    oh my god. she understands the music and her intonation is perfect. Her instrument is astoundingly mature, although, of course, her use of it is not as much so – but that will undoubtedly come. Hearbreakingly sweet.

    LOL @ Bill…. ain’t it the truth!??!!

    Seeing the dreck the U.S. puts on display sort of makes one nauseous.

    She’s wonderful, but the judges’ mugging for the camera spoils the performance. That’s why I never watch any of our own shows of that genre.

    I agree about that judges’ mugging and doing double takes and looking bewitched in a fake way that’s meant for the camera. It’s like a Three Stooges routine. They spoil any pleasure you might get.

    @Derrick, I also noticed her large, doll-like eyes. Beautiful.

    I bet Jackie Evacho is pissed (joke).

    And Honey Boo Boo is only one of many kids who bubble up into our pop culture consciousness. Why not focus on the others (i.e. Jackie Evacho)?

    I don’t know what you meant about America not having talent, compared to elsewhere. Jackie Evancho smokes her easily. Don’t get me wrong, this girl is a phenom…but just go listen to Jackie Evancho’s.

    the judge who didn’t carry on is an american who seems to be on permanent loan to the dutch, dan karaty, choreographer and nigel lythgoe flunky.

    and i remain totally ungrateful for child opera singers, until they grow into their voices. they pop up all over the world. by the time they would have reached their prime they are sick of the music world or batshit crazy.
