Jackie Evancho Performs as Guest on Finale of 'Canada's Got Talent'

Soprano phenom sings 'Angel' from her 'Dream With Me' CD.

Soprano Jackie Evancho completed a Got Talent trifecta when she performed "Angel" as a special guest on Monday night's finale of Canada's Got Talent.

The 12-year-old soprano from Richland Township rocketed to fame on  in 2010 and performed on  in 2011.

Host Dina Pugliese called her "an angel on earth" after Jackie performed the song from her Dream With Me CD.

"Beautiful job, sweetheart," Pugliese said. "Sounding wonderful as always."

Noting that Jackie was a finalist on America's Got Talent, Pugliese asked what it felt like to be in the finale as Monday night's Canadian contestants were.

"I felt very nervous and excited at the same time and I just really wanted to get on the stage and just have so much fun," Jackie said.

"I know that it's a very rough time and you really just want to know what's going to happen. But, I mean, whatever happens happens.  

"And you know, just because you don't win doesn't mean you're not great. You should always just keep going for your dreams."

Pugliese then asked Jackie how she balances school with traveling all over the world.

"We kinda schedule it in. I usually do school in the morning. When I'm home I do a lot of school so I can catch up. And lately school's been super fun and I'm learning a lot of fun stuff in math and I'm really enjoying it."

Pugliese gave Jackie "an A plus plus" for saying she enjoyed math, then reminded viewers that the soprano's new album comes out in September.

So very proud of Jackie. There is no question her voice is maturing even more, and that's to be expected, but hard to believe. A beautiful performance and her stage presence is growing by leaps and bounds. What can I say, she has stolen my heart along with millions of invisible fans all over the world. Thanks for the nice article Cindy.

Cindy, Thanks for another wonderful article on Jackie. I always enjoy coming here to see the "home town" perspective. I really appreciate what you do! Jackie once again performed "Angel" beautifully and was so very confident in her interviews. It was exciting to hear about the new "movie themed" CD. We are all waiting so impatiently for it to come out! Joe Merkt Thompsons Station, TN
