‘America’s Got Talent’ is getting close to crowning a winner, but Season 5 runner-up Jackie Evancho will always be in a league of her own. The 14-year-old classical singer returned to the ‘AGT’ stage on the September 10 semifinals, and wowed with her stunning opera performance.

Jackie Evancho, 14, finished in second place on America’s Got Talent back in 2010, and four years later, she came back as the musical guest to sing “Think Of Me” from her upcoming album, and she was better than ever. At such a young age, Jackie still has America captivated with her incredible talent!

Jackie Evancho: Season 5 Runner-Up Returns To ‘America’s Got Talent’

Jackie was only 10 years old when she competed on America’s Got Talent, finishing in second place. Now, at just 14 years old, she was welcomed back and took Radio City Music Hall by storm with an amazing performance!

The classical singer sang  “Think Of Me” from Phantom of the Opera, which she recorded for her upcoming sixth album “Awakening.”

Since gaining national recognition on AGT, Jackie has become a platinum-selling opera singer, releasing five albums! Her Sept. 10 performance proved why she’s had such great success — her talent is unmatchable!

Looking gorgeous in a floor-length blue gown and soft-flowing blonde, shiny hair, the singer commanded America’s attention on the stage, impressing the live audience and judges who gave her a standing ovation.

“Awakening” is set to be released on Sept. 23, and Jackie plans to go on tour. She will also perform on the Today show to promote the album.
