Watch America’s Got Talent runner-up Jackie Evancho on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno in this interview video clip – her first talk show appearance!
During the interview, Jay Leno talks with Jackie Evanho, 10, about being in 5th grade, her teachers, riding something called iFly at Universal CityWalk, and being a cheerleader.
Jackie says she used to be a cheerleader and demonstrates with a cheer – it’s nice to see her personality shine through. Too cute!
Also, Jackie Evancho has a fan in Tonight Show guest Jimmy Smits, who said he was in the audience at America’s Got Talent: “You were like an angel. I was there… it was like a voice from God. You’re incredible.”
Jackie talks about starting to sing two years ago, competing in a talent competition and coming from a musical family. Jay Leno shows a video of Evancho singing with her brother – not opera! – and it’s adorable.
Jackie also has loads of pets: 9 hermit crabs, 2 guinea pigs, 3 dogs, 2 cats, lizard, 3 frogs, 4 ducks, and talks a bit about her smart duck.
Jackie Evancho then sings “Pie Jesu” on the Tonight Show (video). Flawless, as always:
