Freckled Zelda, as Rachael Wilson, will appear as a contestant on episode 9 of America’s Got Talent (AGT) season 17. The show, which premieres on NBC on July 26, 2022 at 8 p.m. ET, will feature a wide variety of talents competing for the jury’s approval to advance to the next round.
Zelda, an AGT contestant, introduced herself at the beginning of her audition by saying:
“I am a fairy of music.”
Despite the experts being wary of her stance before the performance, she surprised the judges and the public with her AGT audition and won many accolades. Simon Cowell said after her audition:
“As you walked away, I thought to myself, ‘This is going to be bad.’ I did, and I think you have a great voice. I mean, I don’t like the instrument, and I don’t think it’s essential, but you can keep looking this way if you want, because you’re intriguing.”
Sofia Vergara asked if she would wear the same clothes and if she would like to change in the future. Zelda, on the other hand, confirmed that she would “never” change and remain a fairy for the rest of her life.
