Tears flowed as a cancer patient took the stage in “America’s Got Talent,” Tuesday.
Jane Marczewski, also known as Nightbirde, was the final performer of the night, and she left many in tears, including the usually stern Simon Cowell.
Simon was so moved with her performance he allowed her a ticket straight to the semi finals, bestowing her the Golden Buzzer.
At 30, Jane is a three-time cancer survivor.
She is a bit thin but she didn’t look sick.
It is as such that Howie Mandel was so taken aback when she shared that she has cancer in her lungs, spine and liver.
More so when she added that doctors have given only a 2 percent chance of survival.
“You’ve got a beautiful smile and a beautiful glow, and nobody would know,” Howie then told Jane who replied, “Thank you. It’s important that everyone knows that I’m so much more than the bad things that happen to me. … You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before you decide to be happy.”
On the show, Jane performed an original tune ironically titled “It’s OK.”
There was a long pause after she ended her performance before Simon gasped, “wow,” followed by the entire theater erupting in a standing ovation.
He then said, “I’m not going to give you a yes — I’m going to give you something else!”
And with that, he hit the Golden Buzzer.
