Michael Ketterer made a triumphant comeback to America’s Got Talent, and the wait was well worth it!
As you know, Michael came on the show very early in the season and got the AGT Season 13’s second Golden Buzzer.
Michael is a pediatric mental health doctor and the father of six children, including several adopted from foster care. Why would America not love him just for that?
Michael is not just a gentleman, but he also has a fantastic set of pipes. He thrilled the judges so tremendously during his presentation that Simon Cowell sent him directly to Hollywood!
When Michael received the Golden Buzzer, he was allowed to bypass the Judges’ Cut phase, in which artists were eliminated according to how the judges felt, and proceed directly to the live shows.
Before he could perform on AGT for the second time, Simon had to sing his praises. Simon couldn’t stop praising Michael!
“He is outstanding; he is a fantastic human being as well as an incredible singer.” I’m ecstatic. I’m ecstatic right now. I genuinely believe it!
For his second performance on the AGT stage, Michael selected “Us” by James Bay. The song is quite dramatic, and Michael’s voice seems to have been amplified.
When Michael finished singing, the whole crowd and all four judges were up and clapping.
Tyra Banks sought input from Simon first, and the judge tried to pass because he was overcome with emotion. Tyra, on the other hand, was not going to let them pass him up! She encouraged Simon to voice his feelings.
Oh, Michael, take a look at me. Oh my goodness. As a father, I understand why—I can’t imagine what you’ve been through, let alone being on this show. You urgently need it, and you are a one-of-a-kind individual. I don’t know what it is about you!
Despite Simon’s image as a tough guy, Tyra praised him for being willing to show his sensitive side to everyone watching at home and in the audience. As a consequence of being a parent, Simon’s kinder side has surfaced!
Mel B was doodling on her papers to keep from crying.
You’re an amazing human being and a beautiful person. To be able to do what you’ve done in accepting and adopting all of these children and giving them life. Your voice then sings with such sincerity and honesty. ” I burst into tears the instant you said the first word. ”
Heidi Klum’s reply was straightforward yet meaningful. She stated, ”
“We need more men like you.”
