In the latest episode of the NBC talent competition series, the British record executive presses his Golden Buzzer for a Poland girl, whom he dubs 'a total star.'

AceShowbiz - Simon Cowell made one girl's dream come true in the latest episode of "America's Got Talent". During night 3 of auditions which aired on Tuesday, February 14, the judge pressed his Golden Buzzer for 14-year-old singer Sara James from Poland.

For her performance, Sara covered Billie Eilish's "Lovely" which wowed the judges' panel, but it was Simon's reaction that left the biggest impression for the teen. "We've heard a lot of singers over the years, but wow," the British record executive said after sending her straight to the live shows. "You have a real star glow about you."

"This is probably where you dreamt of performing. I can remember when I came to America for the first time ... that was a moment I'll never forget," Simon went on gushing about the young singer. "And I want to make this a moment for you to remember forever."

Sara came to the United States for the first time to join "AGT". "To be honest, I'm speechless. When I'm thinking of it, I'm literally shaking ... I'm just so happy," she told PEOPLE after Simon pressed his Golden Buzzer. "It's something that I've dreamed of and it happened. It's so crazy!"

"In America, dreams come true. It's so amazing," she added. "[Simon] made this whole trip to America so lovely - and America's actually really beautiful, to be honest. I'm in love and I want to live there - but it was such an amazing moment and when I think of it, I just want to cry."

Simon also further explained why he sent Sara straight to the live shows, "I pushed my golden buzzer for Sara because she is, in my opinion, a total star." He shared that her story resonated with him, adding, "She flew across the world to audition on 'AGT' 'to see if dreams come true' - that really resonated with me, as 20 years ago I came to those thoughts as well. I just didn't have her talent!"

Also auditioning that night were Navy veterans The Brown Brothers, Australian lyrical dancer Max Ostler, sibling act Blade to Blade who performed dangerous knife act, ventriloquist Jack Williams, dancers Urban Crew from The Philippines, comedian Hayden Kristal and the men of the NFL Players Choir, who were all sent to the next round.

Nikki Bella and Brie Bella, meanwhile, made a surprise appearance by pretending to be Duo Ragdolls. They pulled a prank for Simon, wrestling on stage which ended up with them slamming heads against Simon's buzzer.
