What does the Golden buzzer mean on AGT 2021?
The concept of the Golden buzzer was introduced in Season 9 of the show. Each judge is allowed to press their Golden Buzzer only once during the season. Hence it looks like Simon honoured Jane with his.
The Golden Buzzer is meant to save the contestant from elimination if the other judges’ vote against their selection. The contestant is allowed to move to the next round regardless of the other judges’ votes.
Its main purpose is to break ties.
