The 30-year-old singer, real name Jane Marczewski, appeared remotely on the quarterfinals results episode after dropping out following a devastating recurring cancer diagnosis.

Show host Terry Crews, 53, told Nightbirde that her performance on the show that moved AGT judge and executive producer Simon Cowell, 61, to push the golden buzzer had now been seen more than 200 million times.

Terry asked her when she wrote her song ‘Ok’ whether she had any idea that it would have that big an impact on the world.

‘There is no way I would have ever imagined that,’ Nightbirde said. ‘It’s a song I wrote for myself in the middle of the night, when I needed those words so bad. It’s beautiful to see the world welcome that song into their own dark night. I’m overwhelmed by it.’

Howie Mandel, 65, then told her that the entire world is suffering adversity right now and that she is the ‘poster human for courage in the face of adversity, for poise, for beauty, and for fight.’

Sofia Vergara, 49, thanked Nightbirde for  touching her with her song.

Already won: ‘Even though you haven’t competed, you have already won,’ Simon Cowell said. ‘Your clip had such an impact on so many people’

Simon got emotional when he talked to Nightbirde. He said they had spoken a few times and that he knew she had made the decision to leave because her health was the priority right now.

He relayed that the last time they spoke, Nightbirde said she felt she had let people down. Simon wanted her to know that she hadn’t let anyone down by dropping out of the competition.

‘Even though you haven’t competed, you have already won,’ Simon said. ‘Your clip had such an impact on so many people.’

Popular song: ‘There is no way I would have ever imagined that,’ Nightbirde said of her audition song becoming popular. ‘It’s a song I wrote for myself in the middle of the night, when I needed those words so bad. It’s beautiful to see the world welcome that song into their own dark night. I’m overwhelmed by it’

He said that the most important thing was her health and recovery.

‘On behalf of all of us, we are sending you our love and our prayers and we can’t wait to see you again soon,’ he said.

Simon then appeared to stop himself from crying when he said, ‘And thank you so much for auditioning on the show and for singing such a beautiful song.’

For the last spot it was a competition between the Beyond Belief dance company and singer Madilyn and the judges were literally split.

Heidi voted for the girls dance group. Sofia said she didn’t think that Madilyn needed her help to be a recording artist and also picked the dancers.

Howie and Simon voted for Madilyn. Because it was a tie, the act that got the most votes at home would be declared the winner.

A crew member handed Terry a card, he said based on the number of votes that Madilyn was the one going on to the semifinals. Madilyn clasped her hands and smiled at the news.

America’s Got Talent will return next Tuesday on NBC.
