We’re talking about those unexpected artists who stepped on stage at America’s Got Talent and blew us away with their skills, personalities, and unique talents.

Without further ado, here are a roundup of AGT most surprising auditions you’ll want to watch more than once.

Hint: They all received America’s Got Talent Golden Buzzer!

AGT Most Surprising Auditions: Which One's Your Favorite?

Grace VanderWaal

When 12-year-old Grace VanderWaal first stepped on stage at America’s Got Talent holding her ukulele, everyone was smitten by her innocence. As she started talking, she revealed she also has a sweet personality, but the best was yet to come.

Grace performed an original song called “I Don’t Know My Name,” and her incredible voice and unique interpretation instantly won everyone over.

Simon Cowell called her the next Taylor Swift, while Howie Mandel gave her the ultimate vote of confidence when he sent her straight to the live shows. So from that point on, pretty much the entire world knew her name.

You can watch Grace’s flawless audition for AGT’s 11th season in the video below:

Darci Lynne Farmer

As you probably remember, the twelve-year-old ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer ended up winning America’s Got Talent’s 12th season.

And it all started with what will be remembered as one of AGT most surprising auditions. After all, who can forget Darci Lynne and her adorable stuffed bunny Petunia which made everyone laugh out loud, right?

Darci’s performance showcased her witty personality, stage charisma, singing voice and incredible talent as a ventriloquist. It was without a doubt one of the biggest surprises of America’s Got Talent from all seasons.

What’s even more surprising is the fact Darci is a self-taught ventriloquist. She decided to learn ventriloquism by watching YouTube videos as a way to overcome her shyness. Little did she know back then that it would be the thing to turn her into an international star.  

Check out Darci’s amazing audition which dazzled the judges below.

Courtney Hadwin

Cortney was shy and nervous when she entered the stage and understandably, considering she was only 13 years old when she auditioned on America’s Got Talent Season 13.  What happened next is something no one saw coming.

Courtney let out an incredibly powerful voice and transformed from a shy little girl into a powerhouse entertainer bursting with stage confidence and exuberance.

Courtney is an eccentric young lady who took the audience by storm with her high-energy performance. However, in case you need a quick reminder or merely want to re-watch her audition, all you have to do is hit the Play button below.

This is for sure one of AGT most surprising auditions.
