Heidi Klum’s Golden Buzzer pick Angelina Green, 13, was shockingly eliminated on the Aug. 30 episode of ‘America’s Got Talent,’ just ahead of the semifinals! The supermodel began to weep when the singer was cut!
Well, another one bit the dust during the quarterfinals on the Aug. 30 episode of America’s Got Talent, and this time it was a fave of judge Heidi Klum! Thirteen-year-old contestant Angelina Green was sent home after judges Mel B, Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel picked the amazing choir Greater Works instead of the young singer. Heidi cast the sole vote for Angelina, the little girl she had given her final Golden Buzzer to during the auditions round on the July 11 episode. Heidi was totally devastated by the loss of Angelina, who is being sent home just ahead of semifinals next week! Click here to see pics of America’s Got Talent‘s holiday spectacular.
Heidi broke down in tears when she realized her special pick had been axed in favor of the choir and is clearly distraught over the fact she won’t get a shot at her own Vegas act! In the last moment the camera went to her, she looked over at Simon and stuck out her lip and appeared to say, “My Golden Buzzer!” and had tears in her eyes. It’s kind of crazy that Angelina was sent home, seeing as her performance on last night’s show, Aug. 29, was so powerful! During the live show at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, Angelina belted out a cover of Sara Bareilles‘ “Gravity” that showed she knows just how to move an audience and can definitely hit those high notes!
Heidi spoke with HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about Angelina’s performance. “I thought it was a fabulous show, I mean the ending definitely!” she said. “Seeing Kechi was a very emotional performance and also Angelina, my Golden Buzzer, I thought she did a fantastic job. I am always impressed with children and how they can keep it together, I think she is a lovely girl. She has a beautiful voice, she was a little nervous at the end of the song, I won’t lie! I heard that too but she is incredible so I am hoping people will vote for her.”
Heidi also said she was hoping that wouldn’t have to fight for her tonight! “I might not have to fight for her to be honest,” she told us. “We will have to see tomorrow how it all goes and right now the voting begins and really until tomorrow we don’t know who goes through and who is the Dunkin Donuts save, we don’t know until Tyra [Banks] tells us. So hopefully I don’t have to choose between her and someone else! Someone else that I love too, but I always go with my gut at the end of the day because that is what you have to do because sometimes you feel the room and they clap for everyone so I always have to be like honest with myself and what I am thinking.”
