America’s Got Talent season 15 just got started, and already we’re overwhelmed by all the amazing acts we’ve seen so far. But of the gifted contestants on the NBC talent show, only a small handful will receive the golden buzzer.

In the audition round, judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Sofía Vergara, and Howie Mandel and host Terry Crews are allowed to press the golden buzzer once for their absolute favorite act. When they do, that contestant or group is showered in golden confetti and becomes safe from elimination until later on in the summer.
Given that the 2020 season of AGT just kicked off, we’ve only seen Terry use his golden buzzer so far. Scroll down to read about why Terry gave one special choir the coveted honor.
