5 Facts On ‘AGT’ Singer Annie Jones

1. Annie appeared on ‘Australia’s Got Talent.’

This isn’t Annie’s first time on a Got Talent show. In 2019, Annie auditioned for the show in her home country of Australia. She was voted through to the next round by the judges following a standing ovation, but unfortunately Annie was eliminated during the Judge Cuts. Here’s hoping she’ll have better luck on America’s Got Talent this year.

3. Annie has performed some amazing covers.

4. She was on a TV show called ‘The InBESTigators.’

Annie has also broken into television. Last year, she made a guest appearance on an Australian children’s show called The InBESTigators, about a group of kids who start their own detective agency. Annie appeared in an episode titled “The Case of the Disoriented Drone.” She said on Instagram that she “loved every second on set filming.”

5. She held a note for 15 seconds on television.

Earlier this year, Annie appeared on the Australian show The Project, and was challenged to impress host Tommy Little with a 15-second trick. Annie’s trick was holding a musical note for that amount of time. Tommy was impressed, but Annie unfortunately didn’t win the $500 prize. However, that musical talent will certainly come in handy on AGT this season.
