'AGT': Howie Mandel Slams Golden Buzzer for Show's First-Ever Spoken Word Poet
The 27-year-old college counselor hit the stage as the show's first-ever spoken word poet, and his deeply emotional performance earned him Howie Mandel's Golden Buzzer. "Tonight's poem is an ode to my sister," Leake explained. When asked if he's close to his sister, Leake replied, "Very much. "Kind of," Leake replied, cryptically, before getting into his performance. "It's amazing to me that, on season 15, it's the first time that we're hearing someone [perform] spoken word," Mandel shared.
