America's Got Talent Wiki

Maximilliana was a singer from Season 2 of America's Got Talent. She returned in Season 9, seven years later, where she was likely eliminated during Judgment Week.


Maximilliana is everything... handsome man, beautiful woman, actor, singer, musician, comedian, and performance artist, phenomenal bearded lady and all-around entertainer. Originally from the backwoods of Alabama, Max cut her teeth performing at bars and honkytonks, harvest festivals, weddings, funerals, beauty pageants, parking lots and churches. After moving cross-country to pursue her dreams, Maximilliana was cast as one of the “Queen’s Men” at “The Queen Mary Show Lounge” in Studio City, California. “The Queen Mary Show Lounge” was a mecca for drag entertainment featuring the longest running drag show in America until its closing. Max has also appeared on television shows and in movies including: Nash Bridges, Clueless, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Mas Vale Tarde with Alex Cambert, MadTV, Tyra, The Tom Joyner Show, Shoot or be Shot, Ringmaster: the Jerry Springer Movie, and America's Got Talent seasons 2 and 9. With the release of her debut album “(Maxi)milli-ana” , Max has demonstrated new talents; music producer and songwriter. The recent addition of a beard has transformed Maximilliana into the “Bearded Lady”. As an artist who colors outside the lines of gender, Maximilliana continues pushing boundaries in search of their breaking point. [1]
