Last month, Kechi Okwuchi stunned the judges with her audition performance for America’s Got Talent: The Champions. Her rendition of Calum Scott’s “You Are The Reason” earned her a golden buzzer from the show’s toughest judge, Simon Cowell.
Thanks to the golden buzzer, Kechi Okwuchi got a straight ticket to the finals, where she delivered another flawless performance. The overall response to her performance at the auditions certainly helped boost her confidence, as she described the golden buzzer as the most validating thing that has ever happened to her.
For the finale, she chose to sing Sia’s “Opportunity”, another performance that left the audience on their feet at the end of her set. In spite of this, not all the judges were impressed with her rendition of the song, as Mel B criticised her performance. Nevertheless, she took Mel B’s feedback like a champ saying:
“I always appreciate honesty, that’s the best way to grow as an artist, so thank you”.
Like always, we’re rooting for Kechi, and hope she emerges the winner of the competition when the results are revealed next week. Until then, watch her moving performance below:
