Kseniya Simonova took the stage during the fifth episode of America’s Got Talent: The Champions. Her talent with sand art was immediately obvious.

Crews spoke about how impressed he was at how Simonova had “moved” people as he walked toward the judges’ tables. Crews then pressed the Golden Buzzer, sending her straight through to the finals. She became one of five acts to receive that designation this season.
