On Tuesday’s America’s Got Talent, 15-year-old Makayla Phillips from Canyon Lake, Calif., so floored the crowd and judges with a performance of Demi Lovato’s “Warrior” that judge Heidi Klum gave the singer the Golden Buzzer.
“I love the whole package,” Klum told Phillips. “I love your smile. I love how you project to everyone. Your voice is incredible,” she said. Then she unleashed the buckets of gold confetti.
But not everyone was excited that Klum gave Phillips the Golden Buzzer, mostly because she is a singer, and some took to Twitter:

First, she was good but not buzzer worthy.
Two, nobody sings Demi except Demi.
Three, Why are all the golden buzzers singers??? I thought this was AGT not American Idol. #AGT

With one person even recommending a format change:

And while some people may have been happier to see Oscar the singing dog get the Golden Buzzer, Phillips is moving on in the show like, well, a warrior.
