“America’s Got Talent’s” Jackie Evancho wowed ‘em again during the semifinals last night, drawing a standing ovation from the crowd. A berth in the final 10 competitors seems all but certain. For my money, she also put to rest any lingering doubts about whether she is lip syncing or not.
During her 90-second performance of “Time to Say Goodbye” by Andrea Bocelli, she hit some amazing notes. But her voice also trilled off key for just a half a second during the final notes, and I was actually thrilled to hear that. It proved that she’s really singing – if she wasn’t, why would they leave that imperfection in? I hope this shuts up the people accusing this sweet 10-year-old of faking it.
Of course, the judges had only kind words for her. In fact, they gushed like, well, a 10-year-old schoolgirl. Read on for their comments and video of last night’s performance.
“You are like an angel from another planet,” said Howie Mandel. “I’ve never witnessed something like this.”
“We have got in you a superstar,” declared Piers Morgan.
Decide for yourself – does Jackie have the pipes to win? And if you were one of the haters (boo!), do you now believe she’s really singing?
