11-Year-Old Canadian Singer Roberta Battaglia Floors ‘AGT’ Judges With Alessia Cara Cover

The stakes are high for the final batch of performers on Tuesday night’s edition of “America’s Got Talent” — the last chance to impress the judges before the new champion is crowned on Wednesday finale.

The episode kicked off with a decidedly Canadian twist, courtesy of 11-year-old Toronto singer Roberta Battaglia.

In fact, Battaglia’s song choice also paid tribute to her home and native land: “Scars To Your Beautiful” by her fellow Canadian Alessia Cara.

Her powerful voice and emotional performance earned a standing ovation from all three judges, with Heidi Klum telling the youngster she was “born to be a singer.”

Howie Mandel went even further, telling Battaglia that she’s the performer that everyone else needs to beat, pointing out that she’s been a fan-favourite from the off.
