Cristina Ramos did something on “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” that no other act had been able to accomplish. On the January 14 episode, she got more votes from the superfans than Darci Lynne Farmer, the singing ventriloquist who won “AGT” in 2017. That got Ramos a place in the final and made her one to watch.(Darci Lynne is also in the competition as one of the wild cards.)
Cristina won “Spain’s Got Talent” in 2016 for her wild mash-ups of rock songs and opera. Now she could well win the first season of this “AGT” spin-off with her over-the-top style of singing. She mixes musical genres, including opera rock and disco into an unique sound.

In our live blog of the “AGT” finale, we had this to say about Cristina’s singing: “For her final song she promised something special which turned out to be an operatic opening leading in to the Blondie classic “Call Me.” The glam rock rendition included interludes of more opera vocals that truly made the cover more unique than ones we’ve heard previously on other singing shows. It was a stellar opening to the finals that Simon Cowell said was an “insanely good” vocal.”
