10-Year-Old Opera Prodigy Wins Jay Leno’s ‘AGT’ Golden Buzzer
Talent like this doesn't come around often and the judges proved that in their reactions.
A 10-year-old opera prodigy is taking this season’s “America’s Got Talent” by storm this year and it’s easy to see why. Emanne Beasha made her debut in June when she handily earned approval from all four judges. When she recently returned, she shocked everyone even more with a jaw-dropping performance of a song that is difficult for even experienced opera singers.
10-Year-Old Opera Singer
The young Florida girl was incredibly comfortable on stage facing not only thousands in the audience but millions of viewers at home. If she was nervous, it certainly didn’t show. Emanne’s appearance is not indicative of an opera singer and that helps make her performance so stunning. Nobody expects a child to have such command over her voice.
Anyone who appreciates opera or talent, in general, will be blown away after watching Emanne sing in the video below. Her voice was perfect and carried over the entire arena. Not only is this child gifted, but she has a charming personality as well.
Wow! Incredibly, she was only getting started. For her return to the country’s most well-known talent contest, Emanne upped the stakes by singing an even more challenging song, Lucio Dalla’s “Caruso.”
The talented child didn’t want to phone it in. Instead, she challenged herself by choosing what she called “the hardest song I’ve ever done.”
Opera Prodigy Gets Golden Buzzer From Jay Leno
Her “America’s Got Talent” return was for the Judge’s Cut. Former late show host Jay Leno was on hand to lend his expertise. Leno didn’t take long to make a decision on Emanne. He looked stunned during the performance and then quickly decided to use his Golden Buzzer on the 10-year-old who will now be advancing to the live shows.

Leno wasn’t the only one praising the quickly rising star.
“To have a voice like this is not something you train to get; it genuinely is a gift,” Simon Cowell said.
Howie Mandel praised the young opera star saying, “We are seeing acts coming out here … and they aren’t stepping it up and they are double your age. Then you come out here and show them how it’s done.”
Emanne was born in Amman, Jordan but now lives in North Port, Florida. In 2017, she won “Arabs Got Talent.” Her 11th birthday will be the day of this season’s “America’s Got Talent” finale.
