WWE hires former America’s Got Talent contestant Samantha Johnson

26-year-old Samantha Johnson has joined WWE and began ring announcing for 205 Live.

The WWE Performance Center Twitter account welcomed Johnson, who is now using the name of Samantha Irvin. “A singer and flautist, you’ve seen her on America’s Got Talent, I Can See Your Voice, and singing the National Anthem in MLB. Samantha wasted no time getting started in @WWE and has begun ring announcing for #205Live,” the tweet said.

Samantha wrote that it’s “an absolute honor and dream come true” to join the promotion.

Johnson was a singer act from season 10 of America’s Got Talent and reached the semifinals, receiving a standing ovation from judges Heidi Klum and Mel B after performing The Weekend’s Earned It song. She was eliminated from the show after the judges forced a tie and sent the vote to viewers.
