Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, January 22) — Filipino-American singer Angelica Hale once again wowed the "America's Got Talent" judges, earning her a second golden buzzer. 

The 11-year-old singer was the first contestant on the show to receive two golden buzzers. She received the first golden buzzer in the 12th season of the talent show. The second one was for her performance on Tuesday on "America's Got Talent: The Champions."

 

The prestigious golden buzzer catapulted her right to the show finale.

She performed "Fight Song," earning her a standing ovation from the audience and the show judges Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Mel B., and Simon Cowell.

 

"You are amongst champions. You show up and you lift the ceiling off this theater. That was your fight song and if I can do anything, I will do anything to help you win this fight," Mandel said seconds before he pressed the golden buzzer for Hale.

Crying tears of joy, Hale thanked the TV host, "I can't believe this is actually happening to me. I never expected this to happen. I wanted to thank you so much. This is a dream come true."

 

Hale, who resides in Atlanta, Georgia won second place during the show's 12th season. She was bested by singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne.
