The show is known for its bizarre circus acts, but every now and again, there is an audition that is truly unsettling. The final artist of the night, Jane Marczewski, a.k.a. Nightbirde, was the one who stood out this Tuesday.
Nightbirde is a three-time cancer survivor whose beautiful original ballad “It’s OK” not only moved the judges to tears but also earned her Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer, advancing her to the live stages this season.
She is 30 years old.

Jane Marczewski, a native of Ohio who performs under the moniker Nightbirde, will deliver a performance that will impress not just those on set but also those of.
She will discuss her life hardships, particularly the three times she has been diagnosed with cancer, in addition to her musical abilities. Marczewski writes about her experiences with the sickness on her blog on a daily basis. It’s worth noting that she never seems hopeless, which explains why she was able to deal with cancer in such a positive way.

She wrote, “On New Year’s Eve, I was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Innumerable tumors were found throughout my lungs, liver, lymph nodes, ribs, and spine. I was on the living room floor leaning over the report, head in my hands. Six months to live. Two percent chance of survival,”
It should come as no surprise that her performance will be remembered and talked about for a long time. Putting oneself out there takes a certain type of bravery, and she did it with ease, which says a lot about the kind of person she is.
That level of bravery isn’t seen very frequently. She was previously married, but her husband no longer loved her. Cowell was moved by her performance. The judges all agreed that the Nightbirde deserved the golden buzzer, and we couldn’t agree more.
