There are only a few Golden Buzzers left on America’s Got Talent, so only select acts will be granted the coveted reward. For the June 29 episode, quick-change artist Lea Kyle is the lucky recipient. Lea is so “excited” to meet Heidi Klum, a.k.a. the “queen of fashion.” Lea’s boyfriend actually auditioned for AGT, and when he brought her out as part of his act, that was her first time on stage.
