Anna Christine’s Got Talent should be the new name of America’s Got Talent after the 10-year-old dropped jaws, melted hearts, and tickled ears during the season premiere.
To put it bluntly, the young crooner brought down the house last night during a performance on the show, impressing judges and viewers alike with a surprising rendition of the Animals’ “House of the Rising Sun.”
The sweet, innocent looking Christine with blonde hair and pixie smile jumped up to the piano and proved once and for all that you can’t really judge a book by its cover. Like, ever.
Anna Christine is definitely a performer to be reckoned with, and watch this coming season. Howard Stern and Howie Mandel pushed her through to the next round without hesitation, along with new judges Heidi Klum and Mel B.
Speechless after the young girl’s performance, all they could do was approve her advancement with Mandel saying that they’ve found their superstar for the season.
Mel B also complimented Christine, saying that she had a depth which cannot be taught.
Of course, it’s only the very first episode of this season, so we can’t say for sure that the competition is cinched for the pint-sized songstress just yet.
But we’re keeping our eye on her, for sure. Seems like you are, too:
There is no way Anna Christine is 10 years old. Absolutely no way. #AGT
