Simon Cowell Tells Nightbirde She's 'Already Won' After She Withdraws From 'America's Got Talent'

Nightbirde is saying goodbye to America’s Got Talent.

The singer who won Simon Cowell‘s golden buzzer, whose real name is Jane Marczewski, called into the show for the results show on Wednesday night (August 11) and opened up about stepping back from the competition series, as she continues to focus on her cancer battle.

Nightbirde spoke with the judges on a video call and shared a message of thanks to them and the fans, who have been rooting for her on the stage and off.

“You made the decision, rightly so, that your health is your priority right now, and I know the last time we spoke you actually said you feel like you let people down,” Simon told her on the show. “Well, I just want to say, on behalf of all of us, you haven’t let anyone down. Even though you haven’t competed, you have already won.”

Nightbirde added her thanks then, saying that having “the opportunity to have a moment to share my story…I think we’re witnessing such a beautiful picture of the human spirit and the triumph of the human spirit, and I think it’s restored my faith in humanity a whole lot to see people come together just over the fact that we all hurt, we all suffer and we all have the potential to overcome.”

“This is, I mean, the most beautiful thing that’s ever happened to me in my life,” she shared.

Nightbirde‘s golden buzzer performance has been viewed over 31 million times. She sang an original song called “It’s Okay,” and the impact has went global.

“There is no way I would have ever imagined that,” she shared. “It’s a song I wrote for myself in the middle of the night when I needed those words so bad and it’s beautiful to see the world welcome that song into their own dark night and I’m overwhelmed by it.”
