Singers ruled the America’s Got Talent stage during the Tuesday, Sept. 12 show. Kechi moved the judges, including Mel B, to tears and Mandy Harvey received high praise from Simon Cowell when he compared her to Adele after she sang an original song.
“I think other people were thinking that,” Cowell told E! News after the show. “I had a feeling they’re probably thinking what I thought that it reminds me or it reminds them of the first time you heard Adele.”
Harvey, who lost her hearing at age 19, said she’s not sure what Cowell meant with that compliment. Cowell previously gave Harvey the Golden Buzzer during auditions.
“I’ve never heard her voice, but I follow her career,” she said. “It’s hard not to. It’s such an incredible honor to even be mentioned in that same sentence.”
Kechi told us she left everything on the stage.
