Putri Ariani made headlines earlier this summer on “America’s Got Talent” when she captured the hearts of viewers and earned the coveted Golden Buzzer from judge Simon Cowell during the Season 18 auditions.
As a blind singer and pianist, Putri has been Simon’s top choice to win the competition, and her latest live show performance on September 5th at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in the “Qualifiers 3” round proved why.
With her rendition of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” Putri left the audience in awe.
Simon Cowell revealed that the iconic band U2 had granted special permission for Putri to perform their song, making her rendition even more remarkable. Heidi Klum, one of the judges, compared Putri’s singing to that of an angel.
Simon Cowell expressed his speechlessness, praising Putri for her beautiful voice and rendition of the song. He took a moment to extend gratitude to U2 for allowing Putri to sing their song, acknowledging the significant impact it could have on her life.
Sofia Vergara was equally moved, describing the performance as the most beautiful thing she had ever heard. H
eidi Klum couldn’t help but be impressed by Putri’s angelic voice and wished her the best of luck. Howie Mandel simply summed it up as “perfection.”
Putri faced tough competition during the “Qualifiers 3” round, where she was up against 10 other talented contestants. Only two out of the 11 acts would advance to the grand finale based on overnight votes from the American audience.
Putri’s initial audition on “AGT” showcased her exceptional talent with renditions of two songs, “Loneliness” and “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word.”
Her memorable piano performance with Simon Cowell struck a chord, leading him to press the Golden Buzzer. Simon hoped that the newfound attention would help Putri gain admission to the prestigious Juilliard Performing Arts School.
As the competition intensifies, fans eagerly await to see if Putri Ariani will secure a spot in the grand finale. Stay tuned for more updates and make your predictions to influence the outcome of the show.
