AGT Season 1 winner Bianca Ryan has had a turbulent time since first appearing on the show. She took to the stage for the season premiere of America’s Got Talent: The Champions to show that she was able to rise above adversity.

As she explained during the episode, Bianca Ryan underwent surgery to repair a paralyzed vocal cord. Now, she is trying to find her voice again, with the AGT stage serving as the backdrop.

Her full performance of the song Say Something (by A Great Big World) is shown in the video below. It was definitely a heartfelt rendition, leaving the judges and the audience impressed with what she had done.

Bianca Ryan doesn’t make the AGT finals this time

There were 10 acts that performed on the first night of the America’s Got Talent: The Champions episode. It includes the AGT Season 1 winner, Bianca Ryan, but only two acts would be able to advance to the finals.

As the recap shows, singer Susan Boyle and comedian Preacher Lawson advanced to the season finals. Two acts will make the cut during each of five qualifying episodes.

Boyle received the Golden Buzzer from Mel B, while Lawson was put forward by the super fans in attendance. They will now appear with the rest of the nightly winners to compete for the overall title in February.

Despite failing to advance during this installment of the show, Bianca Ryan will always be known as the AGT Season 1 winner.

She already posted to Twitter (shown above) to thank her fans and all of the supporters who have sent her kind messages. We certainly haven’t heard the last of this engimatic singer.

America’s Got Talent: The Champions airs Monday nights at 8/7c on NBC.

To me it’s crap and setup on AGT wants to make things a little mire exciting by putting through the ‘less’ selective types and there are no super fans. The show is chosing who goes through for ratings and to help continue their WOKE agenda. I’m ashamed of them and may never watch again.
