We are now well into the auditions stage of America’s Got Talent 2021, as episodes continuing airing Tuesday nights on NBC.

Finally, the moment many fans await for has happened: Simon Cowell has pressed his Golden Buzzer. Each year, the most talked-about singers receive a Golden Buzzer from one of the four judges. This sends them straight through to the live shows, without facing the elimination rounds.

Simon Cowell bestowed inspiring singer Jane Marczewski with his Golden Buzzer this year. Let’s get to know Jane, who performs under the pseudonym Nightbirde, better. We found her on Instagram to find out more about her!

Jane Marczewski is a 30-year-old singer from Ohio. She performs under the name “Nightbirde.”

On her blog, Jane revealed that she has six months to live, after receiving a diagnosis of terminal cancer on New Year’s Eve. Jane has still has cancer in her lungs, spine and liver.

Jane also said on AGT that the doctors have told her that she only has a 2 per cent chance of surviving. However, the news hasn’t stopped Jane’s dreams. She said in her audition: “Two per cent is not zero. Two per cent is something.”
