Golden Buzzer

by Lucy Golub

America’s Got Talent has a feature called the Golden Buzzer. It is a special award given once per judge that sends the contestant into the later rounds and live shows. The Golden Buzzer is often awarded to young performers or specifically unique talents. It inspires awe based on ability and emotion because of the emotional response from both judge and contestant (there are often tears and hugs). Many times, the recipient has a story of strife or a motivational reason for being on the show, and the audience awards standing ovations with every golden buzzer.
