Evie Abplanalp recently had the heartbreaking experience of losing her father to stage 4 colon cancer. However, this didn’t stop her from continuing on to perform during the finale on America’s Got Talent.

At the time of her father’s diagnosis, Armos Abplanalp was given only a 5% chance of survival. However, during his treatment, he still worked at the Latter Day Saint church as a bishop, as well as a prison counselor.

It was actually Armos’ diagnosis that inspired his daughter to audition for the show in the first place. The audience and judges absolutely fell in love with her when she performed a rendition of Macy Gray’s “I Try.” It was a tribute to her father.

She also performed Birdy’s “Wings” and wowed the entire room each time. Apparently, impressing the television audience as well because she kept advancing, round after round.

During semi-finals, she revealed to the judges that her father’s organs were beginning to fail. He had to be placed on life support. They weren’t even sure if he was going to make it through the night.

Evie and her mom needed to stay to hear the results from the semi-finals, but the rest of the family quickly rushed to be by his side. They prayed that he would make it long enough for Evie to come back to say goodbye.

When it was announced that Evie made it to the finals, it was a bittersweet moment. They immediately rushed to visit Armos in the hospital and say their goodbyes. Evie’s mother had to make the decision to take him off of life support the next morning.

There’s nothing ordinary about We McDonald. She doesn’t look like your average 17-year-old and she most definitely doesn’t sound like one.

When she auditioned for the 11th season of the voice, she turned all the chairs with her performance. Her voice was deep, beautiful and fantastically controlled. She sang “Feeling Good” and killed it!

She got a standing ovation from the judges who were very impressed by her performance, especially Miley and Alicia. When the judges asked for her name, a sweet tiny voice came out of her mouth.

The judges couldn’t believe what they were hearing. Her speaking pipes was a far cry from the diva who graced the stage just moment before. And what them got even more riled up is the fact that the young to-be superstar was only 17 years old.

Anyone who would hear that voice wouldn’t think that it came from a teenager.  It sounded like that of a seasoned singer with years of experience behind her.

Have you ever gotten a perk just for being attractive? Everyone knows that when trying out for something, it’s all in your presentation.

Meet Saulo Sarmiento. This incredibly attractive 28 year old comes from the Canary Islands, and his talents are as exotic as his smoldering features. Not that he needs talent to get what he wants, but you’d think it would make a difference on a show like Britain’s Got Talent, right?

You start to wonder if Saulo’s just there to model, but in addition to being sexy he makes his living as an aerial acrobat. Watch out ladies, this beaut’s main stage prop is a pole! That’s right, he’s taking it back from the ladies in unprecedented style!

Jackie Evancho has officially entered the world of adulthood.

From her interview with People magazine:

The opera prodigy — who rose to fame in 2010 when she was the runner-up on America’s Got Talentat the age of 10 —says she’s grown older and wiser since turning 18 earlier this year, but she’s still very much a kid at heart.

“It feels kinda the same as 17 at first, but then all the responsibilities come hitting you all at once and I suddenly wish I was 17 again,” the “Pedestal” singer tells PEOPLE. But, she says of adulthood, “I love it, I get more control of my career now which is amazing.”

But unfortunately, one of the most challenging experiences for Jackie could have derailed her entire career.

Read On to see what this difficult experience was and how she handled it.

Adrian Romoff is only 9-years-old but he’s accomplished more in his nine years than most of us will in a lifetime. Oh, and his musical abilities? They’re off the charts.

That’s why the judges didn’t think it was really him playing when he auditioned for America’s Got Talent.

 

Adrian has already skipped five grades, has had concerts at Carnegie Hall, took third place in the American Protege International Music Talent competition, and appeared on The Ellen Show.

 

 

Did we mention he’s only 9-years-old? Howard Stern was so impressed by how many grades he skipped in school, he had to stand up and give him a standing ovation!

 

 

When Adrian auditioned for the ninth season of America’s Got Talent, the judges had no idea what they were in for. The talented kid opted to play the very complicated “Flight of the Bumblebee” on the piano.

 

 

“Are you exhausted now?” a visibly shocked Heidi Klum asked. “I’m exhausted from this.”

 

“Well you’d be even more exhausted if you were doing this,” replied the out-of-breath contestant as everyone busted out laughing.

 

 

But Howard Stern wasn’t quite buying it. He told Adrian that there had to be a soundtrack playing in the background. He just couldn’t believe it was all him…just this 9 year old doing this amazing performance with no help.

 

But Adrian just casually shrugged his shoulders and confidently offered to sing another song to prove his worthiness. And the judges loved it and so Heidi granted him permission to do another performance.

 

 

So then Adrian starts playing the piano again. And ends up doing an even BETTER performance on the piano. Watching him perform…you just can’t believe this is only a 9 year old kid. Even his mannerisms, and body language looked like that of an adult, not a kid!

 

 

Adrian started playing the piano when he was just 4-years-old and you can see he’s clearly mastered the craft….

 

 

When he started playing for the judges the second time, he decided on Chopin’s “Grande Valse Brillante” in E-flat major. Not for the rookie piano player…

 

 

All of the judges, especially Howard Stern, were completely shocked.

 

“You are the future. You are absolutely brilliant, the way you play, you live that music, I see it coming through your body,” Howie exclaimed.

 

 

“You are so far beyond your years. You know what, England has Harry Potter, we have you!”
