The Most Touching Times for Simon Cowell on America’s Got Talent

People who watch “America’s Got Talent” know that Simon Cowell has a soft side. Cowell first joined the AGT judging panel in 2016, and since then he’s shown many times that he can be sensitive and vulnerable. Here are Simon Cowell’s most touching moments with Contestants on AGT, from telling them to follow their dreams to not being afraid to cry.

The Song of Nightbirde Moved Him Very Much

Jane Marczewski, who performed under the stage name “Nightbird,” showed the world how strong she was when she sang her own song “It’s OK,” which was about how hard it was for her to deal with cancer. During her audition, her soft voice rose above the soft piano music. When she stepped away from the microphone, Cowell was left with his mouth open.

“Wow,” said Cowell in awe, and then all four Judges stood up to applaud her. Cowell not only gave her an enthusiastic “Golden Buzzer,” but he also got up on stage and gave her a warm hug. Once she left the stage, he told the other Judges, “God, that really got to me.”

When Nightbirde had to drop out of the competition because of health problems, she met virtually with the judges to talk things over. Cowell said, “Thank you so much for trying out for the show and singing such a beautiful song.” He couldn’t finish his next sentence because he was trying not to cry.

Marczewski died on February 19, 2022, after fighting cancer for four years.

He Will Never Forget Kodi Lee

Terry Crews and Simon Cowell sat together to discuss some of their favorite Golden Buzzer moments from the program. Unsurprisingly, the first name cited was Season 14 champion Kodi Lee, a blind and autistic young man whose musical abilities astounded the globe.

Cowell commented to Crews that Lee’s audition was “amazing.” “I have no idea what it’s like to inhabit Kodi’s universe.”

Cowell added, demonstrating his compassionate nature. This moment will be remembered for the rest of my life.

He Demonstrated His Respect for Mandy Harvey

Cowell and Crews also lovingly recalled Mandy Harvey, an 18-year-old vocalist who lost her hearing. “The fact that she was a talented composer. The fact that she was an exceptional vocalist. And she was a remarkable individual. It was everything,” stated Cowell. Without her, this program wouldn’t be the same.

Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8/7c on NBC and the next day on Peacock.
