Williams spoke about her Golden Buzzer moment, noting that she has been dancing since she was 17 years old and never left dancing even when she went to work at the supermarket.
The 90-year-old stripper said that she did not expect a Golden Buzzer and is glad that Nick Cannon liked her performance. “It feels very strange at 90 years old to be a star,” she said in a clip following the performance.
Nick Cannon pressed the Golden Buzzer because he wanted to make her a star, and she is indeed a star now. The video of her auditions for the America’s Got Talent 2016, was viewed more than four million times on different platforms.
In the video, Williams doesn’t only give the viewers a peek into her backstory but also her expectations, which weren’t sky high of course, when she went up on stage. Williams will surely add to the interesting quotient of the show.
Cartermatt reported that whether or not Williams have a genuine chance on the live shows depends purely on the circumstances. If she gives a performance that can be labelled as a throwaway during a live show and she takes the stage at the first hour, there are chances that she will be blotted out. On the other hand, prime treatment and an inspirational pre-performance package for the lady can help her story win over people.
Williams stunned the audience with her sensuous performance on America’s Got Talent 2016 as she slowly took off her skirt and then her top to reveal a pair of tassels, as she grooved to the music being played in the background.
“I have to say, you’re 90 years old: Good for you,” E Online quoted Mel B. as saying. “Good for you!”
Williams wanted to show the world that “you’re never too old to follow your dreams” and Cannon told her that “a star is born tonight,” right after the performance before breaking the rules and hitting the Golden Buzzer on her.
