It’s hard to tell what Jayna Brown was more excited about: advancing to the live rounds of AMERICA’S GOT TALENT or getting a hug from guest judge Louis Tomlinson.
Tomlinson, of One Direction fame, embraced the Baltimore teen, after emphatically pounding on his golden buzzer.
“It’s not just one thing with you,” Tomlinson told her. “It’s not just the voice. It’s not just the performance. You have everything and it is so infectious to watch you perform!”
Before the emotional performance of Andra Day‘s “Rise Up,” Jayna, 14, shared her story of being homeless.
But it looks like things may now be turning around for her.
As judge Simon Cowell declared: “You, young lady, have just turned this competition upside down.”
Watch the complete video above.
AMERICA’S GOT TALENT airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays on NBC.
