AMERICA’s Got Talent star Nightbirde revealed she felt crushed as she was forced to quit the competition.
The singer has been battling cancer and announced her leave from the show back in August.
Who is AGT star Nightbirde?
Nightbirde, whose real name is Jane Marczewski is an American singer and songwriter.
After sending in an audition tape to AGT the 30-year-old was invited on the show and wowed Simon and his fellow judges with her moving performance of an original song called It's Okay.
She instantly won over an emotional Simon who honored her with the coveted Golden Buzzer, while the other judges and the crowd gave her a standing ovation and rapturous applause.
What type of cancer does Nightbirde have?
Nightbirde was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.
She told her Instagram followers that her health had deteriorated back in August.
The singer wrote alongside a black and white photo of herself: "Sharing my heart with the world on AGT has been an honor and a dream come true. My point of view this summer has been astounding.
"What a miracle that the pain I’ve walked through can be reworked into beauty that makes people all over the world open their eyes wider."
She continued: "Since my audition, my health has taken a turn for the worse and the fight with cancer is demanding all of my energy and attention.
"I am so sad to announce that I won’t be able to continue forward on this season of AGT.
“Life doesn’t always give breaks to those that deserve it – but we knew that already.”
Nightbirde concluded: "Thank you for all your support, it means the world to me. Stay with me, I’ll be better soon. I’m planning my future, not my legacy. Pretty beat up, but I’ve still got dreams."
The entertainer became an overnight sensation after her incredible audition with a video of her performance racking up a staggering 30 million views on YouTube.
Simon recently told ET that he thinks Nightbirde would have made it all the way if she stayed in the competition.
"Would she have won tonight? I think she probably would, actually," the AGT judge said. "And I think she knows that deep down."
"Having said that, she knows she made the right decision," he added.
What did people say about Nightbirde quitting AGT?

One fan wrote: “You inspire me everyday keep going!

A third said: “Because we need to need you! We love you! Your words, when they come out of you, touch our souls. Sending healing energy, and love right back to you!”
Taking to Instagram on September 14, Nightbirde shared a screenshot of her tweet that read: “Don’t you want to see what happens if you don’t give up?”
