melted judge Simon Cowell
's heart on Tuesday's episode of "America's Got Talent."
Cowell, the other panelists, and the audience were nearly speechless after the 30-year-old Ohio
native casually mentioned her devastating cancer
prognosis and performed a moving
original anthem called "It's Okay."
“Your voice is incredible,” Cowell said.
The often snobbish judge shockingly told her, "I'm not going to give you a yes."
“I’m going to give you something else,” he said, pressing the Golden Buzzer
to send Nightbirde (her stage name) to the live rounds.
Marczewski stated that she had a "2% chance of survival," but that "2% is not 0%."
