The golden buzzer is a big deal

The Golden buzzer is a really big deal in AGT. Each judge gets to press it once during the season. Once pressed for, the act that got this will go straight up to the Live shows. Julianne Hough awarded her golden buzzer to the young yet big dreamer Luke Islam. 

“I just have to say I’m extremely flattered that you would even look up to my brother and I with a voice like that, with an energy like that, because you have such talent and grace. You have something so special. You have an essence inside of you that has given you a gift.”

Said Julienne. 

“I believe that not only are you going to become a star and get your dream to come true, but I don’t think you need to wait that much longer,”

She went on as she pressed the buzzer.
