8月2日、「アメリカズ・ゴット・タレント」のファンは、ナイトバード、サイモン・コーウェルのゴールデンブザー、そしてシーズン16で優勝した最有力候補の1人がガンとの戦いのために競争から撤退する。 「私のオーディション以来、私の健康は悪化し、癌との闘いは私のすべてのエネルギーと注意を要求しています」と彼女は当時書いています。 「今シーズン、これから先に進むことができないと発表するのはとても悲しいことです。」 「AGT」プロデューサーは、ナイトバードがトップ36のライブショーパフォーマンスの1つを取り上げることをすでに計画していたため、彼女のスポットを開いたままにするか、ワイルドカードで埋めるかを決定しました。彼らは後者を選びました。
Two weeks ago, “AGT: America’s Wildcard” aired on the Peacock network, with five also-rans duking it out for viewers’ votes. They were: singer Dylan Zangwill, magician Patrick Kun, singer Storm Large, comedian Mike Goodwin and singer Matt Mauser. The act who received the most votes was finally revealed on live television during the August 24 performance episode: Storm Large!
Storm stood out during her original audition for the sultry rock ‘n’ roll twist she gave to Frank Sinatra‘s “I Got You Under My Skin.” The panelists voted to send her through to the Judge Cuts round, where she was eliminated (off-camera). The singer previously competed on the reality TV show “Rock Star: Supernova,” where she came in fifth place, and appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2006.
“AGT” host Terry Crews recently checked in via satellite with Nightbirde, real name Jane Marczewski, during the August 11 results show. Howie Mandel remarked on her poise, beauty and courage. Simon explained that she hasn’t let down any of her fans and that she’s already won the show, as her audition impacted millions of people around the world.
“Sharing my heart with the world on ‘AGT’ has been an honor and a dream come true,” Nightbirde wrote on social media after leaving the show. “My point of view this summer has been astounding. What a miracle that the pain I’ve walked through can be reworked into beauty that makes people all over the world open their eyes wider … Thank you for all your support, it means the world to me. Stay with me, I’ll be better soon. I’m planning my future, not my legacy. Pretty beat up, but I’ve still got dreams.”
