Night 5 of auditions on “America’s Got Talent” season 17 continued on June 28 with another slate of audition performances

from acts vying for this year’s $1 million prize. Host Terry Crews was back in the theater with series judges Simon Cowell

Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel after offering up his Golden Buzzer to saxophonist Avery Dixon on Night 1

Howie and Simon sent two more acts straight through to the lives when they gave singers Maddie and Sara James

their Golden Buzzers on Night 2 and Night 3, respectively

Last week, Sofia was hypnotized by the all female Lebanese dance group Mayyas

The last Golden Buzzer came from Heidi, who was moved by the feeling of “a light around” singer songwriter Lily Meola

. Watch her full audition in the video above.

Before performing her original song “Daydream,” Lily told the judges that the meaning of its lyrics have “evolved over the past couple years.”

She explained that when she wrote it she had a record deal and was living her own daydream

but shortly after that her mom was diagnosed with cancer and she lost her record deal while taking time to care for and be with her mother up until her death

Because of that evolution, she warned the judges that she might not be able to make it through the song without crying

but upon completion of the audition she had in fact made it through and earned a standing ovation from the judges and the audience.
