Laura Bretan Earns Standing O on America's Got Talent

by at .

Can we please hear it once again for Laura Bretan?

The 14-year old opera singer first garnered national attention during her initial audition for America's Got Talent.

Due to her amazing vocals, Bretan earned a Golden Buzzer from Melanie B, shooting her directly into the live round of auditions.

So that brings up to Tuesday evening.

Inspired by her late grandfather, the young teenager wrapped the two-hour broadcast by emotionally singing “one of his favorites.”

Yes, it was another opera ballad.

But even those who are not fans of this genre had to be impressed.

The powerful rendition prompted a standing ovation from everyone in the Dolby Theatre, including the four judges.

At first, Simon Cowell couldn’t even get a word in over the crowd's reaction.

“Laura, I know this was the best vocal performance you’ve given so far in the competition,” he finally told her, adding:

“If you’re not in the finals, something has gone seriously, seriously wrong.”

Heidi Klum said Bretan “hit all the right notes” with her “beautiful voice.”

Melanie B then chimed in with the following:

“Regardless of whether you’re a fan of this genre of music or not, what you can do, your vocal ability, is astounding. You could tear this roof off.”

And Howie Mandel said that they can “feel” Bretan’s “heart,” saying he hopes that comes through to the audience at home.
