Madilyn Bailey’s Time on America’s Got Talent

This singer began as a viral act that auditioned for a talent show in 2021. At the time of her audition, she was known for having over 13 million fans on social media. Within her social media she shares her creativity through songwriting. She draws inspiration from the positive and negative comments on her accounts.

Beside her social media career, Madilyn definitely had one of the most memorable auditions of AGT‘s most recent season. She took to the stage singing an original song made up of hate comments left on her YouTube page. This hilarious song was what brought her into the live shows. She then performed in both the quarter finals where she faced elimination for the first time. After a judges vote, Madilyn continued on in the competition. She performed once more in the semi finals before her time in the series ended. She was eliminated along with Korean Soul instead of Aidan Bryant.

Since her time on AGT ended she has been working original songs, while also sharing covers on YouTube and TikTok. Since the series, her social media accounts haven’t slowed down at all. She still gets at least 100,000 views on each of her YouTube and TikTok videos.
