GINATILAN, CEBU — America’s Got Talent golden buzzer Jane Marczewski, also known as Nightbirde, virtually returned to America’s Got Talent during the competition’s results show, on Wednesday, August 11, 2021, to thank judges and fans.
The 30-year-old singer-songwriter, previously announced her withdrawal from the competition to focus on her health amid her cancer battle.
AGT judge Simon Cowell said Nightbirde made the right decision to focus on her recovery.
“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. 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,” Cowell told Nightbirde.
She thanked the judges “for the opportunity to have a moment to share” her 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,” Nightbirde said.
Nightbirde got her golden buzzer from Cowell during her inspirational audition which supposedly advances her into the competition’s live shows.
Nightbirde’s golden buzzer performance went viral as she sang an original song, ‘It’s Ok’, which was inspired by her life story as she battled cancer in the lungs, spine, and liver.
“I have a 2% chance of survival but 2% isn’t 0%. Two percent is something and I wish people knew how amazing it is,” she said during the audition.
