'AGT: The Champions' Recap: Courtney Hadwin Gets Standing Ovation Even Before Performing

The episode sees judge Heidi Klum hitting her Golden Buzzer for one contestant who blows her mind away.

AceShowbiz - "America's Got Talent: The Champions" aired its second round of performances on Monday, January 14. The episode saw some past contestants returning to the stage and performing before the judges, Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Mel B a.k.a. Melanie Brown and Heidi Klum, the latter of which gave her Golden Buzzer to one act.

First up was ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer, who won season 12. She hit the stage alongside her puppet Oscar, offering a delightful performance as she sang "Proud Mary!". Howie called her a "seasoned professional," while Simon added, "I think you deserve to be the world champion."

Following it up was dog act Ashleigh and Sully, 2012's "Britain's Got Talent" champion. Sully is her new partner because her dog Pudsey, who accompanied her during the season of "Britain's Got Talent", died of cancer. Sully didn't disappoint though as she made Mel B "smile so big."

Another contestant from "America's Got Talent" season 12 also returned that night. Light Balance, who came in third place in the season, sought second chance, giving it their all in another epic performance. Simon dubbed it "sensational."

"Spain's Got Talent" champion Cristina Ramos treated everyone to an operatic version of "Bohemian Rhapsody". However, she put a rock n' roll twist halfway through her performance, much to everyone's surprises. "That was brilliant!" exclaimed Mel B.

Performing next was comedian Taylor Wlliamson. The winner of "Holland's Got Talent" season 5 did an okay job, though Howie noted that he's "seen better." That night also saw a mesmerizing performance by juggler extraordinaire Viktor Kee.

Season 13 finalist Courtney Hadwin then made an entrance, prompting everyone to rise from their chairs to give her a standing ovation even before her performance. The teen rock star slayed "Pretty Little Thing" as she brought back her iconic dance move to the stage.

Deadly Games, knife-throwing duo who is made of Alfredo and Anna Silva, later took the stage. Alfredo shot an arrow and broke a martini glass that Anna was holding before asking permission to use Heidi's phone. He shot the crossbow behind the phone by using only her camera as guidance. Heidi was completely blown away by the performance and that was enough for her to hit her Golden Buzzer.

Rounding out the night was Piff the Magic Dragon, who gave audience a good laugh with their hilarious performance.

Now it's time to reveal who were going to head to the next round. The first act to be announced as the top 3 was Courtney Hadwin. Later, Cristina Ramos and Darci Lynne Farmer followed in. However, there was only one winner of supervote, and that was Cristina Ramos! With that, Cristina is joining Deadly Games to head to the next round.
