Guest judge Jay Leno used the coveted golden buzzer to put one awesomely talented 10-year-old through to America’s Got Talent’s live rounds. And the talented kiddo’s performance wasn’t what anyone expected!

Ten-year-old Emanne Beasha has a voice to envy, but instead of the typical tween or teen pop you might expect from someone her age, Beasha is more of an opera diva.

Beasha wowed viewers and the judges with her performance of “Caruso” sung completely in Italian. AGT’s Howie Mandel said of Beasha’s powerful operatic performance, “You’re only 10-years-old, and we are seeing acts come out here and they’re sweating, and they’re not performing to par, they’re not stepping it up, and they’re double your age.” Mandel went on to add, “And then you come out here and you show them how it’s done.”

Leno, who gave the young star the go-ahead with the golden buzzer said, “I feel like I am witness to something extremely special.” And we totally agree!
