Now this is one incredible performance!

Amanda Mena stole the show on ' America’s Got Talent' this week with her goosebump-worthy rendition of Aretha Franklin’s '(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman'.

The 15-year-old singing sensation was born in the Dominican Republic but raised in Boston, which meant she unfortunately endured bullying at school for struggling with English.

"I got bullied a lot," she said. "So all that kinda gave me tough skin."

But Amanda got the last laugh.

Three out of four judges gave the teen a standing ovation following her powerful performance, with the infamously ruthless Simon Cowell saying: "This is an audition we’re going to remember for a long time."

Fellow judge, Mel B added: "Oh my gosh, where do I start. That was just incredible. I’ve got all goose pimples all over, it’s just crazy. I love you, I love your voice, and this is what I’m going to say to all those bullies…"

Before activating her Golden Buzzer.

We can't wait to see her perform again!
