Jackie Evancho Opens Up About Being Part of 'AGT: The Champions' in New Interview

We were blown away by Jackie Evancho‘s performance on America’s Got Talent: The Champions last week.

Although she didn’t make it to the final show, the 18-year-old opened up in her “exit” interview about why she wanted to be a part of the special season.

“I sang ‘The Music of the Night’ from ‘The Phantom of the Opera,’ the show that got me inspired to sing to begin with,” Jackie shared about her song choice.

She added, “I wanted to be able to be a part of this big celebration of all of these amazing, talented people from around the world. It’s truly amazing to see it.”

“To be competing on this stage compared to all of the other talents, it’s scary. But it’s also really exciting and I’m honored because I’m considered to be a part of those people. That really hit me here [in my heart]. That meant the world to me.”
