Celine Tam may have been the second act to perform on Tuesday’s second live “America’s Got Talent” but she ranks first for many viewers. On quarter-final two, she wowed the crowd with her flawless rendition of the Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston duet “When You Believe.” She had all four judges singing her praises, with both Mel B and Heidi Klum gushing over her extraordinary range. (Watch CelineTam’s quarter-final performance above.)
During the August 1 episode of “AGT,” this talented tyke won over guest judge Laverne Cox when she performed her namesake Celine Dion‘s power ballad “How Am I Supposed To Live Without You.” This Emmy-nominated actress was so impressed that she pressed the Golden Buzzer, sending Tam straight through to the live shows.
We first met Tam on the June 20 audition episode when she sang Dion’s signature song, “My Heart Will Go On,” the 1997 Oscar-winning theme to “Titanic.” She proved herself to be a worthy successor to this seven-time Grammy champ. Tam first revealed her adult-sized voice to her father when she was just three. Since then, she has learned a load of songs in Dion’s repertoire, including this classic tale of lost love.
