Susan Boyle Who? 10-Year-Old Soprano Storms “AGT”

Move over, Susan Boyle — there's a new singer taking the world by storm, and she's only 10 years old!

Jackie Evancho, a Pittsburgh native, wowed the crowd with her rendition of Puccini's famous "O Mia Babbino Caro" on Tuesday night's "America's Got Talent."

The petite performer, who was invited to appear on the show after winning an "AGT" YouTube contest, packs a powerful punch with her shockingly mature voice.

Jackie, who describes her style as "classical crossover" (think Sarah Brightman) began singing at the age of seven after hearing music from "The Phantom of the Opera."

"AGT" judge Howie Mandel said it best when he proclaimed to an emotional Jackie following her explosive performance, "This is your moment, and you are the star!"

No word yet on what's next for Jackie as results from Tuesday night's show — and who gets through to the next round won't be revealed until Wednesday's results show. Jackie's website, however, notes she will perform at Carnegie Hall on Dec. 2, 2010.


"America's Got Talent" airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9 PM on NBC.
