HOLLYWOOD - Ten-year-old Jackie Evancho, who placed second on America's Got Talent, has agreed to make a cameo appearance on the top rated teen show iCarly which stars Miranda Cosgrove.
Miranda told a reporter for the television publication TV Clickerworld that the Pittsburgh native will portray Jenny Shay, who is a cousin of Miranda's TV character Carly Shay.
Jackie will appear on the iCarly production video web site where she will perform two songs. The first song will be an Italian wine making classic entitled, "The Salami Salami Song of Happy Happiness."
The song was especially written for the iCarly show by one of the biggest iCarly fans in America, the one and only legendary crooner Tony Bennett.
Bennett, who is 84, says that he never misses the show and has actually memorized the words to every single song that has ever been sung on the show including the two hits that were written by the trio of Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and Demi Lovato and performed on the show entitled, "My Skin Is Itching To Be Touched" and "I Can Giggle, And Wiggle, And Fa Shizzle My Nizzle."
Tony said that he liked both songs so much that he is actually thinking about recording them both for his next album entitled, Tony Bennett Sings The Songs Of Today's Youth Even The Youth From Arizona.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: Tony is what is known as a kidder from way back. Lots of times when he happens to see a lot of youngsters in the audience he will change the words of his big hit "I Left My Heart In San Francisco" to "I Left My iPod In San Francisco.]
