Child singer Angelica Hale performed Tuesday night during the Finals episode of “America’s Got Talent” 2017. As one of the Top 10 “AGT” acts of Season 12, Hale is considered by many to have the best voice in the competition. Did the 10-year-old girl continue wowing the judges and America with her final performance of Clean Bandit‘s “Symphony”? Watch Hale’s “America’s Got Talent” recap video above from NBC’s reality TV show.
All four “AGT” judges — Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel — jumped to their feet at the conclusion of her performance. We’re also assuming that former guest judge Chris Hardwick was standing up at home, as he is Hale’s Golden Buzzer mentor. Here is what they all had to say:
Klum: “Oh my gosh! I mean, you’re only four feet tall but you are a giant! You really are! You are unbelievable. And you know what Angelica, for me, I think you are the best singer we have in this entire competition, so good luck to you!”
Mandel: “What a way to open the show. What a way. This is the finale, and it felt like that was the finale. That’s the way to close a show, let alone open a show. People gotta vote. You said you’re in it to …”
Hale: “Win it!”
Mandel: “I think you might with that song!”
Mel B: “I mean, I have to say, you just look so comfortable and confident. There was not one ounce of nervousness and you just took the stage and you controlled every note, every everything. That was just amazing. Absolutely amazing.”
Cowell: “I am actually, I said this last week, and I’m gonna say it again, I’m actually gobsmacked, because you really are in it to win it aren’t you? I mean, seriously. And let me tell you why I really like this performance tonight, Angelica, and why I like you. It doesn’t feel to me that your mom or your dad told you what to sing. It feels like it’s your choice, which makes you relevant, it makes you cool. I can remember going back years ago and seeing some early auditions from people like Britney [Spears], Christina [Aguilera], even Justin Timberlake who started their careers on shows like this. We may be, and it may be sooner rather than later, looking back on this performance to go, ‘This was the moment your career started.’ Angelica, you have my absolute respect.”
