    It would have been nice if Jackie had won. If I was her father I would say better to come second. She needs time and space to be allowed to grow as a normal child, finish at least high school and protect her voice so that we can LATER enjoy her awesome singing voice. God bless her.

  4. Yolanda says:

    Awesome performance from Jackie. Cute dress too. Was surprised to see that it’s the same or very similar to this dress

  5. Jacqueline says:

    OMG, lil Jackie is beautiful. I sing in a choir and always loved Sarah Brightman’s CD; however my music teacher could always pick up on Brightman’s flaws. Seeing her on AGT, she did awful. Her voice sounded so strained and off key. There are very little to no flaws with Jackie Ivancho. She’s young now and has her whole life ahead of her. Yes, Ivancho’s dress is super cute. Her voice will be even more outstanding than it is today. Ivancho, just learn from all the great vocal teachers you will encounter in your life. You are a star and will be even more amazing. Singers sing great until age 55, so you have decades ahead of you. ENJOY LIFE!!!

  6. Rod Mendez says:

    Sarah’s voice is more powerful as she is a matured singer. But Definitely Jackie’s voice is more soothing, it’s fresh and pure, unforced even at high notes that makes people, and even music professionals wonder. Jackie deserves all the accolades from her nnnMILLIONS of fans not only in America but in the whole WORLD. Jackie Evancho is just ‘GREAT’.

  7. Judy A says:

    Jackie’s prize was singing with her favorite Sarah Brightman. I hope they develop a true friendship and that Andrew L. Webber at least sent her some beautiful flowers along with wonderful words.

  8. JJ says:

    Jackie blew all the other contestants away. That stupid Las Vegas prize did her in. Why in the world would they offer a prize like that when children are on the show is beyond me.

  9. Galen says:

    WOW! Now that was a truly magnificent performance! No way in the world that Jackie should have lost.

  10. Dean B says:

    Very tired of all the false publicity surrounding this little girl. People trying to make everyone think she is more talented than she actually is.However enjoyed some of the other acts,which were more talented without all the hype.
