16 Year Old Cancer Survivor Wins Simon Cowell’s Cold, Cold Heart [Video]
16-year-old ovarian cancer survivor Calysta Bevier is the talk of the internet after her performance on America’s Got Talent.
Her pixie haircut garnered a comment from the panel and when she said “it wasn’t my choice” and explained she beat stage 3 ovarian cancer, the panel was won over. That set the stage for her amazing performance of Rachel Platten's hit “Fight Song.”
The crowd was on their feet as Bevier delivered a flawless song. Simon Cowell, known for being an incredibly tough judge for years on American Idol, was visibly moved, and he hit the Golden Buzzer after praising the girl saying "I've got this incredible feeling about you, I think everyone in this room felt it, you were nervous I could feel that. I predict great things are gonna happen for you. There's something about you.”
The 16-year-old is now going directly to the live show portion of the contest.
