Jackie Evancho, 10, Wows ‘America’s Got Talent’—But Check Out Her Britney Cover

Robbie Daw / August 11, 2010

Folks, this type of thing never happens. Oh, who are we kidding—it happens all the time. (See: Greyson Chance, Lin Yu Chun, etc.) Ten-year-old Pittsburgh native Jackie Evancho was chosen by America’s Got Talent viewers to compete in last night’s YouTube acts round. And not only did Jackie—who, as host Nick Cannon said, has a timeless voice—sing well, she blew the judges away and her competition out of the water. This of course led us to dig up Evancho’s cover of Britney Spears’ “Everytime,” from her debut album Prelude To A Dream (it’s on iTunes). Watch that, as well as Jackie’s performance on AGT, below.

Jackie, here at age 8 (and with a cold), covers Britney Spears’ 2004 hit “Everytime.”

And, yes—six years later, we still find it confounding to write this song’s title as one word.
