Jackie Evancho to perform on Canada’s Got Talent season finale


From a media release:


As announced earlier this evening on Citytv’s Canada’s Got Talent, beloved America’s Got Talent runner up Jackie Evancho will take the stage in the eagerly-awaited season finale on Monday, May 14.

As a contestant on the series in 2010, Evancho captivated audiences with her astonishing classical soprano performances. A Pittsburgh-native, Evancho first began singing at age seven, launching her own YouTube channel and performing at high-profile events before catapulting to stardom on America’s Got Talent. Following her success on the series, she released a seasonal collection of hits, which rocketed up the Billboard charts and cemented Evancho as one of 2010’s top-selling debut artists. Last summer, Evancho released her first full-length album, Dream With Me, on Sony Music Entertainment Inc., which is comprised of classical arias, pop classics and Oscar®-winning show tunes. The album was produced by 16-time Grammy® Award-winning Canadian David Foster, and featured duets with music legend Barbra Streisand and international phenomenon Susan Boyle. Since then, Evancho has been on tour, gracing audiences around the world with her exceptional talent.

In addition to tonight’s announcement about Evancho’s appearance in the finale, Canada’s biggest talent search continued, as the next group of semifinalists took the stage in the fourth, live Canada’s Got Talent performance show on Citytv. The semifinalists competing for the viewers’ votes were: Enigma Dance Productions (Montreal), Ivan Daigle (Petitcodiac, NB), Jack, Michel & Maria Forestier (Edmonton), Lisa Odjig (Manitoulin Island, ON), Mathew Cathcart (Hamilton, ON), and The Dance & Illusions of Oslen (Vancouver).

    1. Canada’s Got Talent has nothing to do with Canada other than the name. It is owned by British Got Talent and is controlled by Simon Cowell. Syco Entertqainment has Jackie Evancho under contract.

  1. @Norm – Canada’s got artists, for sure, just none that have done what Jackie has done. Maybe some day. And besides, at least some of what she’s done has been with the help and mentoring of an incredibly successful Canadian – remember David Foster?

  2. A very fitting return since her Toronto Performance May 31, 2011. Canada deserves to hear this child sing again.

  3. Can’t wait to see my favourite child singer Jackie Evancho on CGT…love her Concert DVD with David Foster, have watched it many times..wonderful choice ..

  4. Jackie has supported Canada’s Got Talent since before it started. She is a great choice to be on the fanale ending the first year for CGT. I believe Canadian David Foster has been a great influence for Jackie after she got into the public eye at the AGT in 2010. As far as the CGT is concerned, I want to watch all the acts, I hope they are on the Internet. I know there is a lot of talent in Canada. Some of the best singers have come from Canada.

  5. It is true that David Foster has been a great help for Jackie, but it´s because he knows Jackie has an extraordinary talent.

  6. @Pepet — if she didn’t have an extraordinary talent, this whole string would be moot! Pretty pointless.
