Guest judge Jay Leno pushed the button to vault the young diva to the live show.

America’s Got Talent” judge Simon Cowell told 10-year-old opera singer Emanne Beasha on Tuesday that he hoped “the next three minutes changes your life.” They certainly changed Beasha’s prospects in the talent competition.

Her performance of “Caruso” earned the Golden Buzzer from guest panelist Jay Leno, vaulting her directly to the live show.

She quickly caught the attention of Leno, who has been around plenty of talent in his career as a talk show host. “I feel like I’m a witness to something extremely special,” Leno said.

Beasha, a Jordanian resident of North Port, Florida, who previously won “Arabs Got Talent,” tweeted that Leno’s affirmation was “the moment of a lifetime.”
