How Australia’s Got Talent reduced host Ricki-Lee Coulter to tears

“I was bawling backstage!”

By Erin Doyle
The Australia's Got Talent reboot hasn't even kicked off yet but it's already looking to be an emotionally wrought season.
And in the latest promo to drop for the Channel Seven talent show, the tears are continuing to flow.
This time it's host Ricki-Lee Coulter who is reduced to an emotional mess after one of the performances.
A talented 15-year-old schoolgirl takes to the stage in the clip and the judges' jaws collectively drop when they hear her voice.
The moment becomes too much for former Australian Idol star Ricki-Lee who storms the stage to interrupt after the performance.
"I just have to say something," Ricki-Lee tells the girl as she chokes up.
"You're so amazing! I was bawling backstage. My heart was racing a million miles an hour."

While AGT isn't set to screen until Sunday July 28, several sneak peeks have given us a glimpse of what to expect.
It seems Ricki-Lee wasn't the only star to be left in tears during filming; judge Nicole Scherzinger also breaks down after another touching audition.
In one promo, blind singer/pianist Paul performs on stage to a standing ovation and although his performance is not shown in the promo but the reactions of judges Nicole, Manu Feildel, Shane Jacobson, and Lucy Durac are.
Nicole is left sobbing, telling Paul "I'm crying my face off right now!"
The US-based hitmaker adds: "I mean Australia's got talent you guys. You're the reason why I flew here."
