Outstanding singer Freckled Zelda made the America’s Got Talent judges question everything. Due to the singer’s cosplay attire they expected to be dissapointed, little did they know her voice is far from disappointing.

Freckled Zelda took the America’s Got Talent stage in their most recent early release. She explained that she’s a music fairy from the freckled forest. Before getting into the act, Freckled Zelda showed the instrument around her neck, an ocarina.

Freckled Zelda Has a Shockingly Good Voice

Freckled Zelda kicked off her audition by playing the ocarina, but soon after she showed off her powerful voice with a rendition of “Colors of The Wind” from Pocahontas. She hit each note with perfection, then began playing the instrument once again mid-song. The audience clearly loved this singer, they stood as soon as her performance ended.

Throughout the performance, the camera cuts to the judges, who don’t seem as impressed as the audience. If I’m being honest, I really thought they were going to give her a “no.” Even though the judges didn’t seem into it, they praised her voice.

“I’ll tell you what, when you walked out I thought this really is going to be terrible. I did, and actually you’ve got a really good voice,” Cowell said. “I mean you know, I don’t like the instrument, don’t think it’s necessary, carry on looking like that if you want because you’re interesting.”


Other judges questioned whether the fairy outfit was necessary for the act or not, but Freckled Zelda reassured them that it is who she is. She explained that she’s never going to change because she’s a “fairy for the rest of my life.”

In the end, Freckled Zelda was complimented embracing her true self on the stage. Even though there are plenty of singers on the America’s Got Talent stage, they made it clear to her that she doesn’t need to look or act like anyone else. Freckled Zelda earned four yeses from the judges. We cannot wait to see how she does in the next round.
