The wait is over: 10-year-old opera singer Emanne Beasha is back! The talented phenom took the “America’s Got Talent” stage during the Semifinals 2 performance show and surprised the judges with her unlikely song choice: Bryan Adams‘ “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You.” For weeks the Amman, Jordan native has been a favorite to win NBC’s reality TV show, and tonight’s angelic performance proved why. Do you think Emanne can go on to join the exclusive “AGT” winners list? Watch the live video above, read the judges’ comments below and then make your predictions before Wednesday’s results show.
Julianne Hough: “I hope that I can articulate the profound thing that just happened. You took those lyrics that I remember in English, which is ‘everything I do, I do for you’ and you shifted that meaning of what we do for each other and for the world and you took such grace and beauty and just offered yourself. It was profound. I’m having a moment. I’m figuring out my words. It was profound. It was beautiful. That’s my internal dialogue. I don’t know if it translated.”
Simon Cowell: “Yeah, I agree. Emanne, look, I’ll tell you what I love about you. You are 10 years old. You’re about one foot tall. But when you come out, I’m gonna be honest with you, I get nervous because it’s the Semifinals [but] for you to do what you just did, and the week before, you have this unbelievable powerhouse voice. You don’t even know how good you are, which makes it so amazing. And I loved the production of the song you did. I have no idea what Julianne meant, but you are absolutely brilliant.”
Gabrielle Union: “Stunning. Amazing. You literally took everyone’s breath away. You are an actual angel on earth and amazing.”
Queen Latifah: “I knew from the moment that I saw the unicorns and the dolls that it was on and popping. Let me tell you something, young lady, you are unbelievable. Your confidence is just gorgeous, so keep doing what you do.”
In his “AGT” live blog, our recapper John Benutty had this to say about the performance: “10 year old opera singer Emanne Beasha blew everyone away again tonight with her unreal, pitch perfect voice, especially that final killer note. Julianne was almost speechless after the performance, calling the whole experience ‘profound,’ and both Simon and Latifah said that her confidence is almost as unbelievable as her powerhouse voice.”
