A young 10-year old by the name of Jackie Evancho has made it into the semi-finals of the YouTube challenge on America's Got Talent. Her lip-synched rendition of Puccini's O Mio Babbino Caro performed by Susan Boyle was the best anyone has ever seen and her performance brought down the house.
Susan Boyle, watching the show from her home in Scotland was truly mesmerized at seeing her voice seemingly come from a small ten-year old's mouth. "I was flabbergasted and amazed when I saw my voice coming from that little girl's mouth. Technology today is just so wonderful," gushed Susan.
"The judges on America's Got Talent were great for allowing a lip-synched performance pass as the real deal," claims the little girl's parents. "We weren't sure because of past rules of 'no lip synching' whether or not she'd be able to pull it off," said Evancho's father.
But pull it off she did, and in a big way. Although some people are now going over and over the tapes to try and find fault with the performance saying her mouth wasn't moving exactly the way the song went, all in all, everyone agreed that it was just about the most perfect lip synching they'd ever seen. In fact, for a 10-year old to be that seasoned a lip syncher, everyone is saying she has an incredible future ahead of her. Time will tell. If she can pull of Lady Gaga on her next performance, she may just be the most sought after 10-year old in show business. Some are even saying that she may have enough talent to pull off lip synching to Justin Bieber songs as well.
