America's Got Talent has had some memorable performances, from a trapeze act gone wrongto the singer who sounded just like Whitney Houston. The show's Tuesday night episode featured yet another memorable moment when the youngest contestant ever appeared on the NBC show.
As Billboard reports, 5-year old Sophie Fatu appeared on the show to showcase her singing talents. When judge Simon Cowell asked Sophie what she’d do with the $1 million prize, she responded, "I don’t really care about money. I just want to sing for everyone and make them happy."
Sophie then went into an adorable rendition of Frank Sinatra’s hit song New York, New York. The audience and the judges couldn't contain their smiles and applause as she belted her heart out.
America's Got Talent saved its best for last during the first of the season's live rounds on Monday, bringing out 14-year-old singing phenom Courtney Hadwin for a show-stealing performance that absolutely floored the judges.
After earning the coveted Golden Buzzer from Howie Mandel during the audition rounds with a jaw-dropping performance of "Hard to Handle" by Otis Redding, the young songstress had already proven herself something of a vocal powerhouse.
The amazing thing about Hadwin is just how unexpected her larger-than-life stage presence is when you look at her, especially considering her self-described social anxiety.
