Nightbirde announced via social media that she won't be able to continue her journey in America's Got Talent. The singer shared that her health has been deteriorating and she needs to prioritize it at the time being.
"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," she wrote on her Instagram page.
In her post, she also looked back on her AGT audition and called it a dream come true.
"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 said.
Nightbirde also extended her gratitude to those who have been supporting her in her journey.
"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," she said.
AGT judges Sofia Vergara and Heidi Klum extended their well-wishes for the singer.
"Here’s to planning for a bright future @_nightbirde. Your energy, your smile, and your amazing voice will be missed at the #agt live shows, but we’re rooting for you and your big dreams!" Sofia posted on her Instagram.
"We will miss your energy, your passion, and your beautiful voice at the live shows. The entire #AGT family loves you and we’re all rooting for you," Heidi wrote.
