10 Most Breathtaking Golden Buzzer Moments In Global “Got Talent” History

These "Got Talent" contestants earned the Golden Buzzer.

Contestants on “AGT” and other “Got Talent” shows around the world have one goal in mind when they step on stage: impress the judges and get to the next round. Typically, all they really need is a majority vote, but it’s always gratifying to get a yes from everyone behind the table. However, there’s one highly coveted honor that only a very talented few receive. Once per season, each judge may use the Golden Buzzer to put an act on the fast-track to the semi-finals, regardless of the other judges’ votes.

Getting one of the judges to hit the Golden Buzzer is a pretty big deal, which is why the aftermath is often very emotional! It’s not uncommon to see contestants and audience members weeping with joy as glittering confetti rains down onto the stage. These are some of the most memorable performances across the globe that have earned a Golden Buzzer.
