WATCH Norwegian Teen Star Angelina Jordan Wow At ‘AGT Champions’ Finals
The AGT: Champions finals are next week, and Angelina Jordan is coming to slay. The 13-year-old singer, who earned the Golden Buzzer from Heidi Klum in the season premiere, is performing an Elton John classic.
Angelina will be going up against fellow Golden Buzzer V. Unbeatable, as well as Filipino singing sensation Marcelito Pomoy. Does she have what it takes to be named the winner? You be the judge.
Angelina Jordan Performs In The ‘AGT: Champions’ Finals
In a preview of next week’s finals, Angelina performs “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” by Elton John. Dressed appropriately in a yellow blazer, the young singer put her own unique spin on the tune, much like she did for Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” in her first performance.
Angelina was accompanied by a pianist as she belted the song with her signature jazzy tone. It’s no wonder she won Norway’s Got Talent at age 8. We have a feeling Angelina’s singing talent will only get better and better as the years go by.
What Did The ‘AGT: Champions’ Judges Think?
The judges were impressed with Angelina’s performance. That includes Heidi Klum, who said, “You make your Golden Buzzer mama so proud!” She called Angelina “a superstar in the making” and praised the “melancholy” she injected into the song.
Howie Mandel, meanwhile, said the word that comes to mind when he listens to her sing is “hypnotic.” Alesha Dixon called her “an old soul trapped in a young person’s body.” Simon Cowell praised her for taking a risk and said he would remember the performance for years. He added that she made the song sound “current” and “relevant.”
