Could Opera Singer Emanne Beasha Be The Dark Horse To Win ‘AGT’ This Season?
Young opera singer Emanne Beasha delivered a jaw-dropping performance during the AGT quarterfinals this week. It makes us wonder if Emanne could end up as a dark horse, beating frontrunners Kodi Lee and V.Unbeatable to take home the million-dollar prize.
Let’s take a look at Emanne’s journey in the competition so far, and consider some evidence that she could end up being a threat to the season’s frontrunners.
Emanne Beasha Blew The Judges Away
Emanne, a 10-year-old opera singer who previously won Arab’s Got Talent, gave a show-stopping performance on Tuesday night. “You aren’t just in a different league tonight. You’re on a different planet from everyone else,” Simon Cowell told her.
“What you just did transcended anything that I have ever heard,” Julianne Hough said. “Whether you’re 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, or 60 years old … That was beyond anything that I have ever heard.”
Emanne has been a judges’ favorite from the start of the season. She received four yes votes at her audition, and guest judge Jay Leno hit the Golden Buzzer for her during Judge Cuts. There’s a reason the show saved her for last in this week’s episode.
Should Kodi Lee And V.Unbeatable Be Worried?
At the start of the season, it was easy to think that singer Kodi Lee would have an easy journey to the million-dollar prize. His audition earned Gabrielle Union’s Golden Buzzer and got people talking on social media.
However, even Gabrielle admitted to Talent Recap that V.Unbeatable might be “neck and neck” with Kodi as the competition moves forward. “They came to slay,” Gabrielle said of V.Unbeatable’s quarterfinals performance. “It’s gonna make it really tough for our voters.”
Could Emanne Beasha now be a threat to both of these acts? Her most recent performance makes us think it’s possible. Not to mention the fact that the judges told Talent Recap that Emanne was their standout act from Tuesday’s episode.
Can Emanne Beasha Win AGT?
While Kodi Lee and V.Unbeatable are both serious competition, it’s not out of the question for Emanne to emerge as a dark horse. After all, the show historically has a soft spot for young female singers.
AGT‘s first-ever winner, Bianca Ryan, was just 11 years old when she took home the prize. More recently, Grace VanderWaal captured America’s hearts and walked away from Season 11 as the winner. Ventriloquist and singer Darci Lynne Farmer won Season 12, with fellow youngster Angelica Hale coming in second place.
So while Emanne may not be a lock, she definitely fits the profile of an AGT winner. Do you think she has a chance against Kodi Lee and V.Unbeatable? Who are you rooting for to win this season? Let us know in the comments.
