Golden Buzzer Winner
Nightbirde wowed the judges and fans worldwide with her earnest performance of her original composition last year. Not even notoriously brutal judge Simon Cowell was immune from the sincerity of her performance. She famously said, “You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before you decide to be happy.”
After paying Marczewski a compliment, Cowell awarded her a golden buzzer. That meant she would automatically advance to the next round of the competition. She ultimately had to drop out because of her health.
Marczewski said in a virtual interview aired on America’s Got Talent that it was “beautiful to see the world welcome that song into their own dark night.”
Jane “Nightbirde” Marczewski passed away after a long battle with breast cancer. She gained prominence last year when she performed her original composition “It’s OK” on America’s Got Talent. The audience and judge Simon Cowell gave her a standing ovation for her performance. Cowell awarded her a golden buzzer advancing her to the next round of the competition. She was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in 2017 but it went into remission a couple of times.
