Simon Cowell announced that America’s Got Talent will pay tribute at Jane Nightbirde Marczewski, who was just 31 when she died after a fight with cancer.
Cowell auditioned the singer-songwriter for his NBC show in 2021. She was awarded a Golden Buzzer and a song for originality. “It’s OK”.
As the disease progressed, she was forced to pull out of the contest, just before the quarter-final stage.
Ohio-born singer was first diagnosed in 2017 with breast cancer. She was then given the all clear a year later. However, it recurred in 2019. ‘Nightbirde was given between three and six months to live. The second round of treatment was successful, but it took until the final episode to diagnose a third bout.
The following is a description of her death “unfair”Cowell, 62, stated that Marczewski who had a remarkable voice would be given special mention during the live shows.
He said that the show’s boss and head judge were still trying to figure out how the tribute would work when the 17th series airs.
Cowell admitted: “I think we should do something special on the live shows. Because there is no question when we got the news, even though, you know, it, the last time I saw her, she was very frail at the same time she was very optimistic, talking to me about her music.
“She came over to the house and I was like, you just don’t know. You just don’t know. And when I heard the news, it was so unfair, she is actually such a nice person, so talented. And she said to me, you know should I do the show or not? And then she, you know, I’m gonna do it. And she said, the great thing was, is that millions of people got to hear my music.
“This was quite a significant thing for her. It was then all taken from her. It’s life is unfair like this.”
After learning about the news of her passing earlier this year, Cowell tweeted: “@_nightbirde’s tragic passing is heartbreaking news. She was an extraordinary human being, so courageous, so talented.
“She made a huge impact on AGT and the world. Her determination to fight this terrible illness was remarkable. Rest in peace, Jane. I am sending my love to her family. Simon.”
