A nine-year-old opera singer by the name of Victory Brinker made history last night on America’s Got Talent. After blowing away the judges with her performance of, “Juliet‘s Waltz” they called a huddle with host Terry Crews and all five of them decided to push the Golden Buzzer, sending her straight into the live shows. Before Victory made her way onto the stage, a bird was flying around the theater, finding a place to watch. “That’s a lucky sign,” Simon Cowell remarked. After her performance, the bird joined her on stage, “she came to visit you, Victory… She came and sat there for you,” Sofia Vergara exclaimed. Her performance is currently trending on YouTube at #23 and has been viewed over 3.1 million times. Watch the incredible video below and scroll down to learn more about Victory:
