Sara James is truly a tour-de-force of talent, as proven by her smashing America's Got Talent run in Season 17 and her explosive return for AGT: All-Stars. James never delivers a bad performance, which is why she's been so successful since AGT.

How to Watch

The 14-year-old is a jaw-dropping singer with whom crowds first fell in love during her Season 17 Audition, when she dreamily covered Billie Eilish's "Lovely" and earned a coveted Golden Buzzer from Judge Simon Cowell. James continued to crush the competition, making it all the way to the Finals before bidding farewell to the AGT stage. James may have not taken home the win, but she continues to win over crowds to this day. 

Here's everything James has been up to since her electrifying AGT run. 

Sara James returned for AGT: All-Stars

AGT fans didn't have to say goodbye to James for very long following her first turn on the show in 2022: She returned to the U.S. for the high-stakes AGT: All-Stars competition in 2023.

"Even though I didn’t win, I came back to Poland and the press was waiting for me, shouting my name," James revealed "I want to be the first AGT person to win a Grammy."

She instantly had the crowds going wild with her All Stars Audition of Harry Styles' "As It Was" — seen in the video at the top of this page — during which she sounded simply stunning.

“You are a star in the making, and I have so much respect for you for coming back," Heidi Klum said after James' Audition. "I love your style. My daughter, who just turned 13, is a huge fans of yours. I’m almost 50 and a huge fan of yours. I think you’re fantastic.”

Sara James released an explosive cover of "Running Up That Hill"

AGT fans remember exactly where they were when they first heard James' emotional cover of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" during the Season 17 finale.

Luckily, fans can now listen to the rousing rendition anytime they like! In November 2022, James released an official cover of the track. She shared the exciting development on Instagram, captioning a promo photo: "'Running Up That Hill' is out now everywhere! Go and listen."

Say less! 

Sara James became the voice of a Disney Princess

James' fairytale dreams came true in March 2023 when she revealed she would be singing in the role of Ariel in the Polish dub of the Little Mermaid live-action film, which premiered May 26. 

"Some of you have already figured out that I am singing as Ariel in the Polish language version of The Little Mermaid," James shared on Instagram. "I still can't believe that I gave my voice to the main character and also performed these wonderful songs in a [Disney] film. It is my dubbing debut! This amazing adventure required from me a new approach to working with my voice."

Sara James released new singles "Hula Hoop" and "My Wave"

With an AGT run as impressive as James', it's no wonder she's hit the ground running in the music industry. James has released multiple replay-worthy bops, like the sizzling track "Hula Hoop" (seen in the video above) and the dreamy single, "My Wave" (seen in the video below).
