Heidi Klum finally smashed her Golden Buzzer on Tuesday for an act that left the judges forever… changed.
The fifth week of America’s Got Talent auditions introduced viewers to Lea Kyle, a quick-change artist who put Beyoncé, Cinderella and even Sabrina the Teenage Witch to shame with her rapidly changing (and constantly mystifying) wardrobe. It was absolute sorcery from start to finish, and it’s exactly the kind of thing I would pay to see in Vegas.
“I loved it, you were doing real magic,” Klum told Kyle after a standing ovation from the judges. “It was absolutely incredible and flawless. You know how much I love fashion, and I feel like we’ve never really had anyone as good as you. I feel like you should go straight to the live shows, what do you think?” Cue the buzzer.
