Performing in front of a large audience can be absolutely terrifying. In fact — for some people, it’s their biggest fear. Now, imagine performing an important song like the Star Spangled Banner when one of the cymbals you’re holding, goes crashing to the ground.

What would you do? Run off the stage? Frantically pick it up and burst into tears? Try your best to pretend like nothing happened? All of these things would be running through your head if it happened to you.

Sadly — it did happen. A young student named Andrew was performing at Eisenhower Junior High School in Illinois; he was chosen as a select few to lead the yearly Red and White concert dedicated to our country’s servicemen.

Andrew was ecstatic to take part in the lead because he comes from a family of people who served our country. He was going to play the loud, crashing cymbal — it adds so much power to a song.

Their conductor told the group that they would be starting the concert with a performance of the Star Spangled Banner — our glorious national anthem.

Everything started smoothly, all of the instruments working in perfect harmony and melody. But soon? The handles on Andrew’s cymbals just seem to completely fall apart!

America’s Got Talent has been around for years. At this point in the game — it takes a lot to impress the judges; they’ve seen it all. So when a 12-year-old named Darci Lynne walked onto the stage — they weren’t exactly holding their breath.

Darci Lynne is from Oklahoma City and she entered the room with a pink-haired, floppy-eared rabbit that she calls Petunia. Technically — it would be Petunia that steals the show, not Darci Lynne. Darci Lynne hardly opens her mouth the entire time.

Confused yet? Darci Lynne is a young 12-year-old ventriloquist! Petunia is her beloved partner that just happens to be a silly and adorable puppet. The pair was about to completely blow the judges away and leave them with their jaws dropped.

Darci Lynne and Petunia told the judges that they would be performing their very own rendition of “Summertime” from Porgy And Bess. Let us tell you right now — it’s one of the most incredible renditions you’ll ever hear.

Not even kidding.

The performance was so good — it had one judge give her the coveted golden buzzer. You’re going to want to see this. Continue to the next page!

There’s no doubt that there are some talented people in this world. Talents can range anywhere from singing and dancing to gymnastics or magic. No matter the talent, it’s always fun to watch people perform. In this case? It’s a robot routine.

Yes, you read that correctly — a dancer named Karen X performs a “robot making breakfast” dance type of routine, and it completely blew people’s minds because she was so good.

Karen X is performing at the ‘The Motherflippin’ Flip-Off’ competition. Her choice of performing a robot-inspired routine might sound a little strange but it’s something that she’s been interested in for a while.

According to Karen, “the first time I saw a guy robot dancing, oddly I knew that’s what I wanted to do. I’ve been training almost 3 years now to try to become the most convincing robot I can be.”

Let us just tell you now that Karen is quite the convincing robot. She clumsily makes breakfast, as you’d imagine a robot would, and she moves perfectly with the sound effects. It’s incredible! No wonder the audience is going completely nuts!

Doing impressions of any kind is a hard thing to pull off — so when a young woman auditioning for America’s Got Talent announced that she would be doing impersonations? They weren’t exactly thrilled.

Her name is Melissa and after the judges ask her a few questions, she begins a performance that not one person saw coming. The audience and the judges were about to be completely blown away.

Melissa’s audition starts with an impression of Barbara Walters, the audience’s giggles confirm that she’s off to a good start. Then, the young comedienne moves on to impressions of Natalie Portman and Kathy Griffin.

This is when the crowd absolutely loses it.

It was clear that she was a seriously funny girl, and the entire room was buckled over by her performance. If doing talking impersonations wasn’t enough — she then moves on to singing some famous tunes!

Melissa belts out impersonations of Christina Aguilera and completely nails it. Now she’s proven that she has a set of lungs on her too!

You’re going to watch her performance on the next page — it got her an invite to audition for Saturday Night Live! Continue to the next page to watch.

An 80-year-old woman named Natalie Trayling from Australia is about to completely blow you away by a musical performance. You’ll have no doubt as to why her son calls her the “best ‘unknown’ composer in the world today.”

Natalie has been playing piano around the city of Melbourne for years. She’d find pianos to play anyway she possibly could; hotels, street pianos, stores, or when she was on good times — she’d have her own.

The elderly woman has been through a lot in her 80 years; she lost both of her daughters, has been homeless off and on, and has suffered from medical problems as well. One thing she always had was music.

“Music is everything,” she said in an ABC News special. “I do feel part of it. The whole world is music.”

You can hear the sadness in her music but it’s absolutely beautiful and it’s definitely not something that you want to miss. It’s haunting, it’s chilling, and it’s incredible.

One performance was put up on her son’s YouTube channel and it’s received over 6 million views. You’re going to be moved to tears when you read more below!
