AGT star Nightbirde reveals liver 'is mostly cancer' in 'devastating' health update but insists she's not 'giving up'

AMERICA'S Got Talent star, Jane Marczewski, a.k.a. Nightbirde, revealed her liver "is mostly cancer" in a "devastating" health update.

However, the singer-songwriter and three-time cancer survivor insisted she's not "giving up" the fight.

Last night, Nightbirde appeared on Cuomo Prime Time, admitting to Chris: "Well, to tell you the truth, I've been curled up in a ball like a cocktail shrimp, having an A-plus pity party for myself, because it's just been a bad, bad month. It's been really, pretty devastating."

The interview was the singer's first public appearance since she announced on Instagram Monday she had dropped out of America's Got Talent after her health prognosis worsened.

However, Nightbirde confirmed: "I'm not a quitter. So it was really, really hard for me to say that I couldn't finish the show. I got shocking news less than a week ago about cancer regrowth that has taken over my lungs and liver. So my liver right now is mostly cancer. More cancer than liver in there right now.

"But like I said, I'm planning my future, not my legacy. Some people would call that blind denial. I prefer to call it rebellious hope. And I'm not stopping anytime soon."

Nightbirde went on: "Don't you want to see what happens if you don't give up? Don't you want to see what happens? And that's what I keep saying to myself and that's what I say to everyone watching tonight. Don't you want to see what happens if you don't give up?"

Chris asked her: "Have you always been like this."

She responded: "I don't know. I think when you're faced with so many blows to the gut in a row like I have over the past several years, you find out what you're made of in a sense, and you're given the opportunity to choose what you want to become. So no, I don't think I was always this way."

Earlier this week, an AGT source revealed to The Sun Simon Cowell made an emotional phone call to Nightbirde, telling her the “door is open” for a return to the show.

On Monday she announced she is withdrawing from the competition series to focus on her battle with metastatic breast cancer.

After sending in an audition tape to AGT she was invited on the show and wowed Simon and his fellow judges with her moving performance of an original song called It's Okay.

She instantly won over an emotional Simon who honored her with the coveted Golden Buzzer, while the other judges and the crowd gave her a standing ovation and rapturous applause.

A show source exclusively told The Sun: "Simon called Jane personally when he heard the news.

"She made a big impact on him, he thought her audition was amazing and from the heart.

"He was genuinely really upset to hear about her cancer, it really affected him and anyone watching could see he was close to tears."

The insider added: "They spoke on the phone for a while and Simon offered her any help and support that he and his team can give and told her that the door is open when and if she feels ready to come back.

"He just hopes she can beat this and make a full recovery, he thinks she’s very talented and an amazing person and was incredibly moved by her audition.”

Simon's team has stayed closely in touch with Nightbirde since her audition in June.

Nightbirde announced her exit from the AGT finals on Instagram early Monday morning, saying her health had deteriorated.

She wrote alongside a black and white photo of herself: "Sharing my heart with the world on AGT has been an honor and a dream come true. My point of view this summer has been astounding.

"What a miracle that the pain I’ve walked through can be reworked into beauty that makes people all over the world open their eyes wider."

She continued: "Since my audition, my health has taken a turn for the worse and the fight with cancer is demanding all of my energy and attention.

"I am so sad to announce that I won’t be able to continue forward on this season of AGT.

“Life doesn’t always give breaks to those that deserve it – but we knew that already.”

Nightbirde concluded: "Thank you for all your support, it means the world to me. Stay with me, I’ll be better soon. I’m planning my future, not my legacy. Pretty beat up, but I’ve still got dreams."

The entertainer became an overnight sensation after her incredible audition with a video of her performance racking up a staggering 30 million views on YouTube.
