Jackie Evancho Returns To America's Got Talent Stage

Jackie Evancho Returns To America's Got Talent Stage

Jackie Evancho became a worldwide sensation after being crowned runner-up on the fifth season of America’s Got Talent. She was just ten years old when she made her appearance on the popular talent competition. Her classical vocals combined with high range made Jackie a standout during the series.

Now, she is back on the stage that started it all as a contestant on America’s Got Talent: The Champions. This special format features 50 acts who have won or been featured on previous editions of the show. These competitors come from all over the world and now they’re all vying for the ultimate winner’s title.

If you remember Jackie from her original audition, you’ll know exactly why she was invited back for this new show. Just listen as she steps back on the stage and sings the classic Andrew Lloyd Webber song ‘Music Of The Night.’

“Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendor
Grasp it, sense it tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night”

After her stunning performance, Jackie received rave reviews from the judges. But Simon’s remarks stood above the rest. “We do have people, they come on the show as kids and then, for whatever reason, over time they lose whatever they had in the first place. But you’ve actually got better. In my definition, that is a champion.” I’m so glad that we were able to hear this powerful voice again.
