Quintavious Johnson, 12, has a huge voice, so it’s no surprise he’s dreaming of working with other big voices! After taking the ‘AGT’ stage with JHud, he told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that his dream collab is now Mariah Carey!
If you want to work with a powerful singer with a huge range, Mariah Carey is a good pick! After coming in fifth place on the America’s Got Talent finale on September 17, Quintavious Johnson headed backstage and told us all about why he’s dying to work with Mariah.
‘America’s Got Talent’: Quintavious Johnson Wants To Work With Mariah Carey
While Nick Cannon skipped out on the red carpet interviews, his wife’s name was totally brought up by the adorable and insanely talented, 12-year-old Quintavious’ mind! Following a stunning duet with Jennifer Hudson, he told HollywoodLife.com exclusively backstage that he’s already wanting to now pair up with Mariah!
“Now that I performed with Jennifer Hudson, [my dream match up would be] Mariah Carey,” he told us on the red carpet following the live show. “I love her whistles. I love her vocal runs. I love everything. I love all of that!”
Quintavious Reveals Mariah’s Never Visited ‘AGT’
Well, he does have some connections with Mariah — maybe Nick could introduce them? However, he also told us that he has not had the pleasure of meeting her. So, we asked if she ever swung by the AGT set, and he simply answered, “no.”
Sure, a tad awkward considering that Mariah and Nick are reportedly heading toward a divorce, but for 12-year-old Quintavious, he’s focused on the important stuff — her amazing voice!
We’d love to see them duet, wouldn’t you? Do you think he should have won it all, HollywoodLifers?
