    America's Got Talent may have found its own Susan Boyle in ten-year-old Jackie Evancho.

    On Wednesday night Jackie made it through to the top 10 of the NBC show, singing an Andrea Bocelli cover version.

    After receiving standing ovations both from the audience and the judges, Sharon Osbourne told the schoolgirl:

    "I know you must realise how blessed you are to have been born with this amazing gift.

    "I hope you realise your life will never be the same again. It will be just as great, but all the great opportunities and all the great adventures you're gonna have, cause your voice is gonna take you all over the world."

    With fellow judge Piers Morgan adding: "We have got a new superstar."

    Jackie began singing at the age of seven, after watching Phantom of the Opera.

    She will now join nine other contestants in the final of the show.
