Ashley Burns AGT Live Show
Singer whom Simon made sing twice–twice) (Quarterfinal Wildcard) – She’s the only Wildcard to survive the Quarterfinals. In her video package, Ansley runs through how Simon kept asking her to sing twice. This week, she’s going to pick her OWN song (apparently friends and family picked the others. Hm). She loves Carrie Underwood, and sings “Cry Pretty.” Eh. Song picks aren’t going to fix Ansley in the short run. She needs time to develop vocally and emotionally. She’s imitating Carrie, all the way down to the way she moves on stage. Julianne is sure America love Ansley Burns. “You are a ray of sunshine,” she says. “America wants to root for you. Maybe the song overpowered her, she says. Sean compares her to Karen Carpenter. UHM NO. Gabrielle loves Ansley. “You are America’s underdog.” Howie thinks the song was too big for her. She needs her own TV show, he says. Simon did not like the staging. But he likes that he’s she’s gutsy and adorable. He asks America to vote based on every performance. Hm. That would mean sending her home…
She's back Tuesday night as the Wild Card on America's Got Talent. I can't wait to see the show tonight! She shows 'em what got got sweetie, and have fun!! Her hometown is pulling for her ! Wish Ansley Burns of Easley
When she was cut, Ansley cried her eyes out. Now she’s back as a wildcard. Will Simon make her sing again for a THIRD time? Hm. Her first outing featured soul songs. Now she’s chirping along to a classic country song “Swinging.” She’s only 12 years old and performs like she hopes to win a sash in a kid beauty pageant. She has pitch problems! In a few years she might be ready, but not now. Simon said the internet hated him after he cut her. He admits that he didn’t like the song, but thinks she has a great voice and personality. He calls her a “little fighter.” Julianne says, “never stop believing in yourself.” Howie is thrilled that she’s back, “you make the world smile.”
Simon Cowell asked the singer to sing a cappella and she did an incredible job!
The southern belle sings "Good Girl" and impresses Simon Cowell with a second a capella version!
Ansley, age 11, wowed the judges with her 2-minute performance of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You."
Viewer react to Ashley Burns AGT Live Show performance
Mary Kraemer I am so glad they provided Ansley a spot on AGT as she deserves this- she has a great voice and lots of personality and I love this little girl – thank you to Simon
Deborah Larrance Coleman She is cute but she isn't a Vegas act. She does have a great voice for her age. I do think she has the potential to become a really good performer. She needs to continue singing and getting vocal lessons and she will get even better.
Arlene Jaye This girl is a STAR!! I didn’t think the song was right for her at first, but when she let go with that spectacular voice, she proved that she’s in it to win it!! I am SO happy Simon brought her back, and she got my votes tonight.
Trent Bieberly Ansley, I am SO happy Simon brought you back. He knows he made a mistake voting you off in the Judge Cuts. You are simply amazing and you give us a reason to watch. Thank you for agreeing to come back for the live show. I voted 10 for you!
