Simon Cowell Made Her Cry But ‘AGT’s Charlotte Summers is Still Singing
With a voice like butter, 13 year old Charlotte Summers began Season 14 of America’s Got Talent on a high note, blowing the judges away with her rendition of ‘I Put A Spell On You.’ Charlotte’s popularity wasn’t enough to help her escape the wrath of Simon Cowell who made the young star cry after her performance of Shirley Bassey’s ‘Diamonds Are Forever.’
The judges felt the song was too mature for Charlotte and did not show her personality. When the song selection seemed to be the reason why the fan favorite was sent home early during the quarterfinals, backlash ensued. With a huge fan-base, many were left confused and theories began to form about who would choose a song that the judges would go on and deem “too mature” for her.
At the time, Charlotte could have been considered a seasoned professional. Before reaching the America’s Got Talent stage, she had already appeared on several talent shows. She first rose to fame after competing on the talent show series La Voz Kids. Charlotte also won the ‘Big Talent Marbella’ competition in Spain.
The young star also performed twice on NBC’s ‘Little Big Shots,’ and won an international award for her song ‘Unicorn.’
