to something extremely special,” Jay Leno said in a heartfelt moment he shared with Beasha. “At some point in my career people will say, ‘What do you remember most?’ I remember hitting the Golden Buzzer.”


Emanne’s face lit up as she jumped for joy while the confetti rained down from the ceiling.

Leno was not the only judge who was impressed. The regular judges on the panel were floored by the small girl with the powerful pipes.

“You show them how it’s done!” Howie Mandel exclaimed.

“To have a voice like this is not something you can train to get, it generally is a gift,” Simon Cowell told the young star.


Leno made his way on stage and gave the girl a big hug and it was especially emotional when Emanne’s mother joined her onstage.

The young star got a pass to the live shows, but this year's competition has a lot of great talent so we will have to see if she can outlast the competition.

"AGT" airs Tuesdays at 8 PM.
