America’s Got Talent 2022 LIVE — Fans SLAM tonight’s ‘unfair’ Golden Buzzer given to Selena actress Madison Taylor Baez | The Sun

AMERICA'S Got Talent (AGT) has returned for another episode of auditions this week and fans are disappointed in the act that got the Golden Buzzer.

Howie Mandel used his golden buzzer to send Madison "Maddie" Taylor Baez directly to the live show in AGT's second episode of the season after she sang from the audience during a commercial break.

Though the judges and people in the crowd were overjoyed about the decision, some fans were not as excited, saying that the decision was "unfair."

One such user tweeted: "Im sorry, but I feel bad for the people that have been waiting all damn day to try and get a golden buzzer, and a “random” girl in the crowd gets it.

"Don’t get me wrong, I’m heartbroken about her father…but still…how unfair to the other contestants."

Maddie is a singer and actress who is 11 years old, and also played Young Selena Quintanilla in Netflix's Selena: The Series.

Tune in to NBC at 8pm ET NOW to catch the latest round of AGT auditions.
