Sara made it to the Finals last year after earning judge Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer. She shared in her pre-performance package that she hopes competing on All-Stars will give her “the opportunity to travel all over the world.”

“I just think I am a little bit more mature,” Sara shared when Cowell asked her what she’s going to do to win this competition. “I really want to win this show, and I just want to be the first AGT person who’s gonna win the Grammy.”

Sara went on to perform “As It Was” by Harry Styles, starting the performance slow and haunting before belting out a long note and bringing it into the original uptempo version. The singer earned a standing ovation from all three judges.



What Did the Judges Think of Her Performance?

Judge Howie Mandel praised Sara’s ability to takes songs by popular artists such as Elton John or Harry Styles and make them her own. He said it “could be a winning performance.” Host Terry Crews agreed, saying, “Absolutely.”

“You are a star in the making, and I have so much respect for you for coming back,” Heidi Klum told Sara. “I love your style. My daughter who just turned 13 is a huge fan of yours. I’m almost 50, and I’m a huge fan of yours. I think you’re fantastic.”

Cowell told Sara that she just showed everyone who she is as an artist with that performance. After Sara left the stage, Cowell told his fellow judges that she reminds him of Camila Cabello, saying she “has something special.”

Find out whether or not the Superfans voted Sara James into the Finals when the new episode of AGT: All-Stars airs Monday night at 8/7c on NBC.
