While some of the acts stumbled, New Bedford's own Samantha Johnson raised the bar last night during her live performance in the quarter-finals of “America’s Got Talent.”

The singer from New Bedford was the final act to take the stage last night and she received a standing ovation from the audience and the judges after a thrilling performance of 'California Dreamin'.

After her performance, Mel B commented and said that “she closed the show with a bang!”

Howie Mandel stated, “Wow! You look beautiful, you sounded beautiful, you are a star, you owned the stage and you owned the show.”

Howard Stern stated, “That was your best performance yet. You came here and you stepped it up, well done.”

Lastly, Heidi Klum told Johnson that she believes that Johnson is hands down the best singer on the show.
