America HAS Got Talent, and Jackie Evancho is proof enough of that. Britian may have its Susan Boyle, but we Yanks have got a ten-year-old sensation and you can watch her belt those dulcet tones firsthand.

She was introduced to the world on the August 10 episode of Talent. When the Pittsburgh girl performed a rendition of “O Mio Babbino Caro” and received a standing ovation. To listen to the girl sing is to witness a modern marvel. That big operatic voice just shouldn’t be able to come from such a small being. What did the judges have to say about Evancho? Piers Morgan said, “That is one of the most extraordinary performances I have ever seen [on this show].” Sharon Osbourne added, “I’ve never seen anything like it.”
