Jackie Evancho submitted her audition via YouTube — and the huge voice coming out of her tiny body will give you goosebumps! But do you think she’ll steal Justin Bieber’s YouTube crown?
America’s Got Talent did something different on Tuesday night, featuring acts no one had ever seen before, who had to submit videos of themselves via YouTube. One of the acts was Jackie Evancho, a mindblowing little girl who sang, in the words of judge Piers Morgan, “like an angel.” Since then YouTube and Google have been on fire with people wanting to see for themselves. We can’t decide if she’s more like Justin Bieber (YouTube sensation) or Susan Boyle (amazing voice coming from a totally unlikely person), but the judges were clearly blown away.
“We said from the beginning that this was scary,” judge Howie Mandel told Jackie after she finished to a standing ovation, “all we want to do is to find that one moment, that one gem, that one star … and this is the moment. You’re the star.”
Piers called it “one of the most extraordinary performances I’ve ever seen,” and commented that, “tomorrow, America’s going to be going crazy over a little girl who sang like an angel.”
“I feel like I’m going to burst into tears!” Jackie responded to the cooing judges. We know how she feels. We’re right there with her. In fact, we’re going to watch it again, right now.
