AMERICA’S Got Talent fans have already chosen the season 18 winner.
Even though the season only started two weeks ago, they expect the stunningly talented singer Putri Ariani to take home the win.
AGT entered its second week of auditions last week and this season is already showing some incredibly talented acts.
Putri is a 17-year-old singer from Indonesia.
She is blind and wants to attend Julliard College.
Putri wowed the judges with her incredible voice, so much so that Simon Cowell awarded her the Golden Buzzer.
He wasn’t impressed the first time, but he allowed her to sing another song and then gave her the special honor.
The singer also captured the hearts of America that night and many have called her the winner.
Her story is similar to that of Kodi Lee, who also received the Golden Buzzer in Season 14.
He went on to win the season as well as the All-Stars in 2023.

Like Putri, Kodi is blind, has autism and also impressed the judges with his voice.
AGT posted a photo of Putri receiving the Golden Buzzer on their Instagram page.
“@arianinismaputri is a star and @simoncowell’s #GoldenBuzzer!” The show was captioned post.
Fans flooded the comments with announcements of their victory.
“She will undoubtedly win,” wrote one fan.
To which someone replied, “I totally agree with that statement, well deserved.”
“I’m keeping my fingers crossed that you win! I think we all are,” said another.
“She is the female version of Kodi Lee. She’s definitely going to win!” commented a third.
“Putri is a winner in my opinion,” wrote one delighted fan.
Putri had to appear before the jury twice.
The blind 17-year-old artist sat down at the piano to passionately perform an original song.
Simon, impressed by Putri’s vocal ability, jumped on stage at America’s Got Talent and insisted she perform another song, prompting her to provide a rendition of Elton John’s “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word”.
Audiences and judges loved both performances and Howie Mandel said: “A lot of people don’t believe in angels and I think one just landed on our stage. You are a superstar.”
Meanwhile, before presenting the young artist with his Golden Buzzer, Simon said: “You have an amazing, distinctive voice. You have a kind of glow about you.”
