Simon Cowell Breaks 'America's Got Talent' Rules For Victory Brinker

Bustle 11 July, 2021 - 03:12pm

Watch Victory Brinker deliver a performance nobody saw coming.

After working through nerves (she was “exnervous,” a mix of excited and nervous, according to the contestant herself), the pint-sized performer launched head-first into her aria, and it only took a matter of seconds for the auditorium full of people to begin cheering loudly.

The pre-teen chose to sing “Je Veux Vivre,” also known as Juliet’s Waltz, taken from the French opera Romeo et Juliette. It’s not an uncommon choice for those who know opera, but it was certainly unexpected for someone under the age of 10. Brinker, a soprano, knocked it out the park, and she didn’t even try to skip any of the high notes.

After several minutes of wowing the crowd, she finished her performance and received a standing ovation from hundreds, including three of the four judges. Simon Cowell didn’t rise, which may have worried some at-home viewers, but he was perhaps the most impressed of all of them.

After judges Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, and Sofia Vergara gushed over how “angelic” she was and how amazed they are at her vocal ability, it came time for Cowell to speak. At first, he didn’t seem impressed, and he shared several platitudes about how showing up is important and how brave Brinker is. He then asked host Terry Crews to come down to the judging panel to speak privately.

This secrecy, in addition to the whispering among the bunch, created a lot of tension, but it was all worth it. Cowell returned to say, “We’re not going to give you a yes today,” and before the audience could boo too loudly, the four judges and the host came together to hit the golden buzzer all at once. Cowell pointed out that this had never happened on the show before, making Brinker the first contestant to receive the honor from everyone simultaneously.

Brinker is now headed straight for the live rounds, and she is already a standout in the 16th season of America’s Got Talent. Now that she has made history on the show and accomplished something no other performer could on the program, there’s no telling how far she’ll go.

Despite being only 9, Brinker’s mother explained in a setup video that played before the child began singing that her daughter has been wanting this to happen for a long time. “All these years, Victory has been saying, ‘I wanna sing on AGT. I wanna sing for the judges.’” Now, not only has her dream of performing for the four deciders become a reality, but she has been introduced to millions, and this could be just the beginning for the viral sensation.

America's Got Talent: All About Young Opera Singer Victory Brinker

Screen Rant 11 July, 2021 - 03:12pm

Victory went to the America’s Got Talent auditions with her mom, with nothing else but raw talent and a dream. Little did the duo know that they were going to make history that night. After Victory’s stunning opera performance that granted her a massive standing ovation, infamous talent judge Simon Cowell also altered the rules so that all five of the cast could give Victory five golden buzzers.

The 9-year-old talent blew up on the internet and people had questions. A few things to know about Victory is that she went to the auditions from Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Apart from her singing, she also charmed Simon from the get go, saying that if she won she would purchase him a rainbow shirt with glitter on it, adding that he needed more color. A fine observation indeed.

And like many talented artists, Victory of course can’t just stop at one. She also loves to act and is credited in lead and supporting roles for  the films Helping Izzy, CLEAN, and Code Red, which are all noted to still be in post since 2019. Fans can also catch her appearances in NBC’s Little Big Shorts, Wonderama, and DreamWorks Trolls Video (German).

As far as her family life goes, the lovely preteen performer was born into 10 siblings, or as Victory sees them, her nine other audience members. She has expressed how she loves to sing for her family and has been doing so ever since she could remember. In addition her keen fashion observation for Simon Cowell and his need for a transformation, Victory is a fan of leaning languages, swimming, making slime with her siblings, gardening, just to name a few.

The Pennsylvania native has also performed in other stages such as Carnegie Hall, the Apollo, a handful of NBA games, and the Pittsburgh Pirates 2019 Home Opener. Seeing as Victory has been busy even prior to her audition on America’s Got Talent, it’s safe to say that she’ll be in the public eye more often in the coming years. She’s already gaining notoriety on her Instagram page, accumulating 11.2k followers.
